W.F. Howes Ltd, the UK’s leading audiobook, digital services, and large-print publisher, has acquired the highly anticipated Dr. Alexander Gregory trilogy from international bestselling author Louise (LJ) Ross. The new series follows the story of Dr. Alexander Gregory and his work as a psychological profiler around the world.


Ross is best known for her hugely popular series the DCI Ryan Mysteries, which has sold more than four million copies worldwide. She is also known for knocking Paula Hawkins' The Girl on the Train off the top spot in the Kindle bestseller chart with her first novel, Holy Island, in 2015.


Senior Acquisitions Editor, Laura Smith, acquired exclusive, worldwide, unabridged audio rights to all three books in the forthcoming Dr. Alexander Gregory series.


LJ Ross says: "I'm excited to be working with W.F.Howes to give voice to the new character of psychological profiler, Dr Alexander Gregory. I'm sure that together we can create thrilling new experiences for audiobook listeners!"


The lead character in the series will be familiar to readers and listeners of the DCI Ryan Mysteries, in which he featured as a minor character. The first audiobook in the trilogy is Impostor, which is set for release on 31 October, followed by Hysteria, which comes out on 10 December, and Bedlam, the final instalment, slated for February 2020. The audiobooks will be published simultaneously with the eBook editions.
