The Rock: A DCI Ryan Mystery (The DCI Ryan Mysteries Book 18)
by LJ Ross
The Rock is another awesome addition to this excellent series! I have LOVED it! I can’t recommend it highly enough. Honestly, if you haven’t read these books yet you are seriously missing out.
This book is set in a beautiful location. I have been lucky enough to visit once whilst visiting friends in Sunderland and I’m looking forward to being back in that neck of the woods again soon. I have my map ready! 😉
I love catching up with Ryan and the team. I love how their personal stories and relationships have developed throughout the series. I love Ryan’s adoration of Anna and their daughter. I can understand him being concerned about the danger to his family because of his high-profile job and I love that Anna understands this but supports him fully and encourages him to continue doing what he seems to have been born to do.
The case the team are faced with this time is nothing short of horrifying. People trafficking is just horrendous and it’s terrifying to think how common a problem it probably is in the real world. I can’t even begin to imagine what these women must go through at the hands of these ba*tards. There are some sick people in this world!
There is a lot going on throughout this story. It is fast paced, intense, and features some quite inspirational characters. So full of suspense, emotion, and uncertainty. Heart-breaking but also heart-warming at times. It just ticks all the boxes. I was practically glued to my kindle.
Frank made me giggle a lot too, as he always does. He’s a ray of sunshine in their all too often dark world.
Another easy five stars for me!
