Ryan's most explosive case yet…
It's been five months since a killer walked free and DCI Ryan is preparing to leave Newcastle to hunt him down - this time, for good.
But Ryan's plans are scuppered when events take a dramatic turn and he is forced to stay and face his past one last time, or watch a friend suffer the consequences.
Amid the chaos, another killer is preparing to strike. When the Tyne Bridge explodes, Ryan's team are faced with a frantic race to uncover a deadly foe who won't stop until every bridge is burned, along with everybody on it...
Murder and mystery are peppered with romance and humour in this fast-paced crime whodunit set amidst the spectacular Northumbrian landscape.
Well what an opening to a story it completely captured my attention and I couldn't wait to see how things would turn out. If you are looking for a mystery that will have you turning the pages but also trying to take everything in so you don't miss a single clue then Seven Bridges is ideal. In this book DCI Ryan is caught up in not one but two cases as he tries to find a dangerous and unpredictable killer along with an investigation that is much more personal.
There is tension throughout as the fear over when the killer will strike next mounts. Everything works so well within this story from the setting where L J Ross creates fear and unease as people go about their lives to the characters who are so likeable. There is banter which will leave you smiling but also friendships that will genuinely make you care about the characters and what could happen to them.
I'm trying to be pretty vague when it comes to the plot as there some surprises waiting for you that I would hate to spoil. Along with setting the next book up perfectly, I can't wait to see what will happen next!
L J Ross writes the most interesting, exciting and addictive stories along with creating the brilliant DCI Ryan!
Five stars from me!
