Buried on the Fens

Buried on the Fens is the seventh in the Fens series by Joy Ellis featuring DI Nikki Galena and DS Joseph Easter. I have to admit to being biased as I have been a fan right from the start.  Although the novels can be read in isolation, they make more sense if read in order.

This is a complex story that eventually links two recent murders with a skeleton unofficially buried in a churchyard many years before.

Nikki’s team have to break through a wall of silence to reach the truth.  My only criticism is the very large number of characters, which I found quite confusing at times, otherwise I would have given it five stars.

Joy paints a vivid picture of the Fens and the difficulties involved in policing such a vast landscape. Her main characters are realistically written with their troubled pasts, but they work well together as a team and support each other. I look forward to reading the next story very soon.

Many thanks to Joffe Books for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
