Description

Introducing a new multicast drama by LJ Ross, the author of the international number one best-selling series the DCI Ryan mysteries. 

There's a serial killer targeting the streets of Newcastle, seemingly picking his victims at random but subjecting them all to the same torturous end. When the Chief Inspector on the case goes missing, it falls on DCI Ryan to track down the man who is brutally murdering women and goading the police to 'catch me if you can'. 

As everyone becomes a suspect, Ryan and his team get drawn further and further into the case, but for Ryan the nightmare gets closer to home than he could ever have imagined. 

This Audible Original drama stars Tom Bateman (Murder on the Orient Express, Jekyll & Hyde, Snatched), Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster, Les Misérables), Hermione Norris (Spooks, Cold Feet) and Kevin Whately (Lewis, Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) and is a prequel to the DCI Ryan series.

Starring: Alun Armstrong, Rachel Atkins, Tom Bateman, Mark Bazeley, Anna Bolton, Bertie Carvel, Stephen Critchlow, Vicki Davids, Reece Dinsdale, Harriet Ghost, Frances Jeater, Jack Lloyd, Dean Logan, Daniel Matthew Lemon, Roger May, Hermione Norris, Kate Okello, Colleen Prendergast, Shaun Prendergast, Nicholas Rowe, David Seddon, Marlene Sidaway, Tom Slatter, Fiona Victory, Lauren Waine, Kevin Whately and Hannah Wood

Audible member reviews

“I was going to listen to a bit whilst I swept and cleaned the floors and then I had work to do that just couldn't wait any more. I am now the proud owner of the cleanest floor in the UK, and possibly the world! I just couldn't stop, it's a totally gripping and absorbing dramatisation. It was fascinating listening, especially as a long standing fan of LJ Ross' DCI Ryan series, and the idea of giving listeners the back story to how the team came together is inspired. A standing ovation for The Infirmary.” – Melanie, Audible member

“If, like me, you are a DCI Ryan fan then you will already know what this story is about. If you haven't yet met DCI Ryan and his crew then you are in for a treat as this starts the series off in the most chilling of ways. I could feel the goose bumps rising, my skin crawling as you got that absolute detachment, especially from Bertie Carvel as he divulged the killer's thoughts to the listener. With all the thrills and spills of your favourite DCI Ryan novels, brought to life by a stellar cast, this book will hook you from the action filled opening, through the story's dark and chilling heart, to its sad but inevitable conclusion.” – Jen, Audible member

“If you haven't read any DCI Ryan before, you are in for such a treat, and if you have, you are going to LOVE how this brings those much-loved characters completely to life. This Audible Original takes us back to the beginning, and we come to understand how and why Ryan ended up on Holy Island in Book One. With the cast of wonderful characters: Frank, Denise, Jack and the return of Arthur Griegson (superbly played by Alun Armstrong - one of my favourite actors), Ryan is hunting down The Hacker - the killer that has haunted him throughout the series so far. Bertie Carvel stood out for me: a fantastic, spine-chilling performance as the serial killer that has turned Newcastle into a ghost town. Oh, my skin crawled! So many great performances, and I was thrilled to hear genuine North East actors and accents which, along with the music and sound effects, brought authenticity to the whole story. Wonderful stuff.” – Nicky, Audible member

The Infirmary

Wow, what a story, so glad I got it as it made the whole DCI Ryan series seem even more real. I have grown to love them and will continue to enjoy them, always eagerly waiting for the next. The Narration was excellent, a bit of getting used to the action and background noises, but loved it by the end. Thank you to all.

Too Much!

I always enjoy the DCI Ryan books by LJ Ross. Their usual narrator, Jonathan Keeble, makes them easy to listen to and does a great job distinguishing the characters from one another. But this radio-like drama was just too much. Between the cheesy dramatic music, background voices, noises and sound effects, I could not get through the 2nd chapter and gave up - which is why I didn't rate the story. If you are used to plain and simple audiobooks and not overacted, over-dubbed dramas, I can't recommend this.

Radio Drama

I immensely enjoyed listening to the other LJ Ross books on audio as narrated by Jonathan Keeble. Unfortunately this story has an ensemble cast and, because of its various narrators, background sound effects, and overly dramatized music and direction, it's not at all enjoyable. Gory details are glorified rather than clever writing with bits of humorous dialogue. The voices thoughtfully created by Keeble's entertaining narration is sorely missed. I'd skip this title if you listened to the other books in the series. In fact, I'd skip it altogether.

Another masterpiece from my favourite author

I did find it strange listening on audible to the very beginning of all the books; I keep wondering how this came about. However not to be disappointed, this once again kept me spellbound and even brought me to tears at the end. Now just waiting for the next brilliant read!

Mesmerizing

As an American who lived for three & a half years in England's northeast, it was great to be reminded of places I had been and to hear those familiar accents. As someone who loves gripping stories, it was mesmerizing to experience the complexity of this plot. In addition, the multiple voices and sound effects added so much depth to the experience of hearing this story; the effect was to draw me into the story and make it so very real. My only criticism is the author employed elements to mislead the reader that seemed quite unlikely and manipulative in hindsight, that is, after the reader knew the identity of the killer. However, I would encourage all lovers of detective mysteries to experience this audible drama. I loved it.

Good story. I didn’t care for the dramatization

First of all, I love this series. LJ Ross has created great characters and her stories are wonderful.

However, I really didn’t care for the dramatization of this story. I don’t care for multiple narrators to begin with and I found this production a bit over-the-top.

The story was good and not as horrid as I anticipated, knowing how it was going to end.

I’ve enjoyed the previous audiobooks in this series a great deal and I’m anxiously awaiting the next one. Hopefully, there’ll just be a single narrator.

Great book – a little over produced dramatization.

A classic DCI Ryan! The narrators Were fabulous, however I felt the background and ambient Sounds were ever so slightly intrusive. It could be me and I am just not used to the format.

dramatization diminish the quality of the story

Why change the winning team with J. Keeble as narrator in a unabridged reading? He is so much better in create a perfect atmosphere. The sound effects disturbes the story which is already broken in the process of dramatization. The part where the victim speaks is rather full of bloodthirsty effects. The speakers are OK but this does not rescue the case. Please don't do it again.
