Publisher's Summary

From the number one international best-selling author of Holy Island and The Hermitage.  

Between the devil and the deep blue sea...

Viking treasure is discovered beneath the icy waters of the North Sea, and local historian Dr Anna Taylor is called in to help catalogue the most exciting hoard in living memory. But when a shipwreck diver washes up dead, she’s soon out of her depth. Luckily, she knows just the person to call....

When DCI Ryan arrives at the picturesque fishing town of Seahouses, he's faced with an impenetrable wall of secrets and lies. As he juggles marine archaeology and the cutthroat world of shipwreck diving, another murder blows the case wide open. To uncover the truth, Ryan must delve deeper into the hearts of those around him to find what lies beneath....  

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

Loved it! Another long wait for book 11.. *Sigh*



Another wonderful story with DCI Ryan, his wife Anna and their friends Frank Phillips and Denise MacKenzie-Phillips, who are also police officers.

This story was about 3 murders, one committed more than 20 years ago, and 2 others to cover up that first murder. And I gotta tell ya’ I was really, really, surprised at who the killer was. I would NEVER expected that person as the one. And wow, what a terrible deal for Josh and Daisy.

Oddly enough, I don’t like stories with the MC being married. No idea why I just don’t, usually. BUT I just love the love between Ryan and Anna. There’s no sign of sex in these books but just their words and there few kisses are so sweet, and they seem so real.

As to the narration: Jonathan Keeble is totally awesome.

Longstone

I absolutely love the DCI Ryan series, this one as good, if not my best of them all. There is always a twist in the tale. Cannot wait for the next one. The narration was excellent as always.

Brilliant..

Ryan and the team are back on home soil, and they're soon thrust into an investigation when a body is recovered from the sea. Someone who'd be searching for a lost viking longship just off the coast. Things turn from bad to worse when the killer takes action to cover their tracks. In typical Ryan fashion, he and the team stop at nothing to work out what has taken place.
Some great light entertainment with the lovable DS Frank Philips at Ryans side.
Longstone is another in the wonderful DCI Ryan Series. Beautifully narrated by Jonathan Keeble once again.
Highly recommended.

Best yet!

At last a story that does not hark back overmuch - except for excellent choice of location - to previous well worn story-lines. A fresh departure after the admittedly satisfying 'Hermitage' Book 9 released on Audible the same day. Hope the trend continues and that Jonathan Keeble continues to narrate instead of over egging with an ensemble cast.

Another great

I love this series. The characters are well rounded and so real. The plots are sufficiently intriguing and complex to hold you from start to finish - and there’s always a final surprise! LJ Ross is a talented author and her stories are wonderfully complemented by the skilful narration of Jonathan Keeble. I truly hope for more!

An absolutely ingenious book

L J Ross is one of my favourite authors, and getting two books together was an absolute treat to get two books together. I really feel like I know Ryan and the other major characters. Very well written and genius plots. Highly recommended.

A series not to be missed

Firstly I must apologise that I am a little to the party with this one, I honestly can’t keep up with LJ Ross. Anyway this is the tenth Book in the DCI Ryan Mysteries series….How the hell did that happen?! It doesn’t seem like yesterday when I first started this series, when it was actually two years ago.

I absolutely love each and every single book in the series, the author always brings us something new and exciting.

In this story we taken to the north sea when a viking treasure is discovered. Things take a turn when local historian Anna calls DCI Ryan for help when a ship wreck diver washes up dead.

Once again the author paints a stunning picture with her picturesque descriptions making you feel, right there in the story. Weaving this into an exciting mystery which is a unique story line. I am now desperate to visit the sea houses after reading this.

I love the characters and the humour Frank’s one liners made me LOL and can’t wait to read the next book.

This is a perfect who-dun-it mystery, I couldn’t read it fast enough. If you are looking for a fast paced page turner then this is the book for you. This is a series not to be missed……Which I highly recommend.

Cant wait for another adventure!

I love this author. At times very serious, at times humourous. I have listened to every book in this series...will there be another Louise? I do hope so. I wouldnt want to hear anyone but Jonathon Keeble reading it! My favourite character...has to be Philips!
