Detective Inspector January David has always put his professional before his private life, but the two worlds are about to clash horrifically as he visits his latest crime scene. He is confronted by a lifeless figure suspended ten feet above a theatre stage, blood pouring from her face into a coffin below. This gruesome execution is the work of an elusive serial killer. Three women from three different London suburbs, each murdered with elaborate and chilling precision. And as January stares at the most beautiful corpse he's ever seen, he detects the killer's hallmark. But Girl 4 is different: She is alive - barely. And January recognises her....
Interesting and unsuspected plot and finale. Characters believable especially, January Davis. could not have anticipated ending until the final chapters
While I was enthralled by this book at times, especially with the wonderfully performed narration. Overall, this book has no flow to it. At times the supernatural and mystery genres just collided and never commingled. Although it is cliche to say the storyline did very much remind me of Gone Girl, but bc of the storyline going everywhere I never seemed to be into it.
Good listen for the beach or car medium suspension of reality, some good twists that kept it from being at all predictable.
Would you listen to Girl 4 again? Why?
Yes, very original handling of an old genre.
Have you listened to any of Nicki Paull and Richard Aspel ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Nicki's reading is marvelous. Richard's nasal tone is just short of annoying and makes all his "characters" sound much the same, but listenable.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Loved, loved,LOVED the ending!!!!
Any additional comments?
Can't wait for his next!
