The Girls in the Lake
- Beth Adams, Book 2
- By: Helen Phifer
- Narrated by: Alison Campbell
- Length: 7 hrs and 53 mins
The discovery of a young student floating face down in Lake Windermere, her naked skin almost translucent in the freezing water, looks like yet another tragic teen suicide. But the victim’s lack of clothes make forensic pathologist Beth Adams investigate further. Anything to distract her from the arrival of her abusive ex-boyfriend’s body on the mortuary table that morning. With witnesses keeping tight-lipped and any clues washed away by the tides, it’s up to Beth to find the evidence her team needs. But then another girl is found in the lake, this time still clinging to life.

Good story but narrator’s voice grates
The narrative is interesting and provides lots of twists and well developed characters, but the voice of the narrator can be very grating at times. It’s “little girl” quality is unsuitable for this genre.
