    Fate has not been kind to Gemma Hardy. Orphaned then neglected, young Gemma seemed destined for a life of hardship and loneliness. Yet her bright spirit burns strong. Fiercely intelligent, singularly determined, Gemma overcomes each challenge and setback, growing stronger and more certain of her path. Now an independent young woman, she accepts a position as an au pair on the remote and beautiful Orkney Islands. But Gemma’s biggest trial is about to begin....

    Where does The Flight of Gemma Hardy rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    It is a different genre from what I normally read, but I certainly enjoyed it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Of course, Gemma, with her doggedness to just go on.


    Have you listened to any of Davina Porter???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Davina Porter is a favorite narrator. I read the book first and enjoyed the story enough that I wanted to hear Davina Porter read it. She is excellent.

    As commander of the River Police, Monk is accustomed to violent death, but the mutilated female body found on Limehouse Pier one chilly December morning moves him with horror and pity. The victim’s name is Zenia Gadney. Her waterfront neighbors can tell him little - only that the same unknown gentleman had visited her once a month for many years. She must be a prostitute, but - described as quiet and kempt - she doesn’t appear to be a fallen woman. What sinister secrets made poor Zenia worth killing?

    In her latest suspense masterpiece, Karin Slaughter weaves together moving, powerful human stories of characters as real as they are complex and unforgettable. At the same time she has crafted a work of dazzling storytelling and spine-tingling mystery - as three people, with their own wounds and their own secrets, are all that stand between a madman and his next crime.

    Kara says: "SERIES IN WRONG ORDER!!!!!!"

    From the introductory scene to the ending, this will keep your attention. Excellent!
