In a way, disappointing

I listened to the audiobook (great narration, by the way) and when I saw that I had 25 minutes left I thought sure there was a Part 2 to the download. What I found out is that there's a Part 2 to this book (or so it seems.)

I love this series and I was super excited that my pre-order for this book came a day early. How wonderful! But now that I've finished it I feel that it was only half a book. So many storylines were left unresolved. I understand that things like that happen in a series but this left almost ALL the storylines open. The ending disappointed. The characters did not.

I hate being let down by a book I was anxiously awaiting. Let's hope there's not a long wait for the "second part" of this book.

It Just Stops

I love this series, and I enjoyed this book until it just ended without resolution and with this whole Lucas thing hanging out there. I was afraid the Lucas issue would drag on, but not the primary murder investigation. So now we have two villains in play. I know the earlier books had some of this, but not the maliciously petty situation that is Lucas. Next book either resolves these or I am done. I need good endings. Otherwise, I could read a newspaper.

Compelling DCI Ryan mystery...

Another great murder/mystery from LJ Ross, and the continuation of the DCI Ryan Series.
It was really interesting to see the status quo of the murder investigation team shaken up - with the introduction of Lucas, and clearly this is going to form an interesting plot line for future instalments. Equally clear is the further involvement of a new, shrewd adversary for Ryan to pit himself against.
The DCI Ryan Series is superbly enjoyable, and anyone who enjoys the murder/mystery genre will find these difficult to put down.
I'd recommend listening to the series in order, as much of the storyline benefits from prior knowledge, though LJ Ross does do a good job of succinctly filling in as the book progresses.
Super narration once again from Jonathan Keeble. Can't wait for the next one....!

Wonderful as usual.

One of my favourite new authors, with some of my favourite new characters, read by the best narrator on Audible. Genius stuff. Although the quicker Lucas gets found out the better - she’s spoiling my vibe!

Unfairly short.

Any additional comments?

I do like the writing by LJ Ross and the great group of characters that inhabit her stories. My only complaint is that the recordings aren't long enough. For the same price I can listen to 11-15 hours worth of amazing high quality stories by, for example, Stuart McBride or Peter May which are obviously much better value for money. I feel Cragside and Dark Skies should have been one book and like others, I too feel somewhat cheated that the "Jen Lucas" situation has obviously been dragged out to fill goodness knows how many more books. It also seems like we have an almost identical second "Hacker" in the making. Thought that horse had already bolted !! Success it seems spawns a bit of arrogance and disregard for the reading ( or listening ) public who pays the bills. Jonathan Keeble does an amazing job but I had a bit of trouble a few times discerning between Phillips and Hunter then again between Ryan and Armstrong. Love the accent he gives McKenzie.
