    Description

    A skeleton is found in a shallow grave in the churchyard. But this was not an official burial. 

    The victim was murdered decades ago. At the same time, Detective Nikki Galena and her team are investigating the brutal slaying of local businesswoman Madeline Prospero. She was a member of an exclusive and secretive drinking club called The Briar Patch. But they've got no suspects and no one is telling them the truth. 

    Meanwhile, the buried skeleton leads them on a trail to the village of Quintin Eaudyke. This is a troubled place. In the late 70s and 80s a reign of terror and abuse was unleashed on the close-knit population. When more women from The Briar Patch come under threat, Nikki faces a race against time to stop more murders.

    Full of twists and turns, this is a crime thriller that will keep you in suspense until its heart-stopping conclusion.

    One of my favorite police procedural series!

    All novels in the DI Nikki Galena series by British author Joy Ellis are excellent. Buried on the Fens continues Ms. Ellis' record of only releasing great novels. All 7 of the series novels are standalone and can be listened to in any order. The setting is in an area of the east coast of England north of London known as the fens. (A fen is a low marshy area that frequently floods. During the 17th century steps were taken including building dikes to turn the area into agricultural land.)

    I have nothing to add to the excellent publisher's summary except to comment that an unusual forensic tool was used to identify the killer. British actress Henrietta Meire narrates this series in the clipped accent of the fens area. Her narration never disappoints.

    Great combination of author & narrator

    Much like the work of Peter Grainger & Timothy Hallinan, I jump at the next book Joy Ellis writes. As with the rest of the books in this series, Ms Ellis does an excellent job of building characters I care about. Henrietta Meier does a fabulous job and distinctly narrates each character without “blending” vocal traits, a genuine feat and something many narrators don’t manage as well. I’m glad the producers have continued to work with Ms Meier with the works of Joy Ellis. Now if only Audible will get the rest of Ms Ellis’s works....

    WARNING: Lots of Cruelty in This One

    I love the Nikki Galena series, I love the narration, all of that. I just want to warn readers that this particular story has a lot of cruelty to animals in it (not to mention some really sick cruelty to people). It's important to the story, wound throughout, and made it impossible for me to just read the story. If I'd known this in advance, I would have given this book a miss.

    So, my rating: 1 star for the business with the animals; 5 stars for the quality of the book otherwise.

    violence against women and children

    I started listening to the Fens series and with each successive book the violence against Women and Children became more cruel more graphic and with this edition add animal cruelty. I belive it is time for the author to seek professional assistance rather than sending her characters there

    Another great Nikki Galena mystery

    DI Nikki Galena, Detective Sergeant Joe Easter, and the team are juggling two murders--a recent, bloody murder of a prominent, successful, local businesswoman, and the newly discovered, unofficial grave of a man believed to have drowned himself thirty years ago.

    It's not good, especially since they're understaffed--and moreover, Joseph is being stressed and distracted by his ex-wife, Laura.

    The businesswoman, Madeline Prospero, was a member of a secretive drinking club, the Briar Patch, and this proves to be a problem. Many of the women are lesbians, and very prominent and well-connected--and still in the closet. Legalizing same-sex marriage didn't make sexism and homophobia disappear. Nikki is under orders to be very careful with all of them, and not to question some of them at all.

    The thirty-year-old skeleton unearthed in the church graveyard is surely less urgent, right?

    Except strange things start happening around his grave. The children he was believed to have molested, all those years ago, are still improbably affected; not one of them seems to have moved past it at all.

    Then more murders happen, some connected to the Briar Patch, some seemingly related to the old skeleton. Are the two cases connected?

    This is seventh in a series, but I think it can be followed and enjoyed out of order. Nikki and Joseph, Joseph and his ex-wife and daughter, and the various team members continue to grow and develop in their relationships. It's a rich, lived-in community of people, and the story moves and is interesting.

    Recommended.

    I bought this audiobook.

    Love this series

    I like the setting, characters, and narration. I think the series is generally great overall. Thought that the lesbian aspect in this book was unnecessary and merely follows the current trend in pop culture. I am moving on to the next book in the series.

    Returned It!

    While the story was tolerable, although a bit convoluted, the narrator was unbearable! Her version of the male characters was a monotone. In addition, she seems in a big hurry to tell the story, leaving no time to savor it. I’ll stick to narrators like Gildart Jackson, Antonio Ballerina, Napoleon Ryan and Rosalyn Landir, to name a few of my favorites. They tell a story as if each word is a treasure. What a disappointment this hurried narration of a (likely good) book proved to be!

    Disappointed...

    The first few books of this series were decent, but the last few books have had a lazy, formulaic feel to them.
    This story has a subplot about a club comprised of lesbians in positions of power within the community. The handling of this subject was so awkward and self-conscious that it was hard to listen to. Has Joy Ellis ever actually met a gay person? Did she really go there with Rory Wilkinson, the gay pathologist, daydreaming about being a florist and tooling around in a pink van?
    Add to that, clichéd dialogue, bad prose, and too many characters, and the whole thing becomes dull and bogged down.
    Henrietta Meire does a great job of voicing the many characters, to her credit.

    I have enjoyed for the most part, the others in this series but this one? Oy. What a homophobic mess.

    Joy Ellis Doesn't Disappoint

    Again another book full of twists and turns. Joy keeps you from putting the book down or stop listening. Henrietta Meire continues to do a great job narrating. Now on to book 8.

    Really really good

    Fast pace story with lots of twist and turns. Quite scary and then yet again the ‚team‘ works it out. It is a page turner and was almost impossible to put down, big recommendation u
