    Description

    A young woman's body is found in a remote barn on the Fens. Before she was killed, one of her fingers had been cut off. Who is inflicting this violence and why?

    The young woman in the barn had been kept captive for some time. And the case shows strong similarities to an unsolved murder in Derbyshire. When another woman is found alive with similar injuries, the case grows even more complicated.

    At the same time, the Fenland police have received intelligence that the ruthless criminal Freddy Carver plans to make Greenborough the hub for his new enterprise. DI Nikki Galena is desperate to track down Freddie Carver and make sure that he does not put down roots in the Fens, but finding him is not easy. And what's his connection to the kidnapped girls?

    Author Joy Ellis never disappoints!

    Captive on the Fens, Book 5 in the Detective Inspector Nikki Galena series, was released in audio this week. I'm delighted to see that there have been six ratings prior to mine. There is now only one novel in the series yet to be released in audio.. This novel is a wonderful and unusual police procedural mystery. Henrietta Meire does a great job of narrating all of the On the Fens novels. I very highly recommend this series.

    The rest of this review is a discussion of the Fens. Having as a US citizen lived in England The Fens is one of the areas I found most interesting.

    The Fens , also called Fenlands, is a 1500 square mile area of the English North Sea coast approximately 50 miles northeast of London (it is about 20 miles north northeast of Cambridge). There are also references in Captive on the Fens to Fenland which is a 200 square mile political unit of the Fens located entirely in Cambridge County (Cambridgeshire). The Fens is part of 4 counties. Much of the Fens is below sea level and was flooded with every North Sea high tide prior to the first successful attempts in the early 19th century to use embankments to tame the high tides. River embankments are also used to prevent flooding. The Fens is approximately the same latitude as Amsterdam.

    The word fen comes from the designation of a specific type of marshland. The history of the area goes back to pre-Roman times.

    Dead young women & gangsters with unknown motives

    DS Jospeh Easter's daughter, Tamsin, is about to marry Niles, a young detective constable with the Greenborough police force. Freddie Carver, a vicious criminal boss formerly based in London and more recently hanging out in Spain, is apparently in Greenborough and planning to stay. Joseph and DI Nikki Galena are determined to catch him before he becomes a fixture in their district. Two dead young women have turned up, both apparently held prisoner and tortured for some time before being killed and dumped.

    And because their lives aren't exciting enough yet, a young man storms into the station demanding that finally, once and for all, they find his missing twin sister, who is believed to have simply run off, which is the right of any adult to do. He's certain she didn't, and is in danger.

    There's a lot going on here, and some outstanding plot threads from previous books get more attention here. There are dangerous signs that hardnosed Nikki might be mellowing a tiny bit, duty takes Cat into Derbyshire, where she meets a detective sergeant she might have a future with. Joseph's ex-wife arrives in town for the upcoming wedding, and might be a source of future trouble. Nikki's biological mother, on the other hand, may be turning into a real asset.

    The plot is excellent as always, but, also as always, the real reward here is the ongoing development of the characters as they continue to live their lives while doing their challenging and dangerous jobs.

    Recommended.

    I bought this audiobook.

    Hard to believe this was published

    The story line barely hangs together, the characters are caricatures and every cliche is used--from their language to the scenes played out. It amazes me that this book made it past the editors, it is truly that bad. I am returning the book.

    Become Captive of Your Desires

    I like that this story expanded on the new relationships developed in the earlier books. The story shows the personal developments within the police team while investigating the crimes. Captive pertains to the crime and the emotional developments within the team. Another good narration and story in the series.

    Another winner!

    Joy Ellis knows how to write a book! A series of books, in fact. This is another great story with Nikki and Joseph and the cast of characters on their team. While not my favorite in the series it's still a tense and villain-filled adventure.

    I see trouble ahead for Joseph though.

    Fabulous narration! I love these audiobooks but I wish we didn't have to wait so long for them.

    SLOW

    Very slow and narrators were rather monotone. Started and stopped, listening to other books in between. Finally quit with three hours left. Can't
    recommend this one.

    Twists Turns and Turbulent Times

    Loved it-adored it, if you like crime thrillers, Nikki and Joseph are your duo to watch. Ms. Ellis has come up with more exciting and mysterious action in this story than I thought she could. Looking forward to the next installment in the series. The Narrator is very good, please do not change.

    A lot going on

    I really liked this instalment, it is a bit more complex than the previous books but all is being resolved in the end. The story is tense and develops at a good pace - and more and more Joy Ellies develops a good sense of humour that made me laugh out loud. All in all, very enjoyable
