FROM THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE DCI RYAN MYSTERIES
In a world gone mad, who can you trust?
Fresh from a high-profile case in the Paris fashion world, elite forensic psychiatrist and criminal profiler Dr Alexander Gregory receives a call from the New York State Homicide Squad. The girlfriend of a notorious criminal has been admitted to a private psychiatric hospital and can no longer testify in his upcoming trial. Without her, their case will collapse but, amid reports that the staff are as unpredictable as their patients, who can the police trust?
In desperation, they turn to an outsider and now Gregory must find the courage to step inside the fortified walls of Buchanan Hospital to uncover the truth. The question is, will he ever be the same again?
Murder and mystery are peppered with dark humour in this fast-paced thriller set amidst the spectacular Catskill Forest.

The is the third book in the Alexander Gregory series and for me the best so far. It finds the forensic psychologist going undercover in the Buchanan hospital to discover what has happened to missing Mafia wife Lorena. Is she genuinely mentally unwell or has she gone permanently missing before she can give key evidence as an FBI informant? Not knowing who he can trust Gregory must find the answers, whilst playing the role of patient.
You can tell LJ Ross does her research and there’s always something interesting to learn from her stories. I’m really enjoying the psychological insights from this series. She also has a wonderful way of describing locations, in this case the Catskill Forest that makes you want to visit them in person.
I listened to the audio version of Bedlam and for me, Richard Armitage bought this story to life. His narrative is clear and the character voices believable. I really hope he’ll be narrating any further books in this series.
I highly recommend this book, which you will enjoy even more if you can find some delicious cannoli to eat whilst reading.
This is the third book in a series, I had not read the first two but it didn’t spoil my enjoyment of this episode. Whilst visiting the FBI at Quantico, Dr Alexander Gregory and Professor Bill Douglas are asked to assist on a case involving the Mafia which requires Dr Gregory enter Buchanan Psychiatric Hospital posing as a patient. From that point on my head was in a spin, the story was horribly realistic and quickly descended into a situation which is one of my personal nightmares! I was so absorbed in the story I had to listen in one sitting, feeling a sense of disquiet the whole time. Superb writing and excellent narration.
