Review: Crime on the Fens

Crime on the Fens Crime on the Fens by Joy Ellis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I just love discovering new authors and new series. This is so good!

This is book 1 in the DI Nikki Galena series, and author Joy Ellis has written 5 books already.

There's a strong female lead, grumpy and uncompromising, as in many of the books I've read lately. But DI Nikki Galena is different. In this first installment she has to rein herself back, as she's on probation: if she doesn't manage to work with her new partner, she can get kicked out.
Her new partner is a war veteran with many problems of his own. He gives the appearance of being prudish and restrained, but he's altogether different.

War breaks between the gangs in the Fens. They are all hidden behind horrible masks and causing havoc. And then 2 young girls are abducted. When one is found dead, they have to untangle all the events that are happening in the Fens, in order to find the other one alive.

One of the clues she finds leads to a girl that is responsible for DI Galena's daughter being in a coma, so she is even more involved in solving the case.

I already have the nest 4 book lined up!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
