Great British police procedural

I enjoyed book one in the series and was impressed with Joy Ellis’ writing. Therefore, I gave book two a try.

The story is set in Lincolnshire Fens. It is an area of open skies, marshes, farmland and nature reserves. It is a difficult area for the Fenland constabulary to police because of the distances and dangerous misty roads. Detective Nikki Galena and DS Joseph Easter are teamed up again. Nikki’s neighbor had suddenly committed suicide, or maybe it was murder. Then a man is found executed near Greenborough are the two deaths related? DS Easter might have a stalker. Galena and team must solve the crimes to save DS Easter’s life and career.

The book is well written. The plot is interesting and twists and turns allowing suspense to build to a surprising ending. Ellis continues to build the key characters in this story. She focuses on Easter and Nikki’s boss. I am enjoying the setting of the book. The Fens sound so beautiful. This story is not as good as book one, but it is still enjoyable. Looking forward to the next book.

It is about seven and half hours long. Henrietta Meire does a great job narrating the book. She also narrated book one.

Another great book

To say that this book had many twists and turns would be a great understatement. I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook, both the author and the narrator were excellent, and I'm anxiously waiting for the next in the series. I highly recommend this series. Joy Ellis has a very interesting ability to write.
