    In the summer of 1991, Arkady Renko has returned from exile and is back on the homicide squad in a newly democratic Moscow. When Arkady’s informant, Rudy Rosen, and his underworld bank-on-wheels are consumed in a ball of fire, Arkady finds himself in an investigation that points to the heart of Russia’s decaying infrastructure.

    When Ruth Pratchett discovers her husband is having a passionate affair with the lovely romantic novelist Mary Fisher, she is so seized by envy she becomes truly diabolic, embarking on a course of destruction which brings those around her their just deserts and herself an amazing reward. This is the fantasy of the wronged woman made real: wild, funny, true.

    Where does The Life and Loves of a She-Devil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved this mini-series when it came out years ago and was definitely pleased to know the series was true to the book. Listened to it twice already!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Life and Loves of a She-Devil?

    Ruth's transformation


    What does Patricia Hodge bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice inflections were right on


    Who was the most memorable character of The Life and Loves of a She-Devil and why?

    Obviously it was Ruth the she- devil. None of us really knows the power inside of us until it is forced out of us
