The Bookseller magazine has reported on Louise having topped the ‘Most Read’ and ‘Most Sold’ fiction charts, and she has garnered an army of loyal fans who love her atmospheric and addictive storytelling. You give a wonderful description of the area and we will be visiting soon while I await the next instalment. The death of one of the locals isn’t as clear cut as everyone seems to think and it’s great seeing the team working together as the case gets more twisted and complicated. I have a feeling all will be revealed in the next one, which I will still read as I am invested in the characters now.

They seem to be used for such different purposes and, again, they broke my focus because they were so unnecessary and confusing.

Weirdly, Ross seemed more interested in mocking environmental activists and veganism, which seem to be less about the characters' opinions and more about Ross's own thoughts on these matters.I count down the days each and every time I know a new book in this series is coming out and this was not exception! And it is then moved to the future, when the first murder happens early in the book and the second soon after. Another masterpiece, full of suspense and I’m super excited for the next book and what comes next with these characters and of course some more murders to solve! Accusations abound in the small, close-knit community, and 'old' religions spar against 'new' while fear runs like wildfire through the streets. As I said, these are all there, but they seem to be somewhat eclipsed - or at least interrupted - by references to tedious aspects of modern life.

Her eleventh novel, The Infirmary, is a prequel story to the DCI Ryan series and is available as a major Audible Originals audio-drama starring Tom Bateman, Kevin Whately, Bertie Carvel, Hermione Norris and Alun Armstrong. In this instalment we see the ongoing development of the relationships between Ryan and Anna, Frank and Denise and Mel and Jack. Everything is complicated by demonstrations about fracting in the area, as well as lack of authopsy for a long while in the book.The banter between Ryan and Frank as well as Franks forced dieting adds some great humor with the case gripping the reader and have them trying to solve it before they do. Her eleventh novel, "The Infirmary", is a prequel story and is also available as a major Audible Originals audio-drama starring Tom Bateman, Kevin Whately, Bertie Carvel, Hermione Norris and Alun Armstrong.

I always enjoy the author’s descriptive writing in this series, I like to take myself off to these wonderful parts of Northumberland in my mind. The question is whether the problems with the village's water supply caused his death and did Eco-protestor kill himself because he felt guilty for Fred's death? There were several long and very didactic paragraphs about (supposedly) the characters opinions on these topics. To put it mildly, after reading what seemed to be several pages of self-justification and self-congratulation, I was pretty sure that the author must self-publish.

With the water at Lady’s Well having turned red and the residents being affected after drinking some of the water, Ryan realises pretty quickly that all is not right. This is probably a matter of personal taste, but I disliked the constant references to Trump, Liz Truss, TikTok, influencers, etc. So many phrases that just grated because yes, they do the job, but isn't there a fresher way to say them? I absolutely love this series, and Northumbria, England is one area of England which I have not visited very often, but these characters are so real to me, I feel that they are my friends.

He was belligerent, bellicose, and totally contrary, but did someone dislike him to the point they would want to kill him? She studied undergraduate and postgraduate Law at King’s College, University of London and then abroad in Paris and Florence.Fred Humble is a cantankerous man with no friends so when he is found dead in his cottage in Holystone no-one mourns him. She needs to find herself again, and seeks help from an unlikely source, but she's given leave to deal with her feelings. With Denise threatening anyone and everyone in the building to not let Frank have any treats as he’s supposed to be on a diet, the wily ways of the two of them is something to behold. There's a few suspects, but the main one is found dead, slightly turning the investigation on it's head. I would have liked to hear more about the Well, the village of Holystone, The ancient Pagan and Christian past, and the surrounding landscape.
