Summary

A skeleton is found in a shallow grave in the churchyard. But this was not an official burial. 
The victim was murdered decades ago. At the same time, Detective Nikki Galena and her team are investigating the brutal slaying of local businesswoman Madeline Prospero. She was a member of an exclusive and secretive drinking club called The Briar Patch. But they've got no suspects and no one is telling them the truth. 
Meanwhile, the buried skeleton leads them on a trail to the village of Quintin Eaudyke. This is a troubled place. In the late 70s and 80s a reign of terror and abuse was unleashed on the close-knit population. When more women from The Briar Patch come under threat, Nikki faces a race against time to stop more murders.
Full of twists and turns, this is a crime thriller that will keep you in suspense until its heart-stopping conclusion.

One of my favorite police procedural series!

All novels in the DI Nikki Galena series by British author Joy Ellis are excellent. Buried on the Fens continues Ms. Ellis' record of only releasing great novels. All 7 of the series novels are standalone and can be listened to in any order. The setting is in an area of the east coast of England north of London known as the fens. (A fen is a low marshy area that frequently floods. During the 17th century steps were taken including building dikes to turn the area into agricultural land.)

I have nothing to add to the excellent publisher's summary except to comment that an unusual forensic tool was used to identify the killer. British actress Henrietta Meire narrates this series in the clipped accent of the fens area. Her narration never disappoints.

Great combination of author & narrator

Much like the work of Peter Grainger & Timothy Hallinan, I jump at the next book Joy Ellis writes. As with the rest of the books in this series, Ms Ellis does an excellent job of building characters I care about. Henrietta Meier does a fabulous job and distinctly narrates each character without “blending” vocal traits, a genuine feat and something many narrators don’t manage as well. I’m glad the producers have continued to work with Ms Meier with the works of Joy Ellis. Now if only Audible will get the rest of Ms Ellis’s works....
