A Page Turner

This is the third book of the series. In what starts out as a classic mystery case, a dead woman is found in an impregnable locked room. Then the story takes a twist and someone is out to destroy Nikki and her team. Her team consists of Joseph, Cat, David and the boss is Inspector Bainbridge. Nikki’s daughter, Hannah, has just died and Joseph’s daughter is tricked into showing up and is put into danger. It appears the enemy knows about each of their lives and how to hurt them the most. Just as I thought I had the case solved, the author makes an abrupt change and I am sent off in another direction. Needless to say, the ending is a surprise.

The book is full of suspense, intrigue and enough twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. The characters are interesting and Ellis continues to develop them in each book. I can hardly wait for the next book in the series.

The book is nine hours long. Henrietta Meire does an excellent job narrating the series.

Outstanding narration of a really good series

This series is the first time I've heard the amazing narration of Henrietta Meire. She really brings the characters created by Joy Ellis into vibrant life.

DI Nikki Galena and her partner Joseph Easter are two people who could scarcely be more different, but due to the good writing and narration, these detectives have a kind of dynamic fit that transcends their individual personalities. They genuinely complement each other--as does the team who all work together to solve multiple complex crimes.

This book is very long, and at brief moments I felt overly long (the author very ambitiously put more suspects in, and kept doing so throughout the story, than I could at times keep up with). But it is somewhat of a page turner, so hard to pull away from. Best to just try to keep up! It works okay.

And this particular episode has a lot of high tech focus in places, which is the way of crime novels these days I suppose. (I imagine Agatha would have incorporated that, if she could have, but I'm old, so less impressed by that kind of detecting).

The author is mainly focused on the murder(s) involved, but takes the time to interweave touching moments of interaction among the characters, so that by now, in this third book, I feel that I'm getting to know them rather well, and that helps pull the entire story together.

I'd just say, if you plan to listen, hunker down, be ready to immerse yourself, and enjoy! Certainly worth the credit!

Needs a better narrator

This grates on me. She cannot do accents or dialect and her voice sounds harsh. The story is good though.
