They Disappeared- Joy Ellis-  Crime     (Jackman & Evans #7)     

DI Rowan Jackson, his DS Marie and the team are finally breathing a sigh of

relief as their nemesis has finally been put away and they can stop looking

over their shoulder as they have done for so long. An Ex copper had a new

pastime a while ago- urbexing (urban exploring) and contacts the team as a

couple of people in that community have recently gone missing but it's not

quite on their patch and don;t want to tread on any toes. A couple of calls

to friends outside the patch reveals even more secrecy over one of the sites.

When one goes missing on their doorstep things are turned up a notch.

Orac the workaholic IT head hasn’t turned up for work- something she has

never ever done. No message, no way of contacting her- something is amiss.

The team has a scout around and thinks that she will contact Marie who is

the closest on the team to her, but why and where? There appears to be

very much more to Orac’s background than anyone would have thought and

they just hope she stays safe. I love Joy’s books. There's a very comforting

feeling in settling down with one of them. An excellent very well thought

out plot and characters you can’t help but take to. A mystery to keep the

grey matter active and nothing untoward too grisly and ghastly

(other than the odd murder!).

A stunning read, I thoroughly enjoyed it- possibly the best of Joys books

to date- and the rest are all 5*!

"I was born in Kent but spent most of my working life in London and Surrey. I was an apprentice florist to Constance Spry Ltd, a prestigious Mayfair shop that throughout the sixties and seventies teemed with both royalty and ‘real’ celebrities. What an eye-opener for a working-class kid from the Garden of England! I swore then, probably whilst I was scrubbing the floor or making the tea, that I would have a shop of my own one day. It took until the early eighties, but I did it. Sadly the recession wiped us out, and I embarked on a series of weird and wonderful jobs; the last one being a bookshop manager. Surrounded by books all day, getting to order whatever you liked, and being paid for it! Oh bliss! And now I live in a village in the Lincolnshire Fens with my partner, Jacqueline, a highly decorated retired police officer, and our four barking mad Springer spaniels. If I do get any spare time, which is rare these days, my one relaxation is painting, especially using soft pastels. We have been here for twenty years now and although I’ll never be a true ‘Yeller Belly’, a native born to this county, I have adopted it as my own. I love the mists, the big skies and the endless waterways. All my books are set here on the Fens, and why not? The location is perfect for murder!” BOOKS BY JOY ELLIS DI NIKKI GALENA SERIES: CRIME ON THE FENS SHADOW OVER THE FENS HUNTED ON THE FENS KILLER ON THE FENS STALKER ON THE FENS CAPTIVE ON THE FENS BURIED ON THE FENS THIEVES ON THE FENS FIRE ON THE FENS DARKNESS ON THE FENS HIDDEN ON THE FENS NIKKI GALENA BOX SET, BOOKS 1-3 NIKKI GALENA BOX SET, BOOKS 4-6 NIKKI GALENA BOX SET, BOOKS 7-9 JACKMAN & EVANS SERIES: THE MURDERER’S SON THEIR LOST DAUGHTERS FOURTH FRIEND THE GUILTY ONES THE STOLEN BOYS THE PATIENT MAN MATT BALLARD SERIES: BEWARE THE PAST FIVE BLOODY HEARTS STANDALONE NOVELS: GUIDE STAR FIND JOY ON AUTHOR WEBSITE FACEBOOK GOODREADS
