Publisher's Summary

The Fens are burning, and Detective Nikki Galena faces a cat-and-mouse battle with a killer arsonist. Someone is lighting fires. First they target homes and businesses, but then a body is found at one of the crime scenes. More fires are lit. And at each one a single person dies. But the victims have led spotless lives, and apparently there's no connection between them. 

Meanwhile, the town is facing a very peculiar threat from a group of sinister Satanists led by a charismatic businessman. Who is burning with anger, and can Nikki stop them before anyone else dies?

Doesn’t disappoint

I thought perhaps I might be finished with Nikki and Joseph, but I was wrong. I also thought I had the culprit figured out half way through this book. I was wrong again. Appreciate the way the layers of the characters are revealed, and especially the 2 main characters. And Rory is perfectly played. Thoroughly enjoyed it beginning to end and on to the next one. I may even listen to all of them a second time.

I enjoyed the characters and story line. The author takes us on a journey of twists and turns ending in a most delightful way

Another Great One

I've read the Jackman series and now working my way through this one. I've never done series before. Enjoy her writing so much. Joy Ellis is 5* for sure

Another great Joy Ellis book

I think I have listened to 18 Joy Ellis' books. Loved them all. I like how the characters carry through from book to book.

Fabius o far in the series

I enjoy the whole series but this one was my favorite so far as the story line was more removed from the main characters yet brought the main characters into the story in a stronger way. Cannot think of a different way to say what I mean without giving the storyline away!

Joy Ellis did it again!

Fire on the Fens, written by Joy Ellis and narrated by Henrietta Meire, was a wonderful story again! The characters were interesting, the twists and turns in the story kept me going, and the relationships between characters kept me emotionally involved. Joy Ellis did it again! So I must go on to Book 10: Darkness on the Fens!

Riveting listening

I’m a truck driver and Ms Ellis’s books make the long haul seem shorter, great way to while away the hours without breaking concentration on the road.

I'm a fan of this series, but...

...FIRE ON THE FENS is disappointing compared to the first eight novels in the series.

Gripping Story

I thoroughly enjoy this series, and this book is one of the best. The narrator is wonderful, and brings the characters to life. I can't wait for the next book.

This series keeps getting better

I enjoyed the first several books as well, but I think this one is my favorite to date. I love the setting in the Fens, the characters, and the mystery. (I did figure out whodunnit early enough to be a little impatient with the characters lagging behind, but there was so much to come that I didn’t mind too much.) There were some interesting diversions and red herrings, too.

Overall, highly recommended for anyone who enjoys British police procedurals. Henrietta Meire is a superb narrator. I’m really enjoying hearing the regional Lincolnshire accents.

satanic worship

I can’t give an honest review of the story because anything with satanic worship is a big turn off for me. When I realized the antagonists were involved in this I tried to listen and give it a fair shot but it was just too creepy and I stopped listening. Remainder of series has been good, though I like Ms Ellis’ Jackman series much better, so hopefully this is just a one-off.

Captivating and suspenseful!

I love that Nikki and Joseph are an item and hopefully Cameron will be their new boss for a long while!
The narrator really brings the story to live with all the characters and plots!
Another wonderfully written book by Joy Ellis!

Another Winner

The story continues on and doesn't let you down. Ellis keeps you engaged and Meire continues to narrate the book exceptionally.
