    Story
    "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.

    Love books! Classics and lighter fiction, mysteries (not too violent please :-). And selective non-fiction--whatever takes my fancy.

    "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!

    "So many Characters"

    First of all I really like the narrators voice however at times she speaks so fast that it is hard to understand. I feel like she is speed reading and with so many characters I tend to just space out. Sadly it does ruin the storyline. I felt like it was a race to the end. So many names I stopped even trying to figure out who they all were.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Best novel yet in a great British detective series"

    For me the Detective Inspector Nikki Galena series has become addictive. This is the 3rd novel in the series and there are two more not yet available in audio format. The novels in the series are first rate suspense mysteries. Protagonist Nikki Galena is a very strong leader who inspires confidence in her team. Narrator Henrietta Meire takes some getting accustomed to because of her unusual British accent, but her performance is stellar.

    "Superb in all respects"

    Great story line and wonderful character development. Books are self contained but added level of enjoyment if read or listened to in the 'proper' order. The narrator does a top notch job and gives an added level of enjoyment to the whole experience. I have the first 4 in the series and wish the next 2 were also on audible.

    "Intriguing characters, fun accents"

    I enjoy this series for its intriguing characters. There are some nice working relationships as well as ethical bad guys and unethical cops. I wish more was done with the setting, since the fens are highlighted in the series titles.

    "Great book; great series"

    I love this series! I love British crime thrillers and this CID team, led by DI Nikki Galena, is cohesive, talented, and targeted. Someone wants to hurt them badly. Who will be next? Very tense at times but quite good.

    The narration is very good with the exception of mispronouncing several words. I wish the narrators would take the time to look up those "tough" words. The one that I remember best is calling "Belfast Lough" something like Belfast Low. There were a few more.

    I have the next book lined up to read/listen to.

    "3rd in Series Carries Intensity of First 2"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Hunted on the Fens to be better than the print version?

    The audio version of any book is better because I can do mindless chores or close my eyes and rest while listening.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hunted on the Fens?

    The discoveries were never mundane, even if the clues uncovered didn't immediately relate to the mystery.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Midway through the book, one of the starting mysteries is re-explained with a surprising motive. (No spoilers.)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The awkward conversation between Joseph and Vinnie over John's true feelings for Galena was well written. I felt as uncomfortable as Joseph did. The conversation piqued my curiosity for the rest of the story.

    "Gripping twister of a tale"

    Suspense from the beginning with the frisson of Sexual awareness between Nicky & Joseph runs as a silver thread through the twists & turns of the story. Just as you think you have it 'sussed" a new twist develops. The denouement is great. ! The tantalising bit at the end is the question about Joseph & Nicky- did they have a fling or not. I am gasping for my next dose!!!
