Description

The hunter becomes the hunted....

When a man is found dead at the remote church of Heavenfield, DCI Ryan is the only other person for miles around. The police have no weapon, no motive and no other suspects.

Already suspended from Northumbria CID, Ryan must fight to clear his name. But soon more than his career is at stake when prominent members of the mysterious Circle begin to die.

Somebody wants Ryan's name to be next on the coroner's list, and to survive he must unmask the devil who walks among them - before it is too late. Unfortunately for Ryan, the devil looks just like everybody else....

Murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunnit from LJ Ross, set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape.

Hope to see more of Ryan, Phillips and the others

Jonathan Keeble makes the characters memorable. Hope L J Ross is writing about new adventure of these characters.

Spoilers, maybe.. but I doubt it..



This one started with a man being killed and Ryan being accused of killing him. That was a good start, I thought. And, wow, everything just went crazy in this book: Gregson going after Ryan, trying to get him thrown off the force, and the deal with Gregson’s wife, 2 prison/hospital deaths while they were already looking into another killer’s death.

And if some of you don’t know what I’m talking about and think I’m giving up spoilers I’m not, for those of you who read the first two books. For those who didn’t you might be lost. This was really a fascinating series.

It was just fabulous getting to know Ryan and Anna, and watching them fall in love. Loved Phillips and MacKenzie, and I absolutely love Phillips’s ties, what a quirky guy he was with his ties. Really liked Jack but I wasn’t really sure about him in the beginning. And, wow, wow, wow, what a trip that Jane was. She had a god-like attitude and thought the immediate world would soon be kneeling at her feet. Every one of these “Master’s” were totally insane killers, thinking they were doing Satan’s work. Every time one Master died another would take his place, until Jane was given the position as High PriestESS, after years of there being only Priests.

This was a truly great series and I’m sorry the story of “The Circle” had to end. But, boy, what an ending.

Again there was no sex in this book, not even a hint of it, but there was love and affection and that’s all I can ask for.

The was swearing and the F-bomb was used 12 times.

As to the narration: Again the narrator did a great job with his emotions while reading and the men had wonderful voices but the women’s voices still sucked, just like they did in the first two books. However, even with the women’s voices I’d still listen to the narrator again.

With the books being free with KU and the audibles only being $1.99 you really can’t go wrong.

The best of the series so far

Heavenfield is the third book featuring DCI Ryan and follows on from the events in Holy Island and Sycamore Gap. These have been getting better and better. This one is definitely my favorite. The history that is weaved into the story and the atmospheric settings in the North East of England combined with the fast paced, clever plot and the fantastic characters made this an excellent crime thriller. I would love to see Ryan, Anna, MacKenzie and Phillips investigating other cases in the future.These characters have really grown on me and it is nice to follow how they are developing with each book.
The narration by Jonathan Keeble is absolutely fantastic. He kills it with the different accents and I've been super impressed how consistent the different characters' voices have been across all three books. He has really brought these characters to life for me.
I would recommend the entire trilogy to all fans of fast-paced crime thrillers with believable characters.

Really enjoyed this

This is the third book in the DCI Ryan series . They need to be read in order because of the story arc which starts in book 1 . I think the writing from this new author has improved and she has developed the characters well and now by book 3 has edited out some of the extraneous descriptions and brooding looks from the first books. For those who insist on strict police procedurals this may not be for you. However these books are set in the area I grew up in which just added to my enjoyment and the narrator was excellent . I look forward to more from LJ Ross

Characters, chemistry, narration - great.

These books keep getting better. I particularly enjoy the dialogue. Maybe it's the way Jonathan Keeble reads it but the dialogue seems totally accurate and not stilted.

The story was interesting with several threads unraveling at the same time. It kept my interest far too late into the night.
