I absolutely LOVE this series and Borderlands is another excellent instalment! I cannot recommend it highly enough. Yet again, I have been captivated from the very first page and to say I have been gripped throughout would be a massive understatement.

If you have read any of my reviews for the previous books in this series, you will know how highly I rate them. Whenever LJ Ross has a new release I confidently and excitedly click the pre-order link without even having to read the blurb because I know I am in for a treat as soon as I get the chance to read it! I feel totally blessed that LJ Ross often sends me an early copy. I feel honoured to be able to read the books prior to publication. Imposter is my next read! ๐Ÿ˜Š

In Borderlands Ryan, Phillips and the team are faced with investigating the shooting of a woman during a scheduled army training exercise and a group of extremists who are targeting local religious organisations. As always, nothing is straight forward or without an element of danger and this makes for an exciting, fast-paced read.

There are some scary characters in this story, one who particularly made my skin scrawl.

I really felt for the homeless soldier. What heโ€™s gone through and continues to go through is just heart-breaking. No-one should be living on the streets in this day, and age. Least of all our veterans. I am married to one and Iโ€™m an extremely proud wifey. Itโ€™s often so difficult for them to adjust to civilian life and they should be afforded any and all the support they might need.

I love the main characters in this series and enjoy how their relationships develop throughout each book.

There is a feelgood aspect to this book which I really enjoyed also. As the author herself says (in a much more eloquent way than me!), amongst all the bad stuff going on in this world there are many people doing a little bit of good in their own little way. This helps to restore my faith in humankind.

Without a doubt another five star read!

I canโ€™t wait for Ryanโ€™s Christmas!


New to this series? Start here…..


happy reading ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Hi
        I love DCI Ryan and all his friends. I am up to date, having finished The Shrine, I am now looking forward to L J Rossโ€™s next book which I expect will be extremely thrilling. Ryanโ€™s โ€œintuitionโ€ is always spot on, he has approached his Dad who has a perfect understanding of his son and his Dad has promised to keep Anna and baby safe!
        I must also say that Jonathan Keeble is the perfect narrator and he is one of my draw cards! Long may the association continue!
        Please, letโ€™s have the next book very soon on Kindle and Audible!!!
