The 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.

Starring: Alun Armstrong, Rachel Atkins, Tom Bateman, Mark Bazeley, Anna Bolton, Bertie Carvel, Stephen Critchlow, Vicki Davids, Reece Dinsdale, Harriet Ghost, Frances Jeater, Jack Lloyd, Dean Logan, Daniel Matthew Lemon, Roger May, Hermione Norris, Kate Okello, Colleen Prendergast, Shaun Prendergast, Nicholas Rowe, David Seddon, Marlene Sidaway, Tom Slatter, Fiona Victory, Lauren Waine, Kevin Whately and Hannah Wood 


My Thoughts 

OMFG this has to be the best audio book I have ever listened to……I am very fussy when it’s comes to audio books the narrator voice has to fit the characters. This audio  has totally blown me away I cannot begin to tell you how good it is, not only do we have different narrators for the characters but we also have background noise like the phones in the office ringing and every time Ryan’s phone rang I actually thought it was mine, having the same ring tone lol Oh and of course the creepy killer scenes OMG very very ery

I have before that this series would make a brilliant TV show and this audio is simply the best making you feel part of the investigation. I have always said that this series would make a brilliant TV show now I think that even more. Close your eyes for a second while watching your favourite programme and just listen to the words…..This is exactly what The Infirmary is like watching a thriller without the TV, you will know what I mean when you listen to it.

Not only have the narrators brought this story to life but LJ Ross needs to gives herself a pat on the back with the story. This is the best one in the series so far…..well that’s what I think anyway. I was hooked from the very first chapter, I must admit I am a big fan of DCI Ryan and I love him even more now. For those of you who have read this series we get to learn more about Ryan and how he started on Holy Island when we follow him on a catch me if you can investigation when the chief inspector goes missing.

This is one hell of an engaging story, once you start it you won’t be able to stop it is utterly addictive.

Not forgetting that The Infirmary is the prequel to the DCI Ryan Mysteries series and is a brilliant place to start for those of you who haven’t read it yet with only six hours to listening time I cannot recommend it enough giving it all the stars.
