THE FOURTH FRIEND by JOY ELLIS

WHAT THE READERS ARE SAYING

The Quiet Geordie : https://thequietgeordie.wordpress.com

My thoughts:

The novel opens with Detective Carter McLean and four of his friends flying in a small jet. They are flying out to Amsterdam for one of the groups Stag Dos. Within moments, the plane crashes, and Carter is the only survivor.

Jump forward 18 months, and Carter returns to work. He believes he must fulfil a task for each of his friends.

There are two main cases ongoing in the team. Carter is assigned with one of his colleagues (Detective Superintendent Marie Evans) to one – the stalking of the Superintendent’s Niece. The other case is the one Carter really wants in on, as it involves the wife of one of his friends. She has been missing for 18 months. But does Carter want to help with the case for the right reasons?

Whilst this is Book 3 in the Jackman and Evans series, it was the first I have read, and it most definitely works as a standalone. There was a character list at the back with a background on each of the characters, and I never became confused with the different voices.

I enjoyed the setting and pace of the novel. It had enough twists to keep me going, but not so many I was confused.

I look forward to reading another book by Joy Ellis soon!

I AM DELIGHTED TO WELCOME YOU TO A LOVELY GUEST POST BY JOY ELLIS

The DI Jackman and DS Marie Evans series

Many years ago I had the idea that I would like to create a series of books under the heading of the Marshland Mysteries. They would cover a huge area of the Fens, and involve several different divisions of the fictional Fenland Constabulary. I wanted the books to have connections and overlaps, but was told rather bluntly, that it wouldn’t work.
I didn’t believe that, but I did rethink things.
I had been considering several ideas for characters for crime novels, and in the end came down to two; DI Nikki Galena, and DI Rowan Jackman. I then wrote two full length novels, Crime on the Fens, originally titled Mask Wars, with Nikki as the protagonist, and The Murderer’s Son, using Jackman.
Nikki’s Fen Series took off, but I remembered how much I had enjoyed writing the Jackman book, and my new and quite amazing publisher Jasper Joffe, loved it too. “Always write what you love,” were his words. “So why not write another?” And that resulted in Their Lost Daughters. Now we have The Fourth Friend, and I think this one in particular, showcases the difference in the two series.
With the Jackman novels, there is always a very strong psychological element, and the tormented soul, be they hero or villain, plays a major role with considerable focus on their POV. There are often moral dilemmas for Jackman and Marie; things occur that are not dealt with within the pages of Butterworth’s Police Law, and are very difficult for police officers to deal with. Very often, I allow the two detectives to put aside the rule books, and simply react as caring and decent human beings.
To be honest, as a writer, I cannot choose between the two series as a favourite, the characters are my friends and I care about them all. But… the research for the Jackman novels really grips me. I understand a little more than some, about living and sharing a life with a loved one with psychological problems, so really hope that my portrayal of these characters has a good degree of empathy and understanding. I sincerely hope so.


Linda Strong Book Reviews: Goodreads: Linda Strong’s Reviews

Detective Carter McLean suffers from survivor’s guilt. While on a fun weekend with his four best friends, the plane crashes and kills everyone but himself. But that’s not the last he sees of his friends.

His friends visit him. Realistically, Carter does not believe in ghosts, but he sees them, always accompanied by the smell of smoke. These were all young men and they all left things undone. Carter decides to honor them by completing something each of them has left undone.

His supervisors have him sitting a desk, not knowing how he will handle the stress of dealing with victims, suspects. Even some of his colleagues worry about him. He is still under the care of a psychiatrist.

Meanwhile, the police department doesn’t shut down. Multiple cases are being handled by the team of detectives under DI Jackman. There is a missing woman who has ties to Carter. Another young woman has a stalker .. she happens to be the niece of one their supervisors.

I have read several books by this author … and by far, this is the best ever. The premise is extraordinary …. and so well written. The characters are terrific, especially Carter. I felt such compassion for him and his circumstances. There is constant movement, as the cases are investigated and how all seem related in one way or another. The ending was so surprising. I had envisioned several scenarios … but I never, ever saw this one coming.

Many, many thanks to the author and Joffee Books for the advanced digital copy of THE FOURTH FRIEND. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.

