    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.

    "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.

    "Why does it have to be personal?"

    I do like the characters, and I hope to see them change and grow. I will continue with the next book in the series. Spoiler Alert: This time the killer, suspects, criminals, enemy are all focused on the detective, the partner, co-workers, family members, friends, and pets. Why does it have to be personal? Almost all of the crime is directed towards the police. And poor Joseph, for such a highly trained soldier, he has been caught by every trap and trick thrown his way - and then he doesn't end up on top. And how many times have all of them been in and out of the hospital? Please, can't they just have a case that actually involves crime against people outside of the police force?

    "not as good as the others"

    while still a generally enjoyable book, this one seemed a little disjointed and they focused on the other characters a lot more instead of Nikki. Also, for a tough DI, Nikki gasps and cries a lot. And unlike previous books where she clearly is in charge, half this novel had Joseph telling her what to do which doesn't make sense. But overall still worth a listen to if you enjoy the series.

    "Great author, Editor should be fired"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Joy Ellis is a good writer, but she needs a literate editor. A good editor would point out the meaning of the word, Reticent, which is NOT synonymous to reluctant. Saying "reticent to speak" is redundant and wrong. Tantor Publishing/Recorded Books should hire me instead.


    Any additional comments?

    Please fire the editor. There are places where the wrong name is said, and other grammatical errors.

    "Needs a better narrator"

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

    "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!!!
