Sycamore Gap is the second in the DCI Ryan series and we pick up with Ryan six months after Holy Island.
When human remains are discovered within the stones of Hadrian's Wall it's not long before DCI Ryan is called in to investigate but it soon becomes clear that everything is not as simple as it appears.
As the body count rises, Ryan is caught up in a wild goose chase and it looks like he may have to revisit his previous case despite the official police reports stating that The Circle has disband ...more
I would like to thank Booklover Catlady Publicity and the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest and open review.
I read and loved "Holy Island", so I was looking forward to reading this sequel. I was certainly not disappointed. If anything I enjoyed it more. The reason being that although I had visited Holy Island grew up in Newcastle and Durham. I could visualise so many of the areas described.
It is a real roller-coaster of a ride. I was drawn in at page one ...more

Read the first few pages and realised it was going to be as bad as the first book so found something else to read
Following her debut novel, Holy Island, this book continues the theme. If anything this new works is even better than her first book, the book keeps your interest from start to finish with unexpected twists along the way. A story set in the North East along Hadrians Wall well structured and gripping. A real page turner from page one to the last page. A must read book that leaves you with a tease at the end. I am now looking forward to the next book.
Well, I did try to get to grips with this - not once, but twice, but I simply couldn't get past the first few chapters.
I know this book has received good reviews from other people, so I must be in the minority, but I found the writing quite poor and what looked to be a sub-plot about a satanic cult in positions of high power a bit too much.
Definitely not for me
I received a free copy from the author and Booklover Catlady Publicity in exchange for an honest review. Thank you so much!
No sophomore slump for DCI Ryan. After solving the case of the Holy Island murders, he and his team investigate old human remains buried in Hadrian's Wall. The case is 10 years old and the infamous Hacker, who murdered Ryan’s sister, may have committed it. There is also a conspiracy building a web around him (if you read the previous novel you will know who is in it) and thi ...more
