Surviving in Seattle,
This review is from: Always (Hardcover)
Aud Torvingen is back for more punishment in the third of Nicola Griffith's wonderful series. She travels from Atlanta to Seattle with her friend Dornan to meet her mother and her mother's new husband. Whilst there she is checking up on some property she owns, currently leased by a film company. Soon Aud is embroiled in movie production, sabotage and a potential romance. At the same time Griffith relates Aud's earlier experience of running a women's self defence class in Atlanta, and the dramatic result of the training and advice she gave.
Aud is a fascinating character, always believing she is in control and totally self contained. But Griffith, over the series, has stricken her with grief, had her shot, cut, beaten and poisoned. This Aud is reeling from her experiences over the last couple of years and is all the more engaging for it. Read and enjoy.
