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...

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.

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.
