Publisher's Summary

From the International number one best-selling author of the DCI Ryan Mysteries.

A Best Audiobook- Fiction Finalist at the New York Festivals Radio Awards .

Impostor, is the first instalment in Ross's brand new Dr Alex Gregory series, narrated by actor Hugh Dancy.

After an elite criminal profiling unit is shut down amid a storm of scandal and mismanagement, only one person emerges unscathed. Forensic psychiatrist, Doctor Alexander Gregory, has a reputation for being able to step inside the darkest minds to uncover whatever secrets lie hidden there and, soon enough, he finds himself drawn into the murky world of murder investigation. In the beautiful hills of County Mayo, Ireland, a killer is on the loose. Panic has a stranglehold on its rural community, and the Garda are running out of time. Gregory has sworn to follow a quiet life but, when the call comes, can he refuse to help their desperate search for justice?

Murder and mystery are peppered with dark humour in this fast-paced thriller set amidst the spectacular Irish landscape.

Brilliant narration

Entertaining story, awash with red herrings and misdirection, elevated by the excellent narration. Hugh Dancy inhabits the various characters seamlessly.

Excellent story Excellent Narrator

The story is intriguing, with an excellent blending of the “people” in the story, and a very mysterious ending. The Narrator was excellent , voicing all the different “people “in the book superbly.

A well paced psychological “whodunnit” masterfully narrated

Having read the reviews of this audiobook prior to selecting it, I did mot have overly high expectations of it. I would agree that this story might be a bit “thin” in places. However, I found a number of the main characters personable and quite intriguing. The story held my attention to the end.
For me this story falls into the category of light holiday reading. Interesting, involving but not overly demanding or challenging.
That said, the narration of this story was absolutely superb, moving seamlessly between narration & distinctive voice characterisation. It is likely that I will listen to others in this series to find out more about Dr Alex Gregory if they are also narrated by Hugh Dancy.

Good Listening!

I guessed the killer very early on which annoyed rather than pleased me. The rest of the tale just validated my suspicions.
Maybe I listened to a few too many in this genre.
