    Not only was this a good story, but the locale (the Fens) was different and interesting and enhanced the story. Never having heard of the area, it had me running to Google to learn about it. I very much like police procedurals in general and those in England in particular. The central characters, Nikki and Joseph, are both out of the norm as well. Yes, there is the usual initial mistrust of the new partner and the eventual bonding, but the

    I read mostly European mysteries and this one was only mediocre. It does have a decent plot, but the writing is not so great and the dialogue at times is very cliched. So are the two main characters. The brisk, argumentative young

    Gets a little boring at the beginning, hence 4 stars instead of 5. The slow pace was mostly due to repeated examples of how unlikable the female main character was. I probably would've stopped reading when I felt I'd had enough of her attitude, but one of the reviews I'd read said it would get better so I stuck it out. I stll think the story would have been better without this weak attempt to make the character interesting. The s

    This is the first book in the Fens series. Since I was given the impression that the very last book was the first, I've already read it. So I experienced some trepidation that if I started from the very beginninng, I'd be disappointed. Not so! This author hit her stride from the very first page, and I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series. DI Galena and DS Easter are sympathetic characte

    I thought this was really enjoyable easy read. It came up as an recommendation and really appealed to me as I holiday regularly in East Anglia so know the feel of that area well.

    The feeling on menace on the fens at night and in the estate where quite a lot of the action takes place are both developed well.

    Glad to have discovered the Fens series of books. Really enjoyed this , the first in the series. The story introduces DI Galena and Sergeant Easter. As with so many fictional detectives, they are both troubled individuals, damaged by their past. Both back stories are interesting and the characters are well developed in the book. Kn

    Enjoyed the story line and the connection between DI Nikki Galena, Joseph and her team. Very atmospheric and descriptive of the fens and area, must admit I have never been but could clearly see it in my imagination. I like the frisson between Nikki and Joseph the spark of romance that could or couldn't be there but is left on the back burner