Book Description

TWO GIRLS GO TO A PARTY, ONLY ONE RETURNS ALIVE
Toni, the surviving teenager, is found delirious, wandering the muddy fields. She has been drugged and it’s uncertain whether she’ll survive. She says she saw her friend Emily being dragged away from the party. But no one knows who Emily is or even if she’s still alive. . .
Meanwhile the drowned body of another girl has been found on an isolated beach.
And how does this all relate to the shocking disappearance of a little girl nearly a decade ago, a crime which was never solved? The girl’s mother is putting immense pressure on the police to re-open the high-profile case.
EACH ONE OF THEM IS SOMEONE’S DAUGHTER AND THE POLICE MUST GIVE THEIR FAMILIES JUSTICE AND CLOSURE
DI Rowan Jackman and DS Marie Evans of the Fenland police are stretched to the limit as they try to bring the perpetrators of these shocking crimes to justice.

Full of twists and turns, this is a crime thriller that will keep you turning the pages until the shocking ending.

My Review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is book 1 in the Jackman and Evans series and, while it does work very well as a stand-alone, I would recommend reading them in sequence so as to extract full enjoyment from what is an excellent book. That said, I did read Book 2: Their Lost Daughters a few months ago and really enjoyed it so this book has been on my ‘to read’ list.

The story begins 20 years ago with the brutal murder of a farmer and his wife. The murderer was caught, imprisoned and has since died. Fast forward to the present day and another brutal murder is committed on the patch of DI Rowan Jackman, DS Marie Evans and their team. They are sifting through the evidence when a man walks into the police station and confesses to the murder. Jackman and Evans think this is too easy and they would be right but just what is going on in Daniel’s head and life?

This is a very gripping story with a lot going on as the team try to untangle the web and uncover the clues. However, there are complications at every turn and all is not as it seems as we join the team on an adrenaline pumping journey through the twists and turns of the case. As more murders are committed and people are running away and going missing this is one very gripping book that is impossible to put down.

I love Jackman, Evans and the team as we learn about them and their lives. They develop very well throughout the book and, as I have grown to expect from Joy, there are no chunks of descriptive text as their personalities develop and we learn about their past lives.

This is an excellent start to what is developing into a fantastic series you won’t want to miss. Definitely worth every one of the 5 stars and a must read for anyone who likes psychological thrillers, police procedural or any kind of crime fiction. I will definitely be reading every book by this author.

My Review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is the first book I have read by this author and is book 2 in the series. I like to read books in sequence and especially like to read the first book as this is when most of the character building takes place. However, this book does work very well as stand-alone and although I felt I had missed out on some of the history to the characters it didn’t spoil my enjoyment of the book.

The story starts with a dead girl case landing on the desk of Rowan Jackman and then a cold case is added into the mix which leaves Jackman and Evans juggling cases. A situation made much worse when another case involving a missing girl is handed over to Jackman’s team by another branch of the Police Force. To make matters worse while they are collecting the information for the case of the missing girl another linked case is brought to their attention.

The action starts from page 1 and the author makes a brilliant job of moving all the cases forward in such a way that the reader finds it very easy to follow where they could have become confused. There are many twists and turns throughout the book and the suspense is building all the time.

I can say, with complete honest, that this is one of the most gripping and adrenaline pumping books I have read in a long time. Cases involving children always tug at the heartstrings and this book does plenty of pulling as the separate cases are all brought to their mind blowing conclusions.

There are many characters involved and they are all complex characters that the reader gets to know throughout the book. Heartbreakingly realistic as many issues are examined. There are corrupt members of the force and mothers looking for a lost daughter for years without giving up hope, traumatised children and heinous crimes all thrown into the mix sorted out and laid out for the reader in an awesome book that will stay with the reader for some time to come.

I am looking forward to more from this author.

Thank you to Joffe Books who provided me with a free copy of this book.

Michael Hambling

SECRET+CRIMES+FINAL
I’ve found Joffe Books to be very supportive of my writing. The advice
on editing has been great, and the company has reacted positively to any concerns I’ve had about their decisions. I’ve had absolutely no regrets about signing up with them; they are a very forward looking
organisation, responsive to both the market and to the needs of their
authors. Jasper Joffe is a very sincere person who wants to best for his
authors. I didn’t hesitate when it came to re-signing my contract
recently.

