So, we still have “The Circle” doing their business in killing innocent people. What a whacked bunch of killers, but what a great storyline.
They find Amy Llewellyn buried in the forest, where she’s been for ten years, then Phillips finds other women that have disappeared or been killed that have similarities to Amy. I love serial killer books; I just don’t want to read about the gruesome killing.
We spend time with Ryan and Anna, and I really like how easy they talk about the killings and Ryan doesn’t try to sugarcoat things “to protect her.” I do get tired of heroes always trying to protect the heroines, like the heroines are made of glass, or something. And, Ryan finally tells Anna about his sister and how Edwards killed Natalie, it was sad. When it was told what actually happened that day (Ryan was dreaming) it was really horrible, what Edwards did to Natalie. And later Ryan told Anna about going to see Edwards so Anna decided NOT to tell him she felt like she was being watched that day. Duh! AND Edwards is still an important player in this story, even if he is in prison.
Soooo, someone called Holy Island a cliffhanger, which it was NOT. BUT this one is close to being a cliffhanger. It left a whole lot of unanswered questions about Ryan in this one. I mean, you really do have to read Heavenfield if you ever want to know what happens to Ryan, as well as The Circle.
This is truly a great murder/mystery/romance. I’m really lovin’ it.
There is swearing in this and the F-bomb was used 9 times. As to the sex, there wasn’t even a fade to black in this one BUT there was a lot of thoughts and feelings of love between Ryan and Anna.
As to the narrator: Again he was a wonderful reader with wonderful male voices and plenty of emotions but his women’s voices still suck. Guess I’ll take the good with the bad, because when he laughs or grunts or grumbles or whispers I can overlook anything.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Its one thing to write a story with a view to a sequel, but this is so blatant that it doesn't have an ending.

This is the second book in a trilogy and I feel that the writing of this one is a bit more assured than the first one, which did suffer a bit from the 'muscular shoulders -smouldering eyes - rippling muscles' type of writing! The plotting and character development of this one is much more confident and involving! Unusually for me, I am quite enjoying the feeling of on-going menace which underpins these books!
Jonathan Keeble's performance is, obviously, superb - and adds greatly to the pleasure to be had from listening to LJ Ross's books!

love, love , love this series. edge of your seat, twists, turns and white rabbits. Super well written, I love this series. Is it the circle? or another muderer. Not written with crass but with a great story line and a tie to the next book.... maybe . Read the series now!!
Great plot and riveting performance from Jonathan Keeble as usual. Terrific characterisations and can't wait to listen to the sequel.
