Publisher's Summary

Detective Angie Pallorino took down a serial killer permanently and, according to her superiors, with excessive force. Benched on a desk assignment for twelve months, Angie struggles to maintain her sense of identity - if she's not a detective, who is she? Then a decades-old cold case washes ashore, pulling her into an investigation she recognizes as deeply personal.

Angie's lover and partner, James Maddocks, sees it, too. But spearheading an ongoing probe into a sex-trafficking ring while keeping Angie's increasing obsession with her case in check is taking its toll. As startling connections between the parallel investigations emerge, Maddocks realizes he has even more than Angie's emotional state to worry about.

Driven and desperate to solve her case, Angie goes rogue, risking her relationship, career, and very life in pursuit of answers. She'll learn that some truths are too painful to bear, and some sacrifices include collateral damage.

But Angie Pallorino won't let it go. She can't. It's not in her blood.

WOW! The intensity is palpable!

The Lullaby Girl is the second novel in Loreth Anne White's Angie Pallorino series. Listening to The Drowned Girls first is not necessary in order to appreciate this very dark and disturbing novel. Angie Pallorino is a police detective in Vancouver, BC, Canada. The Lullaby Girl is about Pallorino discovering the personal history she does not remember prior to being found on church steps at age 4. Where did she com from? Who were her parents? Did she have siblings? This is an almost uniquely intense suspense mystery. The narration is first rate.

couldn't finish this one

First off I really hated this narrator. Everything seemed whiney and like a question.
Secondly, I finally turned the book off with 3 hours left. This book felt like it was going nowhere and I couldn't care less what happened. The whole book felt like nothing but a pity party and repetition.
I won't be getting another of those series if its the same narrator.

Such is a sequel...

After I listened to the first book in this series, I immediately purchased and started listening to this one. It was a good purchase, but I found myself exasperated with the heroine’s attitude and disregard for advice/help. It was a bit like watching the screaming female in a horror movie as she runs into the closed, dark basement from the killer instead of to her running car outside.
There are some smart teasers and twists in the book that you won’t see coming and that make the story great.
Love that the narrator is the same in the first and second books. As in the first, she excels in the second with her voices, accents, and ebbs and flows. Really hoping she is on the 3rd book as well!

Enjoyable but Listen to Drowned Girls First!

This is the second in the Angie P. series written by Loreth Anne White. Julie McKay is a truly fantastically talented voice performer!

I have a strong feeling order will matter in this series and definitely for the first and second book. This book with makes far more sense after reading Drowned Girls. White is not shy writing steamy sex scenes with vivid vocabulary and descriptions that I do not particularly enjoy and this is one of the reasons it’s only a four-star story for me, but if it’s your thing then you might like the story more than I. The producers the descriptions are adequate so I won’t go into to story to avoid any spoilers.

I have listened to several books narrated by McKay recently and have really noticed talent. Let’s face it, if you are reading this, then you know very well that Audible members pay extra money for the audiobook for a reason. I do so for a medical reason. I have debilitating headaches but love to read, so audiobooks allow me to not only the ability to read still but without all the extra eye strain caused by the light required to either read in print or ebook formats. I say all this to demonstrate my need for audio versions and to underline the fact that not everyone can produce a talented narration. Many are so untalented that they actually make a good story unbearable to enjoy listening. McKay is far from falling into this category! She is a master in her subtle use of inflection. Her voice range is more limited than some other voice masters but she makes up for it with her use of tone, pitch, emotional expression, and inflection. I will listen to any book read my McKay knowing the audible will be an enjoyable experience as long as the writing is not below average.

Sequel

Hopefully there’ll be a third book. It’s subtle compared to the first one. You rock LAW and JM.

Amazing!

The story kept me hooked on every word. I didn't think it could get better than book 1 but it did. The narration was excellent!

Paperwork

That’s what this book seemed like. I loved the Drowned Girls and was excited to read this book.
However it was obvious pretty early that it wasn’t going to be nearly as exciting as the first. The first book was the hint for a serial killer and the second felt like the paperwork a detective would have to file after catching a serial killer.

Good story, pace and narration.

Can't wait to see what the future holds for Angie, Maddox, Jacko and the rest of the team.
