Avis de l'équipe

"Put your headphones on, turn your Wi-Fi off, clear your diary and take a ride with DI Jackman and DS Evans. As you listen to Their Lost Daughters they will start to feel like old friends, and you will live through their triumphs and traumas on the trail of one of the most wantonly twisted crimes ever to grace an audiobook. The book is harrowing at times but never overdone. It's as heartfelt as it is disturbing. In the run up to the final, brilliantly executed twist, it is almost clinically impossible to press the pause button." - Gabriel, Audible Editor 

"Checking my home for intruders isn't one of my standard nighttime rituals, but after listening to Their Lost Daughters, I found myself doing just that. In this chilling narrative, Joy Ellis expertly plays on your deepest fears and delivers a satisfying, shocking twist that no crime aficionado could predict. It bears all the hallmarks of great TV shows like Broadchurch, and with powerful narration from Richard Armitage you genuinely feel part of the action as the hunt to find the killer intensifies. I urge you to experience it in all its glory." - Jess, Audible Editor 

Description

Introducing Audible Exclusive Their Lost Daughters, the first in the Jackman and Evans crime series, written by Joy Ellis, Audible's breakthrough crime author of 2018.

Deep in the muddy fields of the Lincolnshire Fens, a teenage girl is found wandering, delirious, claiming to have been drugged at a party. Metres away, the drowned body of another girl is found on an isolated beach. And all this on a small stretch of land where, nearly 10 years ago, the shocking disappearance of a young girl remains an open case. 

For DI Rowan Jackman and DS Marie Evans, the pressure is on to bring the perpetrators of these shocking crimes to justice. Are the crimes linked? Who are these young girls? And what on earth is going on under the green and pastured land of the Lincolnshire Fens? 

An Amazon Kindle number one best seller, Their Lost Daughters by Joy Ellis is performed by the incredible Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) and available exclusively at Audible. Be prepared for your pulse to rise and your nights to be disturbed as our breakthrough crime author of 2018 weaves her dark web of mystery. Perfect for fans of Sarah A. Denzil, LJ Ross and Denzil Meyrick. 

About the author 

Joy Ellis is not your ordinary newcomer to crime fiction. She started work in the 1960s as an apprentice florist in Covent Garden before opening her own flower shop in Lincolnshire. Later in life, she began to consider a career change towards crime writing and attended a workshop in Greece led by Sue Townsend, author of Adrian Mole. Ellis has now left the flowers behind and dedicates her life to writing gritty crime thrillers set in the Fens, where she lives with her police officer partner. 

About the narrator 

Richard Armitage is a British actor known for his vast array of film, television and theatre work, including The Hobbit, Spooks and The Crucible. His trademark baritone voice has earned him recognition, too, through his performance on many notable audiobooks as well as in TV and radio show narration. 

His audiobook credits include The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde featured in The Monster Collection, David Copperfield, and Angela Carter's The Bloody Chamber, and this experience shines through in Armitage's gripping performance of Their Lost Daughters

Correct mais sans plus...

Et pourtant, je trouve habituellement que la narration de Richard Armitage est parfaite. Ce n'est pas que ce n'est pas le cas ici, mais j'ai eu un mal fou à rentrer dans l'histoire et à y rester. Peut-être que je ne suis pas fan des romans policiers et que les différents accents n'aident pas (c'est sûr que je ne suis pas du tout du Lincolnshire) mais je n'ai pas trouvé cela beaucoup mieux qu'une "anale" série policière. J'ai quand même acheté la suite, pour la voix, mais il me reste à l'écouter...

Really Good

This is my first foray into Joy Ellis territory and I must admit that THEIR LOST DAUGHTERS is a novel that demonstrates her ability to provide character rich and atmospheric crime fiction that places her reader smack in the center of the action. Set in and around the Lincolnshire fens (an area in England that sounds amazingly like the Louisiana/Mississippi River delta in the United States) DAUGHTERS is a chilling book filled with unusual plot twists and deception that literally compels you to keep reading. Featuring the overworked team of officers of the Fenland police department and their simultaneous investigation of two different cases, there are as many story lines and personalities at work here as the threads in a fine tapestry. Evil abounds in this tale and revealing even a portion of the story line might reduce the enjoyment of potential readers and ruin the surprises generated by Ms. Ellis’s creative and inventive writing skills. Richard Armitage was amazing with the delivery of the story

Excellent Introduction to a New British Detective Series

I really enjoy a well-written British police procedural as the good ones are focused on solving a mystery without all the guns, car chases and gratuitous sex that saturate the American crime stories. I was happy to stumble on this series by Joy Ellis. The main characters are decent people who are trying to do a difficult job. The mystery is complex and well developed. The narrator is fabulous and brings each character to life. A five star listen for me and I’ll be ordering the rest of the series hoping they are equally good.

Author Joy Ellis never disappoints!!

THEIR LOST DAUGHTERS is the 10th novel by Joy Ellis I have listened to and reviewed at Audible. Joy Ellis is lauded as "Audible's breakthrough crime author of 2018". I hope Audible is correct and this wonderful author now gets the attention the quality of her work deserves. For those familiar with her DI Nikki Galena eight novel series this novel is set in the Fens, an area on the east coast of England about 50 miles northeast of London that was reclaimed from the sea and marshes several centuries ago, like Ellis' other modern detective novels. The plot is an excellent one with two new protagonists (Jackman and Evans) introduced. Narration by Richard Armitage is excellent but not quite as good in my opinion as that of Henrietta Meire who narrated the Nikki Galena series. The next two audio books in the Jackman and Evans series will be released by Audible October. Highly recommended!

