Summary:

From the International Number 1 Bestselling Author of the DCI Ryan Mysteries. Impostor is the first instalment in Ross' brand new Dr Alex Gregory series, narrated by actor Hugh Dancy.

After an elite criminal profiling unit is shut down amid a storm of scandal and mismanagement, only one person emerges unscathed. Forensic psychiatrist Doctor Alexander Gregory has a reputation for being able to step inside the darkest minds to uncover whatever secrets lie hidden there and, soon enough, he finds himself drawn into the murky world of murder investigation. In the beautiful hills of County Mayo, Ireland, a killer is on the loose. Panic has a stranglehold on its rural community and the Garda are running out of time. Gregory has sworn to follow a quiet life but, when the call comes, can he refuse to help their desperate search for justice? Murder and mystery are peppered with dark humour in this fast-paced thriller set amidst the spectacular Irish landscape.

LJ Ross is a self-published literary sensation whose books have sold over 4 million copies in paperback, ebook and audio. We are proud to bring her work to libraries for the first time.

    I really enjoyed this book. Different to my usual choices.

    Well paced writing. Keeps you guessing who done it. Narrator did well with the Irish accent for many of the characters.

  • Marion S.

    Really enjoyed this book. It’s well written and the narration is great. Looking forward to reading the next one.

  • Melanie M.

    I wouldn't say this book is particularly special in any way, but I gave it 5 stars for being satisfactorily entertaining. The story moves quickly and is interesting, albeit a bit predictable, but overall I found it a fun/easy read. The narrator was good at distinguishing characters with accents too.

  • Carol G.

    This book was great! Dr. Gregory is competent, brilliant, and very likable. The story is well written and flowed well. I highly recommend this author and this series. I've already ordered the second of the series.

  • Alisa C.

    Really enjoyed this book. The mystery was well thought out and the ending did leave me wanting to read more from the main character.

  • Maree G.

    Great book. Suspense and great storyline.

  • Kristen L.

    This book was okay. I enjoyed the story, but not the preaching! Not for God, but against Him... Also the determination that all people are a victim of their circumstances rather than responsible for their own actions... I am not against people believing these things, but I don't think exposition of these views belongs on the pages of fiction. Leave that to the halls of philosophy.

  • Laurie R.

    Enjoyed.

  • KristenLeigh

    It was slow going at first but then I was hooked! Loved the ending! Definitely interested in the authors series of Alex Gregory.

  • Anonymous

    Great story. Good narrating.

  • Kenneth D.

    It was a good listen. I certainly did NOT figure who the guilty party was.........not even close>. The narrator was very good also differentiating between a British and Irish accent all the way through the book.

    An enjoyable first outing with author LJ Ross and the opener to her Alexander Gregory series, Impostor. A young married mother is murdered in a small village community in Mayo. The police are clueless and send for London based psychologist, Alexander Gregory to help build a profile of the killer. I enjoyed the setting for this one and Gregory's involvement in the investigation, which seems to be very much a family affair. The matriarch, Maggie Byrne is the town's mayor and her two sons, Niall and Connor work for different branches of the Garda Síochána and are heavily involved in the investigation - too close probably. We have a further murder and Gregory's thoughts on the killer's motivation and issues. There's a flip-flop back to London and Alex's daily life and patient case load. Back in Ballyfinny, we have a growing list of possible suspects, including the Mayor's sons, a local priest and some other characters we meet from the small village. When the revelation came as to the killer's identity, it wasn't someone I had previously considered, though it wasn't quite so left field that I felt the author had taken liberties. Overall, I enjoyed the story and the narration was good. The outcome was credible, the characters well developed and the book carried along at a decent clip. LJ Ross is definitely an author I'll be reading more of in the future. 4 from 5 Read - (listened to) October, 2021 Published - 2019 Page count - 311 (7 hrs 3 mins) Source - Audiobooks Fomrat - Audible
