DCI Nikki Galena and her sergeant Joseph Easter are back again with their team. It makes a refreshing change that here we have a normal police woman, who's the boss and whilst feisty (she comes out fighting for her own sanity and the safety of her team) she's not drowning in depression or prescription drugs/alcohol as other detectives in this genre often are portrayed.)
There are many twists and turns in the plot as we try to work out what is going on in this incredibly fast paced thriller crime novel. The book starts with a death, the victim was guarded however by a highly sophisticated security system and there is no apparent entry into or out of the building. Evidence points to police revenge, especially as the police's arch enemy has been sighted locally but nothing is as it seems....
Even though the 3rd book in the series each book can stand alone, as without having read the others and you would know what is happening and still enjoy it. That being said knowing the back stories gives a better reading experience and I am particularly enjoying the character development.
This is a great story full of suspense with twists and turns from start to finish. I am looking forward to more Nikki and Joseph adventures, as always, I was gripped all the way through. 5 Stars - This was yet another Thrilling read.
I really like this series, but I don’t think I want to be part of this team as it’s too dangerous. They always end up at the hospital. This is a mystery that is difficult to solve as a reader, therefore it keeps you thinking right to the very end. There is a very satisfying ending for one character in particular.
The action and technology is well researched and so the criminal activities and the investigation is believable without any logic holes. I did think that the end was a bit rushed but was not disappointed by the overall story which had to be read.
If you like well written books with action this scores for Joy Ellis and now for the next one
I read the whole novel on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next. This book ran you right through the gamut of emotions - heartbreaking with a shocking death at the start of the novel, fear at the team being stalked by a madman leaving no clues and joy at the possible beginnings of a new relationship and the tenderness that surrounds it.
I won't give spoilers away but I SO hope the author has another DI Nikki Galena in the wings, (after 4) I don't think I can hang on for too long.
I'm off now to read more of the author's other novels.
Sometimes I was just gripped by the atmosphere created by the vocabulary and the delivery of the story by the narrator,
Her description of the Fens makes them come alive in a way that I wish I could travel to see them, they sound beautiful.
Her characters are all very different, but cog in well with each other.
I love these books, they are well worth reading, especially if the weather is cold and drear and you can afford to just sit and read.

And with reading on a kindle, I can tell you that it was at 90% before the story finally unfolded! And only then did it become a page turner. Before that lots of time wasted on irrelevant stories about the Carborough estate..... and after the initial brutal incident, Nikki still sent two uniformed constables out for coffee!!
Even worse the entire case was wound up by reported speech between Nikki and Joseph. Even more non-believable was that this set of criminals (who bordered on the supernatural for their abilities, insight, observation of everyone and anyone (ringing Joseph’s daughters mates mobile???) the explanation was almost as spluttering unbelievable. A highly skilled team go to work because one of their members bore a grudge which was totally unjustified incidentally, and which surely such a highly trained set of operatives would have investigated!?
I just feel this was churned out formulaic stuff and a real let down.
In this book the culprit is cyber crime, with help from a human being. Cyber crime is becoming increasingly common these days with bank accounts being emptied, and government agencies having their top secret records hacked into from places halfway around the world. So the plot is of its time. Big business it appears to be!
I don't think a glossary of English slang at the back for US reader's is necessary though. They don't do it for us do they.
Onto book number four.
A few minor quibbles such as the D.I not realising how quickly a computer virus can get a grip on your device (I checked the date of publish and I feel I was well aware of this years before 2016 - and I don't work in a technology field). Ellis writes well though and she draws you in with her characters, crimes and pace. I can visualise the slightly ominous but misty beauty of the marshes as much as the hard living Carborough estate and as it's fiction, I can forgive the odd quibble.
She banged her fist up and down on the desk.
OK:? got the image in your head? and asking yourself why 'she thumped her fist on the desk' would not have been more vivid, more precise and more logical English...
