Description

Crimebusting duo DI Jackman and DS Evans are back, solving another crime that will make your skin crawl.

Twenty years ago: a farmer and his wife are cut to pieces by a ruthless serial killer.

Now: a woman is viciously stabbed to death in the upmarket kitchen of her beautiful house on the edge of the marshes.

Then a man called Daniel Kinder walks into Saltern police station and confesses to the murder.

But DI Rowan Jackman and DS Marie Evans of the Fenland Constabulary soon discover that there is a lot more to Daniel than meets the eye. He has no memory of the first five years of his life and has a rather unusual obsession with his mother....

Full of twists and turns, this is a crime thriller that will keep you gripped until the shocking ending.

Great story, fantastic narration

This was the 2nd book that I've listed to in this series, and I do really enjoy them. Richard Armitage's narration, though, is truly wonderful. I can't say enough about how much I enjoy him. I never thought I would actually be searching out books just for the narrator, but I do that now! I will keep listening to more books in this series, because the characters and the stories have been enjoyable, certainly enough to keep me coming back for more.

The Murder's Son by Joy Ellis

read by Richard Armiitage. Richard does a fine job of reading. he changes voices so easily accents no problem. Great reader and actor.

this story of a psychological drama is excellent. Something different from the world of detective dramas. look forward to more from Joy Ellis.

Smart well paced story!

I wish I’d listened to this story first as it gives a little more background but doesn’t really matter. Great interesting story and of course fantastic narration! I hope all her books come out on audible!!

Enjoyable! With twists!

This is my first Joy Ellis book and I’ll definitely read more! The story was deep with believable characters. The narrator was fabulous. The subtle voice changes made it understandable which character was speaking. The ending had a twist which I didn’t see coming. I recommend this book to readers who enjoy a who done it with an edge!

Murder!

I can't give 5 stars to a murder story… I just can't. But giving a 4 means it was very good. I suspected a number of characters before the end. I got to the right culprit not very long before he was revealed. Many characters were very interesting and likable. The performance was very good.

Un peu meilleur que le 1er

Ou alors, j'ai réussi à plus me concentrer à l'écoute... La narration est toujours très bonne, bien sûr, et on a par moments, plus l'impression de "voir" une film que de lire un livre, grâce aux multiples voix et intonations du narrateur. A mon avis, l'histoire se suit mieux que dans le "1er" tome (qui est en fait le 2e de la série, celui-ci étant le 1er - pourquoi les avoir sortis dans cet ordre ?), j'ai d'ailleurs trouvé le coupable bien avant la fin.

Great Series

An excellent story about a police department trying to solve a serial murder case while dealing with several fragile suspects. There are several subplots which add a great deal to the story. One of the subplots would actually make a pretty good plot for another story. The two major characters are both both very easy to develop a bond with which makes the story more interesting.This book is definitely worth reading.

Richard Armitage was outstanding with the delivery of the story

DO NOT FOLLOW RECOMMENDED LISTENING ORDER

Audible totally messed this up. They recommended listening out of order, and it totally ruins the suspense, not to mention the evolution of the character's development and relationships. That said, I still really enjoyed it-- the characters are well written and even though I had the end figured out from the beginning because there is mention of the result in the 2nd book, I was still well entertained, but spent a lot of time wondering why in the world they published these out of order only to go back and discover they did not--Audible actually is the one who recommended listening out of order and for what reason I cannot fathom. It will have ruined it for many, so I sincerely hope they fix that issue ASAP.

Audible ruined this one for me.

I followed the "recommended listening order" suggested by Audible to listen to Their Lost Daughters first despite it being the second book in the Jackman and Evans series. Because of dialog between Jackman and Evans the story line of The Murder's Son was ruined !! Shame on the editorial staff for such a blunder!!

Couldn't put it down

This is another fantastic offering by Joy Ellis. It is a believable story with characters you grow to be so intimately involved with that you talk back to them while listening. I was constantly asking myself what would I do in the myriad situations presented in the plot. Would I have acted as Skye did? Would I have made the choices Daniel did? Where are the dark places in my mind capable of leading me? Then, of course, there are the choices faced by Jackman and Evans. How far to you trust your mind rather than follow your gut? The main plot is paralleled by the tale of a bent copper and a young cop trying to survive. This tale is deftly woven into to the main story to great effect.

Richard Armitage's narration grabs you and carries your through the harrowing tale with a vast range of emotion from shock, horror and disgust to heartrending compassion. His voice weaves his usual magic as he carries you deep into the hearts and minds of the characters. Congratulations to both Ms. Ellis and Mr. Armitage for another stellar project. I look forward to December and installment 3 of Jackman and Evans.

Glad I found this series!

I have a tendency to prefer the British murder mysteries because they seem to have more character development and fewer car chases - definitely fewer gun battles - but it’s a challenge to find some new characters that rise above the rest. Jackman and Evans are a great team and I’m happy to have discovered them. The mysteries are challenging but the characters are ones I’m enjoying getting to know. I’ve listened to 2 books in the series and will definitely listen to the rest. The narrator is fantastic. 5 stars if you like good police murder mysteries!

Ellis and Armitage Did It Again

What a spectacular audiobook. Ellis is one of the best crime novelists today. Her attention to detail, authenticity, keen development of characters, wrapped in suspense and intrigue keeps you on your toes and a "book" you "just can't put down". I binged the entire audiobook in one sitting. Armitage is narrator supreme. He makes you feel like you are literally standing there in each scene experiencing everything first hand through the eyes of each of Ellis' characters. This is more than a five star audiobook.

Great performance of a Joy Ellis mystery

Richard Armitage again performs -- rather than merely reads -- a good thriller. He makes it pop!

ALMOST as good as Lost Daughters

I love the writing, the narration (stellar!), the characters, & the relationships developed in this, the 2nd Joy Ellis (Jackman & Evans) book to which I have listened on Audible. It was only marginally (I wish I could give it 4.5 stars) less accomplished than “Their Lost Daughters”, which was a somewhat more intriguingly complex story. But this book did its job — my newfound addiction to this Ellis series continues, alive & well. Going after next book right now!
