Description

Hell has unleashed a demon - and he's coming for you....

Detective Chief Inspector Ryan's worst nightmare has just become a reality. Notorious serial killer The Hacker has escaped prison and kidnapped one of his best detectives from her own home. His brutality is the stuff of legend - Ryan lost his sister and nearly his own life bringing the man to justice first time around. Can Ryan do it again to save his friend?

There's a nationwide manhunt underway but the trail has gone cold and fear spreads like a virus. Ryan and his team must find The Hacker before he takes another life - but are they too late?

The clock is ticking....

Murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunit set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape.

Awesome read and Awesome narration..

So, 5th book in the series and they just get better and better but I hated it because book 4 was a cliffhanger and I read it 9/2/16 and had to wait all this time to read the next. That wouldn’t be so bad if I hadn’t read 50 or 60+ books in between then and now. That’s why I hate cliffhangers and I wouldn’t have read book 4 if I’d known it was one.

However, I’m glad I did read this. It was awesome. Although, Keir is just so sick and what he does to people is beyond gruesome. And I doubt it has to be described in such detail. Poor MacKenzie was his prisoner through the whole book and he just loved to play with her. He didn’t rape her or anything like that but every time you turned around he reminded her he could kill her any time he wanted to. And once he let her escape, only to be watching her from the roof with a rifle aimed at her. He loved his mind games.

Here’s my only problem with the book: A word was found on Beth’s palm that said “Invictus.” When Lowerson asks what it meant the BOOK said “unvanquished,” but the READER said “I remain.” And that happened 3 times. Then when “Maneo” was written in with the entrails of 2 victims in was READ as “unvanquished” but the BOOK said “I remain.” The whole thing was crazy and needs to be fixed.

As with every book I loved the secondary characters: Anna, Lowerson, Phillips, and MacKenzie. They were all terrific.

WOW! What an ending! I loved it! With 3 guns aimed you just don't know who it was that pulled the trigger, or if that all did at once. Spectacular ending.

There was no sex in this book but the romantic feelings between Ryan and Anna was so sweet. And the F-bomb was used 2 times.

As to the narrator: Jonathan Keeble was wonderful. His voices from book to book are exactly the same, Ryan’s was sexy as hell and Phillips’s was gruff and raspy and Lowerson sounded as young as he was supposed to and Keir Edwards sounded as crazy as he was supposed to be. And he read with great emotion, too. And the women sounded just as they should.

Suspenseful and Gratifying Read

I'm an avid LJ Ross fan. I became such for one reason; she's a master storyteller. High Force is a well-told well-crafted story. Don't miss it! One caveat, read her first four books first. Jonathan Keeble is an amazing narrator and his performances in all of LJ's books captivates.

DCI Ryan Mystery


I liked this audiobook because of the tension the author creates & how the characters have evolved since the 1st book in the series. The listener learns more about who DCI Ryan is & he is less starchy than in the previous books in the series. I would not recommend this story for anyone who is very sensitive to violence because of the nature of the murderer & the way he murders his victims. I especially like that the author creates women who are competent, intelligent, & strong (both physically & mentally). I think the narrator does a great job & reads as if he is actually watching what is happening, his voice heightening the tension & action. I really like British detective stories & have enjoyed this series.

Fantastic!

This was fantastic! There's one scene that was so suspenseful I almost cried out in fear. This was very well done. This series does indeed get better and better.

As usual, the narration was perfect.

An old nemesis returns and no one is safe. Ryan and Frank - and Anna - work to solve this. We already know who did it but it's a race to find him. Good stuff!

I didn't want to leave my car

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend that if possible the books are read in order.
They build and get better as the series moves along.

What was one of the most memorable moments of High Force?

Don't want to spoil the plot but when the title makes more sense there is a really nail biting few "pages" that light up the entire book.

Which scene was your favorite?

Got to be the High Force !!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Not cry!
However I was feeling deep concern about the policemen and women that over the series I feel that I have come to know, like and care for.

Any additional comments?

I hope that this isn't the end and that Ryan will be back with Frank tagging along.

Brilliantly written - high suspense throughout

Würden Sie High Force noch mal anhören? Warum?

ja, mit ein paar Monaten Abstand. Man vergisst die Details und hört sie das zweite Mal besser!
