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.

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.

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

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

Fire Within Bested the Fire Outside

Another fascinating detective story. Fire is both literally and figuratively described. The story shows the destructive, cleansing, transformative, & inspirational aspects of "fire". The obvious destruction in the structures and those effected with a loss is clearly seen. Sparked within each character is the determination and the internal questions about life. Law enforcement runs toward danger,and make personal sacrifices everyday. That is the law enforcement I know. Love the cross over characters and stories from Joy Ellis's Jackman/Evans series. Great narration as always.

Murder by Fire

Book nine in the series finds DI Nikki Galena and DS Joseph Easter on the hunt for an arsonist that is a killer. With a new acting Superintendent, Cam Walker, Nikki and Joseph's personal relationship seems to not be an issue at the police station, (as they had feared, until they learned that Cam would be replacing their new Super, who was recovering from an accident). Helping with the investigation is retired veteran fire investigator, John Carson, who is instrumental in assisting the team. I've come to love the characters in the series, Nikki, Joseph, Rory (the quirky forensic pathologist), Yvonne, Cat, Dave, and Nikki's mother, Eve and her friends. The killer turns out to be no one I would have suspected, and the path to finding the suspect was a chilling one. Great tale and excellent resolution. I hope there will be more in the series.

Another good installment

I always look forward to the next installment in the DI Nikki Galena series. Joy Ellis and Henrietta Meire are a winning combo.
