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.

This four book series -- Crime on the Fens, Shadow over the Fens, Hunted on the Fens and Stalke on the Fens -- is GREAT! And they nestle together beautifully, capturing the depth and growth of the characters as they go. Do start with the first (Crime on the Fens) and you will be hooked to learn more about what happens to DI Nikki Galena and her murder unit of detectives. The story lines are very, very good and the narration fits so perfectly with the locale of the story. Loved every minute of this entire series.

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.

I cannot praise Joy Ellis's works highly enough. I have listened to the first six with excellent narration by Henrietta Meire. I know Henrietta can falter a little at times but who wouldn't with so many roles to cover. Most importantly I can recognise the main characters immediately. And Joy Ellis brings every "person" straight at you! There is everything in these novels - intrigue, crime, social behaviours, romantic (non-mushy) interludes and gripping thriller moments. I would advise following the series sequentially to really immerse yourself in their worlds that can be black and very bleak at times but always riveting. And the ever-present "will they won't they?" relationship between Nikki and Joe. I'm sure even Joy herself doesn't know the answer!
