Publisher's Summary

The past never stays buried for long....

Detective Chief Inspector Ryan believes he has put his turbulent history behind him. Then, in the early hours of the summer solstice, the skeleton of a young woman is found inside the Roman Wall at Sycamore Gap. She has lain undiscovered for 10 years, and it is Ryan's job to piece together her past.

Enquiry lines cross and merge as Ryan is forced to face his own demons and enter into a deadly game of cat and mouse with a killer who seems unstoppable. Murder and mystery are peppered with a sprinkling of romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunnit set amidst the spectacular scenery of Hadrian's Wall country in Northumberland.

Just Keeps Drawing Me In

Do yourselves a favour and read/listen to this series. Each novel presents its own elegant mystery, while retaining a compelling thread of subplots that develop the characters and promise continued adventures.

The macabre of Inspector Morse, the team humour and camaraderie of Inspector Frost blended with the cozy stability of Midsomer Murders. Love this series, love this writer.

Totally engaging

LJ Ross has created this wonderfully intriguing series delving into the myths of the dark cultural landscape. There are hints and red herrings galore that the lover of murder mystery can explore & challenge themselves to solve before DI Ryan & his team. The excellent narration ups the anti on excitement and fear.

Boring

Any additional comments?

After listening to book 1 of this series, I found this book too similar and it quickly became very boring.
