His nickname Holy Joe belies his former life as a soldier He has an estranged daughter who blames him for everything that went wrong with their family Their adversary is a ruthless man who holds DI Galena responsible for his terrible disfigurement. Glad to have discovered the Fens series of books Really enjoyed this the first in the series The story introduces DI Galena and Sergeant Easter As with so many fictional detectives they are both troubled individuals damaged by their past Both back stories are interesting and the characters are well developed in the book Knowing the area of the fens the author has portrayed the area well The sometimes bleak beauty of the coast together with a town that has than its fair share of troubled young people due to socio economic reasonsI have already moved on to the second book in the series I think the series would be good for development to a TVs series Would be good to have a female detective who is not as hard as Tennyson or as eccentric as Vera but actually seems a normal female

Crime on the Fens: DI Nikki Galena, Book 1

DI Nikki Galena A the Fens PDF #197 police detective with nothing left to lose she's seen a girl die in her Crime on PDF arms and her daughter will never leave the hospital again She's gotten tough on the criminals she believes did on the Fens MOBI. I read mostly European mysteries and this one was only mediocre It does have a decent plot but the writing is not so great and the dialogue at times is very cliched So are the two main characters The brisk argumentative young female detective who has never disclosed that she has a daughter in a persistent vegetative state really and the sexy handsome ex special ops detective who never sees his ex wife or daughter Why do authors feel as if cops have to be pained dysfunctional traumatized and secretiveIn summary it wasn t a bad book but I would recommend reading Ruth Rendell Peter Robinson Henning Mankell or Stephen Booth s earlier books Superior writing

#239 this to her Too tough And now she's been given one final warning make it work with her new on the Fens DI Nikki PDF or sergeant DS Joseph Easter or she's out Her partner DS Joseph Easter is the handsome sueaky clean new member of the team But. Gets a little boring at the beginning hence 4 stars instead of 5 The slow pace was mostly due to repeated examples of how unlikable the female main character was I probably would ve stopped reading when I felt I d had enough of her attitude but one of the reviews I d read said it would get better so I stuck it out I stll think the story would have been better without this weak attempt to make the character interesting The second half was much better even wth some holes in the plot I will sample the next book and if the main character is still a jerk I won t continue the series

    Not only was this a good story, but the locale (the Fens) was different and interesting and enhanced the story. Never having heard of the area, it had me running to Google to learn about it. I very much like police procedurals in general and those in England in particular. The central characters, Nikki and Joseph, are both out of the norm as well. Yes, there is the usual initial mistrust of the new partner and the eventual bonding, but the

    Crime on the Fens came highly recommended by a fellow friend and book blogger, so I thoroughly expected to enjoy it. What surprised me a bit was just how much I did. When the book opens, Nikki Galena is a world class witch (you know what I really mean), and even though she has good reason to whirl through town like the Tasmanian Devil of Warner Brothers fame, I wasn't going to be able to put up with her if she remaine

    This is the first book in the Fens series. Since I was given the impression that the very last book was the first, I've already read it. So I experienced some trepidation that if I started from the very beginninng, I'd be

    If you like police procedurals that take place in Britain, you probably will like this book. DI Nikki Galena is given a new sergeant to work with. DI Nikki even though she is a good inspector has ticked off the top brass. She goes off the rails at times. It is last chance for her new sergeant too.

    There is murder,

    I thought this was really enjoyable easy read. It came up as an recommendation and really appealed to me as I holiday regularly in East Anglia so know the feel of that area well.

    Glad to have discovered the Fens series of books. Really enjoyed this , the first in the series. The story introduces DI Galena and Sergeant Easter. As with so many fictional detectives, they are both troubled individuals, damaged by their past. Both back stories are interesting and the characters are well developed in the book. Knowing the area of the fens, the author has portrayed the area well. The sometimes bleak b

    D.I Nikki Galena doesn't always play by the rules. Because of things that have happened privately and personally she walks a fine line. But now she has been issued an ultimatum and has to work with a new D.S., Joseph Easter who has a one mont

    Enjoyed the story line and the connection between DI Nikki Galena, Joseph and her team. Very atmospheric and descriptive of the fens and area, must admit I have never been but could clearly see it in my imagination. I like the frisson between Nikki and Joseph the spark of romance that could or couldn't be there but is left on the back burner as both know it would spoil their working relationship. Nikki is one feisty lad

    This series is becoming one of my favourites, always a fast paced story with unexpected twists, likeable characters (except the bad guys) and atmospheric descriptions of the Fens. The language is very strong sometimes but even I could not expect an overworked policeman to describe a murdering drug dealer as 'a very naughty
