    This is the first book in the Fens series Since I was given the impression that the very last book was the first, I've already read it So I experienced some trepidation that if I started from the very beginninng, I'd be disappointed Not so! This author hit her stride from the very first page, and I look forward

    I read mostly European mysteries and this one was only mediocre It does have a decent plot, but the writing is not so great and the dialogue at times is very cliched So are the two main characters The brisk, argumentative young female detective who has never disclosed that she has a daughter in a persistent vegetative state (really?) and the sexy, handsome ex special ops detective who never sees his ex wife or daughte

    I thought this was really enjoyable easy read It came up as an recommendation and really appealed to me as I holiday regularly in East Anglia so know the feel of that area well.The feeling on menace on the fens at night and in the estate where quite a lot of the action takes place are both developed well.There are not too many key characters which I quite like in a book like this as it keeps the plot nice and easy to

But his nickname Holy Joe belies his former life as a soldier He has an estranged daughter who blames him for everything that went wrong with their family Their adversary is a ruthless man who holds DI Galena responsible for his terrible disfiguremen. Enjoyed the story line and the connection between DI Nikki Galena Joseph and her team Very atmospheric and descriptive of the fens and area must admit I have never been but could clearly see it in my imagination I like the frisson between Nikki and Joseph the spark of romance that could or couldn t be there but is left on the back burner as both know it would spoil their working relationship Nikki is one feisty lady and not to be messed with if you like strong go get the bad guys type of women who bend a few rules along the way then this is for you So impressed with the story I am working my way through the rest of Joy Ellis books Top of the tree author for me
