About this deal

Fred Humble is a cantankerous man with no friends so when he is found dead in his cottage in Holystone no-one mourns him.

If you enjoy humour as well as the serious side of policing, then I would say that this is a series for you.

I laughed so much throughout with Frank’s one liners, he is 100% a character that I will forever love! This service is entirely free, and your details will never be shared with any third parties whatsoever.J. Ross's description of the settings of Lady's Well, which allowed me to imagine being part of the book's plot. This book goes for the most part to the standard no major overlap with another book from the series, but if you did not read the previous two, I do strongly suggest to have a go before going for this one, or you will know one of the murders in this one. This may be book twenty in the series but I am hoping there will be plenty more yet to come as they are highly entertaining reads with plenty of murder and mayhem with one of the best set of characters who by now feel like family.

I feel like the first few books had a bit more grit and interesting crimes to solve, whereas now the main focus is on the relationships between the characters with a very thinly plotted mystery in the background. While the mystery was perplexing and well-delivered, the rest of the story was a series of loose ends with the major characters.Lady’s Well is probably one of new favourites in the series with plenty of twists that had me hooked.

I know kids are taught that spelling doesn’t matter as long as they make their point I’m old enough to have been taught how to spell and punctuate and this does detract from the story!In this instalment we see the ongoing development of the relationships between Ryan and Anna, Frank and Denise and Mel and Jack.

It's a fair enough thing, and I get why someone might be insecure about it if people are being snobby, but this seemed overkill, and the entire scene seemed to be there to justify self-publishing, and then absolutely nothing happened about that whole storyline. One in particular shocked me to the core and I could feel my jaw dropping more than a few times as I raced through the pages. LJ Ross is an international bestselling author, best known for creating atmospheric mystery and thriller novels, including the DCI Ryan series of Northumbrian murder mysteries which have sold over 8 million copies worldwide. One of the reasons why I have been invested in this series from the start and will carry on reading it is the two loveable crime fighting duo, Ryan and Frank.Along with other readers, I have fallen head over heels for these two characters as there is a definite bromance between the two. Pagans vs Christians, those for fracking vs those against fracking, love vs hate – how will Ryan and Phillips get to the truth? The 20th in the sequence (I am a fan and have read them all) and if it was the premier league it’d be about 15th - safe from relegation but certainly no where near some if the excellent books in this series.
