Description

Jackman and Evans are back in the latest gripping thriller by Joy Ellis, performed by the incomparable Richard Armitage. 

Jackman’s sister-in-law Sarah disappears to London and throws herself into the river. What drove her to this? She was a woman with a seemingly happy homelife and two beloved sons. DI Jackman and DI Evans dig into Sarah’s life. And Jackman realises he knew almost nothing about his sister-in-law’s past. 

Then, they discover a woman in a neighbouring village died in similar circumstances. What is the connection to a convicted murderer whose family are convinced he is innocent? Who is really pulling the strings?

Another winner from Joy Ellis!

Just as with her nine novel DI Nikki Galena series British author Joy Ellis has another wonderful series modern detective with Jackman and Evans. The Guilty Ones is a fine addition to the Jackman and Evans series. Actor Richard Armitage does a nice job of narrating, but I much prefer the narrations of Henrietta Meire due to her Fens British accent compared to the generic British accent of Armitage. In any case the modern detective series by Joy Ellis are always worthwhile.

Good . . . But Not Quite AS Good

Book Four in the Jackman and Evans Series is a good one, but in my opinion doesn’t quite stand up to the others in the series so far. Jackman’s family is hit hard when his sister-in-law, Sarah commits suicide by drowning herself in the river. But according to everyone who knew her, she was a happily married wife and mother to two young boys. Questions arise, however, when a similar thing happens to another woman. Jackman’s brother, James, is overwrought and not much help in solving the case, or in caring for his young sons. With the help of Orac (the computer wizard downstairs) Marie Evans and Jackman look into Sarah’s past and discover a lot of secrets. When the suicides continue, it’s a race to connect the dots and to keep Jackman’s family safe. One thing I liked about this book is learning more about Rowan Jackman’s family, his parents and background. The conclusion wasn’t as satisfying as most. But I will certainly continue the series.

I loved it

I had been waiting impatiently for this audiobook release and it was well worth the wait. I love this author’s books and this one is no exception.

The story is twisted and leaves many trails for the reader’s mind to follow if one wants to “play detective.” Personally, I like to let the story play out and have Jackson and Evans and the team work it out. We know who-done-it fairly early on but then there’s the drama and suspense of what will happen next. The character development is first rate, as usual for Joy Ellis.

Richard Armitage is a delightful narrator and gives a tremendous performance. I did find the denouement a bit unrewarding and disappointing. But, overall, one of the best books of 2019.

Picking up this book was like a great visit with dear friends. I love the way Joy Ellis creates thrillers with characters that you root for. I highly recommend this book and. any of this author's other series. I. won't spoil the story but I will say that it is worth a credit.

Another mind bending romp into Joy Ellis' world.

I wish there were more Jackman & Evans novel series out there and Richard was on Joy's retainer. They are awesome tales and he has really developed the team character's adding an investment level for the listener . Smart, cunning & twisted I can't get enough.

Fabulous book in continuing series

I LOVE Richard Armitage’s narration! He is such s skilled narrator. I loved the twists and turns of the plot and the interaction of the main characters, who for the most part are members of Jackman’s team. Thank goodness the author does not fall into the hackneyed plot outline that dictates that one of the team be a jerk and a traitor. I am weary of that. This is a wonderful book and I look forward to the next in the series.

I hope this series never ends.....

Once again an intriguing and fast paced book by Joy Ellis narrated by the fabulous Richard Armistead! I seriously try to pace myself but I end up binge listening. This kind of leaves an opening for the possibility of a continuation but then you never know about those things. I certainly hope so and I hope there are more of the Jackman Evans books.

Großartig

Wie schade, dass die Story schon wieder vorbei ist! Wann kommt die nächste?
Vielschichtig, nicht zu schnell durchschaubar, außerdem wundervolle Stimme, wie immer.
