About this book…
Introducing a new multicast drama by LJ Ross, the author of the international number one best-selling series the DCI Ryan mysteries.
There’s a serial killer targeting the streets of Newcastle, seemingly picking his victims at random but subjecting them all to the same torturous end. When the Chief Inspector on the case goes missing, it falls on DCI Ryan to track down the man who is brutally murdering women and goading the police to ‘catch me if you can’.
As everyone becomes a suspect, Ryan and his team get drawn further and further into the case, but for Ryan the nightmare gets closer to home than he could ever have imagined.
This Audible Original drama stars Tom Bateman (Murder on the Orient Express, Jekyll & Hyde, Snatched), Bertie Carvel (Doctor Foster, Les Misérables), Hermione Norris (Spooks, Cold Feet) and Kevin Whately (Lewis, Auf Wiedersehen, Pet) and is a prequel to the DCI Ryan series.

OMG THIS IS HOW AN AUDIOBOOK SHOULD BE DONE!! It was just absolutely perfect! The story was the a fantastic DCI Ryan procedural as it always is but with the twist of being a prequel so that we meet characters before the events of previous books and see a different side to developing relationships. But this prequel was made extra special by an all star presentation that made me feel as though I was actually at the centre of this investigation. All around me there was the sound of a busy police station, people chatting in the background along with a fantastic full cast of characters to play the roles of our favourite detectives. There were some very well known voices performing here and the effect of those instantly recognisable voices really made it feel as though I was having a big budget TV production playing out in my head! It was like opening up a box of chocolates and having every single one being one of your favourites!
The best audiobook of 2018 by far! I absolutely loved it!
