Summary

A series of gruesome murders on the Lincolnshire fens. An old enemy from the past. A deadly game of cat and mouse.

The peaceful little village of Saltern-le-Fen is buzzing with excitement. A film crew are in town, shooting a new TV police drama, Fen Division Five. But Detective Jackman receives a disturbing tip-off that something is wrong.

Detective Marie Evans meanwhile is looking forward to moving into her dream home. But there’s no time to celebrate. The naked body of a young man is found at the river’s edge. He’s been strangled, his skin massaged in expensive oil.

Two days later, another handsome young man is discovered in a shallow lake. His throat cut. He too is lathered in body oil.

At the same time, an arch enemy from the past emerges. A master manipulator who has his sights on Jackman and Evans. From behind the bars of his high security prison, he’s putting the finishing touches to a devastating revenge plan.

As they hunt a brutal killer, Jackman and Evans are themselves hunted in a deadly game of cat and mouse – and the stakes could not be higher.

Another superb instalment

This series has had me captivated. I feel deeply connected to all the characters of Jackman’s team and as the story unfolds the sense of fear is palpable. As ever, Richard Armitage’s narration is second to none and he captures the essence of every single character to perfection. I can’t wait for the next instalment. Joy Ellis is masterful.

So good that I just couldn’t stop listening in bed and it was 3:45am before I made myself stop as I had work in the morning. Loved it well done

I always enjoy Joy Ellis’s books but this was particularly gripping with the added bonus of Richard Armitage’s perfect narration.

Excellent listen

I’ve not written a review before but this book deserves one.
I’ve listened to all the previous series and this one stands out.
It’s so well written and excellently narrated it deserves more than 5 stars.
I will be keeping my eyes and ears open for the next in the series (hopefully).

Fantastic series.

Another great read in a fantastically well written series of books.
Characters you love and characters you love to hate.
Such a brilliant narrator, too.
I can highly recommend.
