Description

From the international number one best-selling author of the DCI Ryan mysteries. 

Hysteria is the second instalment in Ross' brand-new Dr Alex Gregory series, narrated by actor Hugh Dancy.

Recently returned from his last case in Ireland, elite forensic psychologist and criminal profiler Dr Alexander Gregory receives a call from the French police that he can’t ignore. It’s Paris fashion week, and some of the world’s most beautiful women are turning up dead, their faces slashed in a series of frenzied attacks while the world’s press looks on. 

Amidst the carnage, one victim has survived, but she’s too traumatised to talk. Without her help, the police are powerless to stop the killer before he strikes again - can Gregory unlock the secrets of her mind before it’s too late? Murder and mystery are peppered with dark humour in this fast-paced thriller set in a spectacular Parisian landscape.

Amazing story and narration

Alexander is an intriguing protagonist and I was very excited to read the continuation of his story from Imposter. The story is suspenseful and well-written. I did not expect the twist at all and I can’t wait for the next book!

Hugh Dancy is a fantastic narrator. Top notch narration, wonderful portrayal of each distinct character along with his mastery of different accents make this series a very enjoyable listen.

Disappointed

The first few chapters of the book seem to be just filler and self-serving as the author went back-and-forth from French to English we’re very glad that he knows how to speak French but really didn’t do much to further the story it wasn’t till closer to the halfway mark that it became more about the murder victim and the procedures which saved the novel I think but disappointed in this book by Ross

Hysteria

As usual I found this book to be excellent, slowly getting used to the new Alex Gregory, as I am a staunch fan of DC Ryan. I am sure I will get to love him as well. The story was excellent and gives an insight into the minds of split personalities. Hope to read many more books, just please don't give up on DCI Ryan. The narration was excellent.

Don't miss this one!

I loved the interplay between Alexander Gregory and the French Police officer. Very touching relationship being rolled out and developed with his mentor. Great story lines with rich layers of differing relationships makes the protagonist a 3D personality.
Great to have been given an insight into his vulnerabilities so that we can work our minds around figuring out the effect of each new character in the upcoming stories.
I am really excited to see what LJ Ross has for us next.
If she keeps this up she is going to make heself a classic.

I dont speak French!

I love Louise Ross's books. But very disappointed in this one. I have never been to France nor do I know the language at all. So after 15 minutes of struggling I was going to give up. But I decided to give it a little more time. Sorry, I am going to return it as I cant get past trying to understand any of the references to geography or the french legal system. Ruined the book for me.

Good listening..

Great book! Alex Gregory was in Paris to give a speech when he was asked to help solve an attempted murder, and then a murder.

He did meet a girl that he got involved with, but his guilt is so strong he refused to let it go anywhere. And speaking of guilt, I’m getting tired of this guilt-trip he’s been on in the beginning of this new series. If this continues, I will definitely quit reading the Alex Gregory books. I’ve listened to all the DCI Ryan stories, all 14 of them, and never had to suffer through Ryan suffering through all kinds of guilt and I don’t want to do it in this series.

There was no romance or sex and no swearing.

As to the narration: Hugh Dancy is a good narrator, both his voices and his reading emotions.
