Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Fantastic series"

    I love the books, though my husband and I laugh when the characters “puff out their cheeks”, must be a British thing. Can’t wait for the new book and we adore the narrator. She nails it!

    "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.

    "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.
