TWO BRUTAL KILLERS ARE LOOSE ON THE FENS BUT WHO CAN DI NIKKI GALENA TRUST?
A gripping crime thriller with a big twist at the end.
Detective Nikki Galena’s friend and neighbour meets a tragic end but there’s more to his death than meets the eye . . .
And someone terrible from DS Joseph Easter’s past is back . . .
A man is found executed on a piece of wasteland in Greenborough town
The cold-blooded murder triggers terrible memories for DS Joseph Easter. Just when things seemed to be going well for DS Easter, he realises that the nightmare is coming back, threatening his career, his sanity, and maybe his life.
In a breath-taking conclusion even Nikki begins to doubt DS Easter as he faces a race against time to save someone very close to him.
I received a copy of Shadow over the Fens from the publisher and netgalley.com in exchange for an honest review. And I would like to say a big thank you for that.
I started reading this, Book2 in the DI Nikki Galena series as soon as I finished book 1. I really did enjoy book 1, and was hoping and praying that book 2 would be just as good.
I got to know the main characters DI Nikki Galena and DS Joseph Easter in book 1, and I really will say It would help greatly if you read the first book, Crime on the Fens first, as it will really help with the character background and give you an idea of what has happened in both their pasts. Although some of their past is highlighted in this book, I still feel you would get a better feel of it.
I think it's safe to say in this book Joseph's past seems to have come back to haunt him. In the shape of Billy Sweet, who is someone Joseph hoped he would never see again.
In the Fens this time, Nikki's neighbour has committed suicide, but Nikki along with his sister are convinced it was not a suicide even though there were witnesses that saw it.
Nikki has to watch that she isn't showing that she is too close to the investigation or she will be taken off it. But she's hell bent on proving that her instincts are right.
I have to say I gave book one 5/5 because I really did enjoy it, but I can honestly say this one was even better. There just doesn't seem time to catch your breath through this book, there is just something happening all the way through it. And I'm hoping this series continues in this way and can't wait to here more of this odd duo. They just seem to work so well together.
And as I have been writing this review, I have just got book 3, which I am going to start as soon as I finish my current read. I love finding a new series where I can read the books back to back and really enjoy them.
