Title: Stalker on the Fens
Author: Joy Ellis
Stars: 5 out of 5
I selected this book to read filled with anticipation that it would be a nitty gritty down to earth British police procedural murder mystery. The type of story that the British excel at converting into long running television series. I expected strong characters and excellent story telling by the author. I am gratified to report that this book has meet all of my expectations and was a joy (no pun intended on the author's first name) to read. It even has a dictionary of English words and terms, for those Yanks who have not had the privilege of visiting or residing in England, so they can fully appreciate the story being put forth.
I strongly recommend this book and gave it a five star rating.
I received an ARC from Netgalley for my unbiased review.
Thank you Frank for your Review
DI Nikki Galena’s friend Helen Brook is involved in a serious accident where she is trapped in a collapsed cellar. After her hard-won recovery, Helen is still getting flashbacks to a man she says was down there with her and who confessed to a murder. But no trace of this man can be found.
Then Helen tells Nikki that someone is watching her. But is all this in her friend’s imagination and part of her post-traumatic stress?
And why is Stephen Cox back in town? He’s the villain who tore Nikki’s life apart and he seems to have returned for revenge.
Before long the whole town is on the verge of hysteria and her friend’s fear will lead Nikki and Joseph on a very dangerous trail.
