I have absolutely LOVED the Audible Original Drama version of The Infirmary!
This is book eleven in the DCI Ryan series, but is a prequel. It works really well at this point in the series having read all of the previous ten books, and loved them all, but I’m sure it will be enjoyed by anyone new to the series by way of introduction to the characters.
I’m sure I would have loved the Kindle version also, but listening to it with all of the character’s having their own voice made it really come to life. It was like listening to a TV crime drama. Each voice suited the character perfectly, in my opinion, especially Phillips! He sounds exactly as I had imagined him to and he really does make me giggle at times. Ryan sounds as suave and authoritative as expected. I was totally immersed in their world for a few wonderfully entertaining hours. I listened right to the end last night and only then did I notice the time and realise that I had to be up for work this morning!
Being a prequel, the story itself naturally takes us back to before Holy Island and how Ryan comes to be there after the death of his sister. It isn’t an easy read/listen as there are some quite graphic descriptions of the murders committed, as in the rest of the series, and I have to say that the voice of the murderer when taunting his victims is really, really creepy!
Brilliantly written, as always with L J Ross. I can’t wait to read The Moor.
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.
