FROM TWO-MILLION SELLING AUTHOR, JOY ELLIS, COMES ONE OF THE MOST EAGERLY AWAITED CRIME THRILLERS OF 2020. A DERELICT COTTAGE HIDDEN IN A COPSE OF TREES. A MISSING GIRL WHOSE BODY WAS NEVER FOUND. HAS HER KILLER RETURNED? Detective Joseph Easter's daughter discovers a cottage hidden in some trees on a large fenland farm. Someone has been living there. The farm-owner's wife has been receiving sinister pagan artefacts, including a witch's knife. Are they some sort of warning or message? Joseph and his daughter search the cottage and find an old satchel. Inside are photos of a beautiful girl, Jennifer Cowley. She went missing fifteen years ago. She'd been stalked by a young man, who was convicted of her murder, even though her body was never found. WHEN DI NIKKI GALENA EXAMINES THE COTTAGE, SHE FINDS SOMETHING FAR WORSE. And in the satchel is a more recent photo of a girl who looks just like Jennifer. THE MAN WHO KILLED JENNIFER IS RECENTLY OUT OF PRISON. HAS HE STRUCK AGAIN? At the same time, DC Cat Cullen and Dave Harris are trying to get evidence against a man who preys on widowed older women. Vernon Deacon is seemingly a pillar of society, with very influential friends. But his victims aren't believed, so their job is not easy. Full of twists and turns, this is a crime thriller that will keep you turning the pages until the heart-stopping ending. This is book eleven of the international best-selling books featuring Nikki Galena.

Barbara THE DETECTIVE DI Nikki Galena: A police detective with nothing left to lose, she's seen a girl die in her arms and her own family destroyed. She's tough on criminals but fiercely loyal to her team. HER PARTNER DS Joseph Easter is the squeaky-clean member of the team. But his nickname "Holy Joe" belies his former life as a soldier. He has a daughter and an ex-wife who wants his attention. THE SETTING The Lincolnshire Fens: great open skies brood over marshes, farmland, and nature reserves. It is not easy terrain for the Fenland Constabulary to police, due to the distances between some of the remote fen villages, the dangerous and often misty lanes, and the poor telephone coverage. There are still villages where the oldest residents have never set foot outside their own farmland and a visit to the nearest town is a major event. But it has a strange airy beauty to it, and above it all are the biggest skies you've ever seen. DISCOVER YOUR NEXT FAVOURITE MYSTERY SERIES NOW.
