A YOUNG WOMAN’S BODY IS FOUND IN A REMOTE BARN ON THE FENS. BEFORE SHE WAS KILLED, ONE OF HER FINGERS HAD BEEN CUT OFF. WHO IS INFLICTING THIS VIOLENCE AND WHY?
Can DI Nikki Galena stop them before anyone else suffers?
Full of twists and turns, this is a crime thriller that will keep you turning the pages until the heart-stopping ending.
The young woman in the barn had been kept captive for some time. And the case shows strong similarities to an unsolved murder in Derbyshire. When another woman is found alive with similar injuries the case grows even more complicated.
At the same time, the Fenland police have received intelligence that the ruthless criminal Freddy Carver plans to make Greenborough the hub for his new enterprise. DI Nikki Galena is desperate to track down Freddie Carver and make sure that he does not put down roots in the Fens, but finding him is not easy. And what’s his connection to the kidnapped girls?
And who is the woman being held captive in a remote location? DI Nikki Galena must rally her team of detectives, while facing a traitor on the inside, as Nikki races against time to save more than one victim, including someone she care deeply about.
Perfect for fans of Rachel Abbott, Robert Bryndza, Mel Sherratt, Angela Marsons, Colin Dexter, or Ruth Rendell.
CAPTIVE ON THE FENS is the sixth novel in a gripping new crime fiction series.
By god it's a good one. I know we tend to say it a lot, but each book is just getting better and better, and I'm really hoping this will be a long running series.
I love the characters, especially Nikki and Joseph, I think their working relationship is first class. I keep wanting it to become more than just friends, but then I think it would completely spoil the stories going forward.
This time around a woman's body is found in an old barn, the woman has a finger missing.
It's not long before another case is linked to this, and the team can start to move forward.
The team also learn that Criminal Freddy Carver has been seen back on the fens, and that can only mean trouble. Trouble Nikki does not want or need. And she's determined to track him down and put a stop to whatever it is he is up to.
The banter between the team is first class, the feelings they have for one another is first class, they are certainly a team that stick together.
I really can't wait for more of this series. I would not hesitate at all to recommend this series to anyone who likes a good crime thriller with lots of twists and turns.
Having read the previous books I do feel it gives me a better understanding of the characters back stories, and for me that helps make each book that little bit better. So if you are going to start them, and believe me I think you should, then please do start from book 1.
Joy Ellis has written a blinder of story here. I NEED the next book NOW.
DI Nikki Galena: A police detective with nothing left to lose, she’s seen a girl die in her arms and her own family destroyed. She’s tough on the criminals who she thinks did this to her.
DS Joseph Easter is the squeaky-clean new member of the team. 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.
THE SETTING The Lincolnshire Fens: great open skies brood over marshes, farmland, and nature reserves. It is not easy terrain for the Fenland Constabulary to police, due to the distances between some of the remote Fen villages, the dangerous and often misty lanes, and the poor telephone coverage. There are still villages where the oldest residents have never set foot outside their own farmland and a visit to the nearest town is a major event. But it has a strange airy beauty to it, and above it all are the biggest skies you’ve ever seen.
