Sycamore Gap Reviews
This is the second book in the DCI Ryan series and another corker of a read.
This has to be one of the best settings for a crime series. There is so much history as well as stunning views and even though there are plenty of murders that occur, that certainly didn't put me off wanting to move there. If anything I thought that at least house prices would be cheap with such a high death rate!
Ryan is just starting to move on with his life with a little help from the lovely Anna. Unfortunately when a ...more
Magic and Mayhem, in Sycamore Gap, just what DCI Ryan needs. When the skeleton of a young woman is discovered in a wall on the morning, on.the Summer Solstice,, a murder investigation is required. The skeleton has been hidden there for at least ten years, and the questions are :Who is she, how did she die, why and who the hell commited the murder and is it someone local.
Soon Ryan is getting close, and his life is in danger, from a ruthless killer, who will stop at nothing to stop him from disc ...more
A woman's body is found buried in Hadrian's Wall. It is the body of Amy Llewelyn who went missing 10 years ago. DCI Ryan and his team recognise the girl as her photo was amongst the possessions of the man responsible for the deaths in the first book in the series. However, when another body is found which was very recently killed the team realise that he couldn't have been responsible.
This book continues the storyline which begins in the first book, of which we are privy to much more informatio ...more
Read the first few pages and realised it was going to be as bad as the first book so found something else to read
A body stuffed in a gap ten years ago points Ryan to his sister’s killer, but how? He’s in prison.
LJ Ross has given us another in her excellent series about the handsome, troubled detective who is driven to find the killer who butchered his sister in front of his eyes.
DCI Ryan and his now girlfriend, Anna, were introduced to us in Holy Island: A DCI Ryan Mystery. Both books are self-contained mysteries (in case you stumble on the second one first), but it’s satisfying to watch the character ...more
For those of you that have been wondering why I have been quiet on social media recently, Is because I have been devouring my way through this flawless series of books.Having read Holy Island and hearing that LJ Ross has a fourth book coming out, I felt it was time to play catch up having heard so many rave reviews. And OMG what a series this is, I have read them more or less back to back. And thought it would be easier to write one review for the first three books.
What can I say but this serie ...more
The DCI Ryan #2 is a great follow up story to the first, entitled Holy Island. I think LJ Ross is a talented writer who creates well rounded characters, both good and bad and plenty of tension in her stories. I am not usually drawn to Detective series, but I confess that as I grew up in the North East of England my heart still resides there, and this series transports me back to so many familiar locations. As a teenager I enjoyed many school hiking trips around the area of Hadrian's Wall, and fe ...more
I finished this late last night (23rd December) and now I can't wait to start Heavenfield (The DCI Ryan mysteries Book 3).
Having read and loved Holy Island (The DCI Ryan mysteries Book 1) I was very much looking forward to reading Sycamore Gap.
DCI Ryan is the most intriguing character and I have thoroughly enjoyed catching up with him and his team again.
When the 10 year old remains of a young woman are found at Sycamore Gap DCI Ryan and his team are faced with the challenge of finding out who h ...more
