Narrator Imogen Church adeptly plays all of the characters in this latest mystery, The It Girl, from Ruth Ware. Host Jo Reed and AudioFile’s Michele Cobb discuss the story of Hannah, bookstore owner and soon-to-be mother, who is suddenly revisiting shocking events of her past in Oxford. Hannah’s roommate, April, was the “it girl” who drew Hannah into her orbit—and who was murdered. When a journalist grows suspicious that the man convicted of the murder was actually innocent, Hannah becomes determined to discover the truth. Church stays engaged as she takes listeners into the past to discover what really happened in Oxford 10 years earlier.
