BURIED CRIMES
Devastating family secrets from the past. Sisters with a murderous rivalry . . .

A family move into their dream home in Dorchester: it seems perfect, particularly for their two children, but when Philip and Jill Freeman decide to move a buddleia bush, what they find buried beneath its roots will haunt them forever.

Why have two children’s skeletons been lovingly wrapped and buried in their garden?

TWISTED CRIMES
Sylvia and Ted Armitage, a retired couple, attend the wrong funeral service by mistake. A month later their daughter returns from holiday to find them missing. The police make little headway in tracing their whereabouts until their bodies are found in their car, abandoned in the middle of a copse in a tranquil nature reserve. They appear to have committed suicide, but some of the forensic evidence suggests otherwise. The police slowly make progress and find several links to a shady organisation that owns a string of bars, clubs and cafes.
When another body is found in the same area, DCI Sophie Allen must use all her investigative skills to unravel the connections between these very different victims. Some are involved in shady deals and corruptions, others are masking dark family secrets. Sophie is joined by two new police officers, Rose Simons and George Warrander, who will transform her team.

EVIL CRIMES
A young man’s body is spotted in the stormy sea off Dancing Ledge in Dorset.

Did he lose his footing in the gale force winds and fall in? Or is there a more sinister cause of death?

Detective Sophie Allen’s team discover some curious links to a suicide that happened six months earlier. A strikingly attractive female student connects the cases. Alarming facts slowly come to light as the team probes more deeply.

Is the young woman as evil as she seems or is someone else manipulating her?

THIS BOX SET CONTAINS BOOKS 4-6 OF THE SOPHIE ALLEN SERIES.

IF YOU LIKE ANGELA MARSONS, RACHEL ABBOTT, COLIN DEXTER, RUTH RENDELL, OR MARK BILLINGHAM you will be gripped by this exciting new crime fiction writer.

Her brilliant mind conceals some dark secrets from her past.

My reviews

Killer on the Fens

Nikki Galena has more tragedy in her life as her Dad passes away.  His last request was to find Eve.  Who is Eve and why was her Dad so determined that she should find him is only one question of many that Nikki has to find the answers to.

Joseph is her partner and he is trying to rebuild a relationship with his daughter Tamsin.  He has been making little progress but in this book she comes to stay and Joseph has taken leave to spend time with her.  But is it Joseph she wants to spend time with or is she more interested in the handsome Niall?

Now to the story.  Now I really have no idea where Joy gets the ideas for these stories.  Each one is totally unique and this one is no different.  It revolves around an area of the Fens that is a disused military base on an area that is dangerously marshy and affected by tides.  Lights and noises have been seen and heard by several people and rumour is that these are ghosts of the fens but the realistic Nikki thinks differently.

When a small time crook falls down a shaft and another youth goes missing the team are on the case to try to find out what is going on.  What they find is a lot of secrets that link back to Nikki’s father’s past.  Having to rely on a  self formed group of Historical people who have secrets of their own and the team are looking through an entangled mesh of lies and secrets but what they find is so unbelievably unexpected that they are all left reeling.

This is a fast paced journey through a tangled web of lies and secrets with a liberal helping of twists, turns and dead ends that had me turning page after page.  Another fantastic addition to the bestselling Nikki Galena series.

5 golden stars from me

Stalker on the Fens

This is book 5 in the ‘Fens’ series by Joy Ellis and I was really looking forward to another book starring the awesome character of Nikki Galena.  I wasn’t disappointed this is another roller coaster of a thriller that has the adrenaline pumping from the very first page.

A crash brings an unsafe building crashing to the ground.  Many are trapped and injured including Helen Brook.  She is pulled out of the rubble barely alive with extensive injuries.  Luckily she survives but with PTSD.  With the compensation she turns her home into a treatment centre offering alternative care. 

Everybody loves Helen but someone is watching her.  Problem is everyone thinks it is her PTSD that is making her paranoid.  But is it?

A nemesis from Nikki and Joseph’s past returns to the area.  Stephen Cox is evilness personified and the Police are determined to take him out of circulation as is the Godfather of the Carbrook estate.

The team is overstretched and understaffed in particular Nikki and as they try to juggle themselves to be in more than one place at once the potential for someone to be harmed reaches dangerous levels.

An absolute belter of a read that I couldn’t put down.  I love this series each book we find there is more to learn about the characters as they gain depth and I get more invested in the series.

Brilliant read.

Captive on the Fens

The return of an evil villain plus the discovery of a girl’s body with horrendous injuries and Nikki and her team are back on the hunt to keep the Fens safe.

The girl had been kept captive for some time and was abused and tortured over the course of her captivity.  Once again the team are reeling at the evilness that resides among the beauty and peacefulness of the Fens.

They have no clues just an anklet with a name that may or may not be hers, no motive and no clues.  Jessie joins the team.  Her fiancé Graham, disappeared on his way to work.  Despite him being a Policeman no trace was ever found.  The general feeling is that he was killed and his body disposed of but Jessie thinks he is still alive.

The story is told from several perspectives.  We hear from a girl who has been in captivity for some time and from a man who is obviously a captor and from the team.  The twists and turns we expect from Joy Ellis are in abundance in this story as we follow the team as they unravel a tangled web of secrets and lies that reach back in time. 

An absolutely stunning read and a great addition to a very addictive series.

5 stars from me
