Stella Darnell’s father died a year ago, but she has not moved on. He was Chief Superintendent at Hammersmith police station, and cleaning his house, Stella discovers a folder of photographs in his darkroom. The oldest photograph is dated 1966; to the very day the Moors Murderers were sent to prison for life. As Stella inches closer to the truth, the events of that day begin to haunt her too...

Critic Reviews

"Lesley Thomson is a class above" (Ian Rankin)

"This is a haunting novel about loss and reconciliation, driven by a simple but clever plot" (Sunday Times)

I didn't understand the story and found it confusing, the narrator didn't help much. I always rely on the rating when choosing my books but I guess this isn't the best way to ensure a good listen.

Didn't get this story

I'm afraid I struggled with this book understanding the actual story line . I kept with it because I love Annie aldington . But as a story I didn't enjoy nor get .

Excellent again....

Don't be put off by the different narrator (from the first in this series on audible) as you soon get used to the different voice and obviously, the characters and their quirks remain the same.
This story is, at times, a little hard to keep up with, but was thoroughly enjoyed nonetheless and I especially loved the continuation from 'The Detective's daughter' and how Terry's name was kept alive. Stella and Jack almost feel like real people now....
I think I will miss this audible book as it has been my companion Over the last 10 days! Looking forward to the next now and seeing how things progress. Would recommend to anyone who likes a crime/detective novel with a good twist !

Needed pen and paper to keep up with this good story but to complex to listen too needs reading but Annie is an excellent orator

Monotone reading

What did you like best about Ghost Girl? What did you like least?

The story could have been interesting but was overshadowed by the irritating reading

What was one of the most memorable moments of Ghost Girl?

Events were lost in the reading

What didn’t you like about Annie Aldington’s performance?

The reading was flat and without any rythmn. It sounded like a child who was reading to the rest of her class without any understanding of the story

Do you think Ghost Girl needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

If another book is written I hope another reader is chosen

Any additional comments?

A supreme effort was needed to listen to this book. I really dislike abandoning a reading but this time I was sorely tempted.
