Cuthbert’s Way — Latest Read

My latest read was Cuthbert's Way by LJ Ross. This is book 17 in Ross's DCI Ryan series. This book is the second half of the story started in book 16, The Shrine. While many of Ross's novels can be read standalone, I would probably recommend reading from the beginning of the series.
