Dark Skies By LJ Ross

Dark Skies, is book 7 of the Ryan Mysteries, although it reads well as a stand alone, I suggest reading all or at least book 6 to get the full benefit of  this series.

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

FROM THE #1 INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF HOLY ISLAND

Beware what lies beneath…

One fateful, starry night, three friends embark on a secret camping trip but only two return home. Thirty years later, the body of a teenage boy rises from the depths of England’s biggest reservoir and threatens to expose a killer who has lain dormant…until now.

Detective Chief Inspector Ryan returns from honeymoon to face danger from all sides. In the depths of Kielder Forest, a murderer has escaped justice before and will do anything to protect the secrets of the past. Meanwhile, back at Northumbria CID, an old foe has taken the helm as Superintendent and is determined to destroy Ryan at any cost.

Who will prevail in Ryan’s most dangerous case yet?

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

LJ Ross takes us on episode 7 with Ryan and it isn't getting any easier for him. Life just loves throwing curve balls at him, although he is settling in to married life with Anna and it should be rosier than it is. 

We were introduced to Lucas in the last book, and she is very much conquer and divide, we start to see how this affects the lives of those around Ryan, he is aware of ripples, but I am unsure he is ready for the waves that these will cause. 
 

The setting for Dark Skies is Kielder and is a place that I yet again haven't heard of and Ross yet again has brought a corner of the North alive within her pages, even if all her characters aren't so lucky  to stay so. 

A brilliantly written read of the past catching up with the present and quite a few spanners being thrown in to the works to deter Ryan from the result he requires. 

I am unsure what the future holds for our Hero, but I can't wait for the next read to find out.