Gripping from the start

Joy Ellis has written a gripping tale. A parent's worse nightmare, a cautionary tale for teens testing freedom and a policeman's haunting case...all these are woven into a tale of mystery, generational pain and institutionalize corruption. When you first meet Jackman and Evans, you can't help but be touched by their passion for justice and their dogged determination to find the killer or killers before another daughter becomes a victim. You know these coppers and their team will never allow these girls to become statistics. The names of the missing and abused become central to the story as it twists and turns through the plot. You feel the frustration and anger of the police and of the parents. You smell the salty air and hear the moans carried on the wind across the Fens. Something terribly wrong permeates the landscape and Jackman and Evans won't rest until they have the answers. Richard Armitage captures your imagination with his excellent performance. His talent for voices is just wonderful. Each voice becomes so familiar, you always know who is speaking. The characters move, breathe, love, rage within the context of the story and you are right in the middle of it all. As this is a thoroughly British tale with thoroughly British expressions, what better narrator could have been chosen to sweep you away than Richard? I have already pre-purchased the next two books due out in October. There is obviously more to this story...

Disappointed

I have really liked Ellis's Fens series with Nikki Galena and crew - good plots, characters with depth. This one, "Their Lost Daughters" doesn't have much plot but is more just a fleshed out animation of the awfulness of kidnap, abuse and killing but WORST is that Ellis has gone off the deep end with overblown emotionalism - like a soap opera. If you like soap opera you'll probably like this. If she'd had an editor other than Audible - the editor would probably have pointed this out to Ellis or just not published it. None of the Fens books bulged out this way - they contained and expressed strong emotion but kept it contained within the body of the whole - so it was very effective and an important contributing element. Neither Jackman nor Evans are interesting. Audible has made much ado about Armitage's sexy deep resonant voice - which it IS and I'm sure he IS a good actor but in this reading he uses his voice to only further the over-done emotionalism. He also puts pauses in his pacing which, on stage, are exactly right but which in reading a book are distracting and irritating. I don't know what Ellis was thinking . . . but, for her sake, I don't think this book should have been published.

Don't understand all the hype.

The only thing that made me finish this book was the narration. I found the book boring and my mind wandered often. If I have to hear Jackman tell his team to "get to bed and rest because things are going to get worse" one more time...

Boring and way longer than necessary

This was very boring and long and too many characters going in too many different directions and tied up rather sloppy in the end

Darker than I expected

The subject matter is more disturbing than I thought it would be, and I have read/ listened to my share of mystery and suspense. Had I known that, I probably wouldn’t have chosen it. At the same time, the author presents it in a thoughtful way without glamorizing it. I did skip through parts I couldn’t listen to. I thought the narrator was excellent, especially with so many characters. And there are a lot of characters.

Not worth the credit

You will get a “police procedural” but not a very good one. The main characters make you yawn.

A perfect crime story

I think this story is just perfect! There are many unexpectable twists and till the end you had no idea who the responsible people are! The narrator is easy to understand even as a german and you can distinguish the different characters easy through the different types of speaking.

Sehr konstruiert, langweiliger Sprecher

Ich will nichts von der Story verraten, aber sie wirkt sehr aufgesetzt und bemüht konstruiert. Dazu kommt Küchenpsychologie und klischeehafte Figuren. Der Sprecher macht die Sache leider noch langweiliger!

Too close to the Nikki Galena Series

I was disappointed in the nearly copied story and script of the other books written by Joy Ellis- nothing new there

Brilliantly unusual thriller, likeable characters

This thriller sends you through the maze of not one but three odd cases, that the able and likeable team around DI Jackman (best boss ever!) manage to solve, but not unscarred. One can almost hear the wind blow over the rough lansdscape, smell the stale air in the offices after a hard day's work, be amazed, repulsed, shellshocked by the team's finds. As usual performed to perfection by Richard Armitage, who gives every character their own unique lives, making the best of every word and scene.

Fesselnd!

So spannend, dass ich es praktisch "durchhörte". Der Midlands/Lincolnshire-Dialekt war zwar anfänglich etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber Richard Armitage hat das Buch so gut gelesen, dass ich mich schnell daran gewöhnte. Die nächste Folge der Serie habe ich soeben runtergeladen und freue mich auf das was kommt.

Absolut spannend!

Die Erzählerstimme ist erstmal gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber nach 30 Minuten habe ich mir keine bessere vorstellen können. Tolle Dialektnachahmung. Die Geschichte ist spannend, etwas verstörend und führt streckenweise an der Nase herum. Kauf nicht bereut.

Flacher Sprecher, nicht absehbare Auflösung

Die Auflösung ist in sich schlüssig, aber lange nicht absehbar. Einiges an der ,Polizeiarbeit‘ war mir zu einfach, es gab kaum Hindernisse bei der Ermittlung, daher nur wenige wirklich spannende Abschnitte, obwohl ich schon wissen wollte, wie es weiter geht. Allerdings hat mich die Stimme geradezu abgebracht von der Story - Armitage liest fast emotionslos und flach, mir gefällt es besser, wenn der Sprecher jedem wichtigen Protagonisten eine besondere Klangfärbung gibt - allerdings waren hier sehr viele Personen, in einem Buch kann man in solchen Fällen zurückblättern, beim Hörbuch kommt man schneller durcheinander...

attention: you will get lost...in a positive way of course!

One of the best stories I’ve listened to ever: beautifully written, extraordinary setting, a story line that gets you hooked right from the beginning. Performed by my favorite narrator and Master of Voices Richard Armitage...just can‘t wait to hear what‘s next for DI Jackman & DS Evans!!!
