The It Girl (Unabridged)
INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
The #1 New York Times bestselling author of the “claustrophobic spine-tingler” (People) One by One returns with an unputdownable mystery following a woman on the search for answers a decade after her friend’s murder.
April Clarke-Cliveden was the first person Hannah Jones met at Oxford.
Vivacious, bright, occasionally vicious, and the ultimate It girl, she quickly pulled Hannah into her dazzling orbit. Together, they developed a group of devoted and inseparable friends—Will, Hugh, Ryan, and Emily—during their first term. By the end of the year, April was dead.
Now, a decade later, Hannah and Will are expecting their first child, and the man convicted of killing April, former Oxford porter John Neville, has died in prison. Relieved to have finally put the past behind her, Hannah’s world is rocked when a young journalist comes knocking and presents new evidence that Neville may have been innocent. As Hannah reconnects with old friends and delves deeper into the mystery of April’s death, she realizes that the friends she thought she knew all have something to hide…including a murder.
“The Agatha Christie of our generation” (David Baldacci, #1 New York Times bestselling author) proves once again that she is “as ingenious and indefatigable as the Queen of Crime” (The Washington Post) with this propulsive murder mystery that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Ruth Ware, author of The Woman in Cabin 10 and The Lying Game, has become a bit of a mystery superstar. In this gripping thriller, a young woman’s dream of studying at Oxford turns into a living nightmare. Hannah can’t believe her luck when campus it girl April becomes her roommate, taking her under her wing and introducing her to a new clique of the university’s most flamboyant and elite students—including the handsome and charming Will. But all that comes to an end when April’s murder shatters the friends’ insular bond. Things get even worse a decade later, when new evidence suggests that Hannah’s testimony may have helped convict an innocent man. As Hannah searches for the truth, shocking twists emerge. Narrator Imogen Church, who’s done a great job with all of Ware’s previous audiobooks, makes each character instantly recognizable. The It Girl puts a dark spin on posh university life.
Love Ruth Ware!
Another great mystery
The It Girl
Needs a little tweaking but ok
The storyline was basically good and had some good twists and turns. Some predictable but most not! Which was great! However, the narration… ugh. Almost stopped listening but had paid enough, so had to get through it. I think with a little tightening up on writing of the story and a more outgoing narrator… it would have proved to be 5 star.
