Today we are spotlighting her JACKMAN & EVANS series. The first book is THE MURDERER’S SON and what a way to start a series this book had me hooked from the very first page and it just keeps on giving. WOW!
THE MURDERER’S SON (Jackman & Evans #1) by Joy Ellis
Available from: www.amazon.co.uk www.amazon.com
A BLOODY KILLER SEEMS TO HAVE RETURNED TO THE LINCOLNSHIRE FENS
Twenty years ago: a farmer and his wife are cut to pieces by a ruthless serial killer.
Now: a woman is viciously stabbed to death in the upmarket kitchen of her beautiful house on the edge of the marshes.
Then a man called Daniel Kinder walks into Saltern police station and confesses to the murder.
But DI Rowan Jackman and DS Marie Evans of the Fenland Constabulary soon discover that there is a lot more to Daniel than meets the eye. He has no memory of the first five years of his life and is obsessed with who his real mother is.
With no evidence to hold him, Jackman and Evans are forced to let him go, and in a matter of days the lonely Lincolnshire Fens become the stage for more killings and Daniel has disappeared.
In a breathtaking finale, the truth about Daniel’s mother comes to light and DI Jackman and DS Evans race against time to stop more lives being destroyed.
DS Marie Evans lost her husband in a motorbike accident and has personal connections to the case. DI Rowan Jackman leads the investigation. He is extremely smart and has a knack for bringing out the best in his diverse team, which includes the mysterious computer specialist Orac.
Full of twists and turns, this is a crime thriller that will keep you turning the pages until the shocking ending.

What the readers are saying:
This psychological thriller had me turning pages whilst it took me so time due to other commitments to read it. Never read this author before (but would read her other books). The title makes you think of 1 way the story will go and then as you carry on reading the book, it takes a turn and goes a different way. Fiona (Titch) Hunt’s Reviews
The Murderer’s Son is a very good read, which I would have read in one sitting if circumstances hadn’t intervened. As it was I was just itching to get back to it as soon as possible (my mother got short shrift!). It probably doesn’t have the most plausible premise but it is well written and paced and held my attention throughout. Elaine Tomasso’s Reviews
A fantastic read with brilliant characters. I was on the edge of my seat and it really had me thinking. Full of twists and plots. 5*. Highly recommended. Susan Angela Wallace ‘s Reviews
This is book #1 in the DI Rowan Jackman and DS Marie Evans of the Fenland Constabulary. There is no hanky-panky going on between the two lead characters, for now, and I like it that way. Don’t mess around with my mystery books, thank you very much! I love Jackman, Evans and the team as we learn about them and their lives – they seem so real. This is an excellent start to what is developing into a fantastic series you won’t want to miss. Read more Joann’s Reviews
