Stalker on the Fens is Book 5 in the DI Nikki Galena series. Like each of the prior four it is a wonderful suspense thriller this novel is special. The novels are set in the Fens which is an area on England's central east coast approximately 50 miles northeast of London. Detective inspector Nikki Galena is a marvelous protagonist. Narrator Henrietta Meire reads in the clipped English accent most common in the area. It can be a little difficult for Americans at first, but understanding comes quickly. Author Joy Ellis is a master of the police procedural genre. I highly recommend this series and this novel.
The sixth audio novel in this seven novel series will be released in two weeks. The title is Captive on the Fens. It is currently available for pre-order at Audible, but is less expensively ordered through Amazon's Whispersync for Voice.

I like the characters and location, but all the crimes in the series have been focused on the police, co-workers, family, and friends. I would like to see the characters working on a crime that is not personal. As for this story, I stopped with Helen needing her partner to "be there for her" along with outsiders getting into the mix. Here in the USA when you need to "be there" for someone, there is FMLA paperwork for the worker, the doctors, and approval from the company for that to happen. And it was annoying to see outsiders interfering in another couple's relationship. I might pick up the story and finish it, but I was not enjoying it. I didn't care who did it, why they did it, or why Helen was involved. I cancelled my pre-order for the next book.

Any additional comments?
Even though the narration is poor the story line is excellent. The story deals with current issues in the context of a police drams. I have listened to the previous books and was hoping when this was released it would have a change of narrator. Even so a good listen I enjoyed the twists and turns of the plot unexpected ending kept me guessing to the last.
