The Gingerbread Girl by Stephen King on CD

Gingerbread Girl
by Stephen King

Emily escapes to the secluded Vermillion Key off of Florida’s coast after the death of her infant child. Her new neighbor also enjoys the privacy of the key, but the women he brings with him never return home. Emily’s curiosity leads her right into the hands of the madman, but it’s her legs that are her only hope for survival.

Spoiler Alert: Out for a run after moving into her father’s cabin for a bit–she’s trying to get the thoughts of her estranged husband and the child they lost out of her head–Emily is curious about the car she sees in her neighbor’s drive. The trunk is open, and she’d swear she could see what looks like hair in there. She goes down the driveway, meaning to just take a closer look and then run home to call the police, when instead, she is captured by whoever captured (and killed) the blonde woman in the trunk. Despite the fact that her husband had complained about how much running Emily had been doing lately, it seems that the running has provided her with the one thing could help her get away from this murderous madman.
