About this deal

The two storylines had merit but both seem to have been rushed at the end and left me with unanswered questions.

The narrator has a pleasant voice - but as I have mentioned before, all of the characters sound pretty much alike. Ryan and Philips, as members of Northumbria CID, and their ‘team’ must solve these crimes to prevent more death and destruction. The Bookseller magazine has reported on Louise having topped the ‘Most Read’ and ‘Most Sold’ fiction charts, and she has garnered an army of loyal fans who love her atmospheric and addictive storytelling. We have a Scot, an Irish, and a Londoner, but they all seem to have the same accent - if not all of the time, most of the time. It was often hard and unpleasant, but they kept coming back because they remembered one thing: the victim could not speak, but their body was perhaps the greatest clue to finding their killer or, in this case, to understanding how they’d come to find themselves in such a vulnerable position.Yet again, I have been captivated from the very first page and to say I have been gripped throughout would be a massive understatement. Nors ir tiriami du nusikaltimai, nei vienas nei kitas iki galo nesudomino, trūko intrigos, kažkokio kabliuko, dėl kurio knietėtų greičiau sužinot kas ir kodėl taip elgiasi. She studied undergraduate and postgraduate Law at King’s College, University of London and then abroad in Paris and Florence.

I wouldn't want to help support someone who feels the need to mention in every book their anti God, conservative opinions.

The sub plot that Jack and Mel investigated was a bit thin and not woven into the main story as much as usual. In Newcastle a racist group is targeting religious centres, mosques, synagogues and individuals, leaving behind a very striking symbol. The plot is particularly interesting with an unusual background set in the wild lands of the Northumberland National Park. I’ve stuck with them with all except about two but this is just a complete rip-off , it’s more like a short story.This service is entirely free, and your details will never be shared with any third parties whatsoever. yra tiriami ir masyvūs išpuoliai, kuomet nusikaltėliai niekina istorinės svarbos objektus, pastatus, maldos namus ir ant sienų palieka keistus piešinius.

Matyt, sunku neišsikvėpti tiek kuriant apie tą patį veikėją ir jo tiriamus nusikaltimus, nes būtent tokia man ši knyga pasirodė - šiek tiek suskubėta, šiek tiek "tas pats per tą patį", šiek tiek nuobodi.

Sign up to the LJ Ross Book Club to receive the latest book updates and exclusive content directly from LJ. now we are a few in, they seem very brief and whilst the plots are still good , I didnt find this as convincing and they are way briefer than they were. Rushed and short it is not a patch on the standard I have come to expect of LJ Ross, the different stories feel unrelated and tension is lacking. Whilst I am delighted that new episodes of DCI Ryan's escapades are coming thick and fast, I do think that perhaps the books are now beginning to suffer.

What I meanis that there're two diferent crimes and we get to know who did one, but the other is a complete mystery! She enjoys reading all manner of books, painting, travelling and spending time with family and friends. I learned about the early Bronze Age Stone Circle at Duddo and although I live in Northumberland, I had never heard of it (oops! How in the world did a lone female end up running through the middle of the moors on a huge Army training base?

Just like Ryan, the author shows compassion for the characters but not because of their race or backstory but because they are human beings (and, in one case, canine).As always, there is a real sense of camaraderie and humour in the investigative team, with some personal backstories to add a sense of humanity. As usual, there are several mysteries and they are all equally fascinating and one of the stories (finding redemption through the love for an animal) really touched me. Murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunnit set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape.