Two Lovers Six Deaths

I started writing crime novels after publishing literary fiction. I submitted a manuscript to Joffe Books and had a quick and straightforward response from Jasper. I have now had three crime fiction novels published by Joffe Books featuring private investigator Tyrone Swift, with the fourth, Watching You, due out now. Joffe Books has also re published three of my literary fiction novels. I find Jasper and his colleagues highly supportive, encouraging, responsive and friendly. Communication is easy and direct and I have been consulted at every stage about editing and book covers. They have worked with me on manuscripts to tighten plot, increase the pace of a novel and to iron out glitches. Jasper is also patient and helpful when I need his IT skills. I get regular feedback about sales and response to my books. I know that Joffe Books is growing and it deserves every success as a publishing house.

The Beekeeper Final

When I was contacted by Joffe Books earlier in the year, I had mixed emotions. After spending years talking to agents and publishers to no avail I was now the one being approached. I was delighted. On the other hand, I’d had dealings before with what I call ‘The dark side’ of the publishing world – not mentioning any names – and in the past the initial bubble of elation had always been burst when I realised the sole intention of this ‘dark side’ was to exploit the dreams of writers. Joffe Books immediately restored my faith in the industry. Luckily, I had the finished manuscript of ‘The Beekeeper’ and I promptly sent it off, soon to learn that it was far from finished. Roughly two months later, we had a finished book we could be proud of. Working with Jasper and his team at Joffe Books has taught me so much in such a short space of time. Their patience and tolerance of my rather out-of-date tech skills, as well as their aftermarket support has been unbelievable. I’m proud to be associated with such an amazing publishing house and I would recommend them to anyone with a book they want the world to read.


Joy+and+the+boys+039+(1)JOY ELLIS

There are some decisions that you make in life, that feel right from the word go. When Jasper Joffe rang me and we discussed the possibilities of working together, I knew immediately that was what I wanted to do. I trusted him, loved his undeniable passion and talent for publishing, and frankly wanted to work my socks off to make a success of things. The last year,( almost!) has been a roller-coaster, and Jasper and his staff have been there every step of the way, freely offering expertise and encouragement. I have struggled for the past seventeen years to find a place as a crime writer, and now, since becoming one of Jasper Joffe’s authors, I can quite honestly say, ad astra per ardua.  And a big Thank You, Jasper.

UK #1 Best Seller with THEIR LOST DAUGHTERS

“I was born in Kent but spent most of my working life in London and Surrey. I was an apprentice florist to Constance Spry Ltd, a prestigious Mayfair shop that throughout the sixties and seventies teemed with both royalty and ‘real’ celebrities. What an eye-opener for a working-class kid from the Garden of England! I swore then, probably whilst I was scrubbing the floor or making the tea, that I would have a shop of my own one day. It took until the early eighties, but I did it. Sadly the recession wiped us out, and I embarked on a series of weird and wonderful jobs; the last one being a bookshop manager. Surrounded by books all day, getting to order whatever you liked, and being paid for it! Oh bliss!

And now I live in a village in the Lincolnshire Fens with my partner, Jacqueline, and our two second generation Springer spaniels. I had been writing mysteries for years but never had the time to take it seriously. Now I can, and as my partner is a highly decorated retired police officer; my choice of genre was suddenly clear. I have set my crime thrillers here in the misty fens because I sincerely love the remoteness and airy beauty of the marshlands. This area is steeped in superstitions and lends itself so well to murder!”


Helen Durrant

“My books would never have enjoyed the success they have without Joffe Books. They do an excellent job from start to finish. The editing, book covers, marketing and finally, the liberal sprinkling of ‘fairy dust’ Jasper sprinkles over the final product.” – Helen

I’m one of the ‘baby boomer’ generation. I was born in Edinburgh to an English father and Scottish mother. My father was from the North West of England and this was where the family settled.

I know the area well, both the good and the bad, and so I set my books here. Sitting between two counties, Lancashire and Yorkshire, and between the city and the hills, it offers a rich mix of the industrial and the countryside and all the character therein. I always planned to write crime novels — to create the characters in my books. Since my retirement from a busy teaching job in FE, this is what I’ve done — almost to exclusion of anything else!

I have a grown-up family and five grandchildren. They see me as something of an eccentric — always on my laptop writing away. Writing is something of a second career and, despite having a bus pass, keeps me busy, young and tuned in the world as it currently is.
