About the author
LJ Ross is an international bestselling author, best known for creating atmospheric mystery and thriller novels, including the DCI Ryan series of Northumbrian murder mysteries which have sold over four million copies worldwide.
I love the new Alexander Gregory book. In a clever plot LJ Ross forces the psychological profiler to face some of his past demons, as we see Gregory put in an impossible position, where looking at his painful past and the possibility of a future, different from the own he has forged may become a reality.
Alexander Gregory is a complex creation, brought to life skilfully from the pen of LJ Ross.
I love that he’s being unwrapped layer by layer and he is a compelling character.
This book had me on the edge of my seat reading it. It was the type of book I love, in the I will not sleep until I know what happens and if everything works out, or doesn’t. As in life the appeal of the books of LJ Ross lies in her ability to have characters who have bad things happen and things aren’t always as they seem. Her writing just gets better and better.
