Publisher's Summary

From the number one international best-selling author of Holy Island and Impostor

After a busy year fighting crime, DCI Ryan and his team of murder detectives are enjoying a festive season of goodwill, mulled wine and, in the case of DS Phillips, a stottie cake or two - that is, until a freak snowstorm forces their car off the main road and into the remote heart of Northumberland. Their Christmas spirit is soon tested when they’re forced to find shelter inside England’s most haunted castle, where they’re the uninvited guests at a ‘Candlelit Ghost Hunt’. It’s all fun and games - until one of the guests is murdered. It seems no mortal hand could have committed the crime, so Ryan and co. must face the spectres living inside the castle walls to uncover the grisly truth, before another ghost joins their number.... 

Murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunnit set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape.

Another enjoyable DCI Ryan read from LJ Ross

It’s all been said before. LJ Ross is a gifted writer/storyteller. Ryan’s Christmas is a purely entertaining story to read.

Ryan's Christmas

I am an addict of Dc Ryan's series and this was no exception, I stayed up to 1am to finish it, loved the story, but hated that it ended so soon, just wanted it to go on forever. Another fantastic book, with excellent ending. Love the narration.

Turned into a Merry Christmas for Ryan & Anna..


I love the DCI Ryan Mysteries. The was the 15th one and they can’t come out fast enough for me. And, oddly enough, I hate books about heroes having wives. But, not so this time. I adore Anna, his wife. She the perfect wife for Ryan. I also adore MacKenzie and her husband Phillips, and now their soon-to-be adopted daughter, Samantha.

This was about 2 separate murders to be solved while being snowed in at a castle, with 6 or 7 other guests and employees.

There was no sex in this and no swearing to speak of.

As to the narration: Crazy, but Jonathan Keeble narrated the last book I just listened to and he’s simply awesome.

Ryan's christmas

If these books get much shorter I won't be buying. It was like agatha Christies orient express. Not as good as the previous books

lovely to hear old friends ..BUT

the villan was obvious as soon as you met him, the reason for the first murder not guessable but you knew he was linked. A lovely ref herring to the second murder with so many nods to The Orient Express plot. But somehow it wasn't the best outing if Ryan and co. The good news is lovely to hear but also made clear far too soon. It was great to hear the familiar voices but the plot setting far fetched and then the problems so trite. Still I look forward to the next book, with fingers crossed that there will be a return to form

Waiting ages for this book to come out 🤗

Not disappointed with the book at all, it had a difference to the other books written by Louise. Hope we don't have to wait too long for the next book which in paperback is already released The Shrine.

Reduced Ryan

This was more of a novella than a novel, a touch on the light side. I hope L J Ross is going to write some more in the vein of her previous novels, with plots that develop over time. Love the characters and enjoy the glimpses into their home life which she continues to interweave for us. But crime stories need a bit more action than this one offers and subplots that keep one guessing. I love listening to the series but felt a bit short changed by this one.
