A NEWLY-DISCOVERED NOVEL FROM MULTI-MILLION SELLING AUTHOR JOY ELLIS’S ARCHIVES. NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED!
THREE NICE PEOPLE. THREE TERRIBLE CRIMES. WHAT MADE THEM DO THESE AWFUL THINGS?
It’s the night shift worker who finds them. Huddled in a hospital store cupboard is elderly Edith Higgins. Knifed to death. Sitting behind her is Staff Nurse Lily Frampton, a scalpel clasped in her blood-soaked hand.
No one can understand why this kind-hearted, dedicated nurse would brutally murder a frail patient she’s spent months caring for.
That same day, mild-mannered schoolteacher Rod Black is found surrounded by the battered bodies of his pupils. Why would a well-respected teacher beat five schoolboys to death?
Then a third shocking — and equally inexplicable — incident takes place in a London homeless shelter.
What could turn three honest, upright citizens into cold-blooded killers?
Once again, DCI Bob Foreman calls on Ellie McEwan for help. Can Ellie use her extraordinary psychic gift to uncover the truth?
But will that make Ellie the killer’s next target?
DISCOVER A TOTALLY ENTHRALLING CRIME THRILLER.
This utterly gripping crime thriller is perfect for fans of L.J. Ross, J.D. Kirk, Elly Griffiths, Susan Hill, Kate Ellis or Ann Cleeves.

ELLIE MCEWAN MYSTERIES
Book 1: AN AURA OF MYSTERY
Book 2: THE COLOUR OF MYSTERY
Having read book 1: An Aura of Mystery, I was really pleased that I didnt have to wait too long for book 2. I was excited to read more about Ellie and I wasn’t disappointed. This is an absolutely gripping read that had me on the edge of my seat at times. Adrenaline pumping thriller with love and relationships thrown into the mix along with a selection of very unique characters that fit the story perfectly.
Ellie and Michael are still coming to terms with the death of Carol, their very dear friend. Also they find they are beneficiaries to an estate that is beyond their wildest dreams. They decide to honour Carol’s memory in the way she would have wanted and create a medical centre with a difference to enable Ellie to help people with her gift and also bring on board other holistic practitioners to offer services rarely found in other establishments. So the Cavendish-Meyer Centre is a dream come true , or is it?
Then strange things start happening. A staff nurse well know for her caring, compassionate nature is found with an elderly patient who has been stabbed to death by the nurse. A dedicated teacher is found surrounded by the bodies of the schoolboys he was teaching. When a third unrelated murder happens DCI Foreman is desperate and turns to Ellie for help but last time Ellie was put in danger!
Can Ellie use her aura skills to help the Police work out what is going on?
Another absolutely brilliant read that is different in a very good way. The pages keep turning and the intrigue and suspense build all the way to the mind-blowing ending.
The characters that were introduced in book 1 continue to develop their unique personalities and the new characters join seamlessly to make a very entertaining story that flows really well.
Absolutely love this book I am just disappointed that no more are planned because I would love there to be more.
UK #1 BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF THE JACKMAN & EVANS AND DI NIKKI GALENA SERIES; SHORTLISTED FOR BOOK OF THE YEAR FICTION: CRIME & THRILLER AT THE BRITISH BOOK AWARDS 2021
OVER 3 MILLION BOOKS SOLD!
Joy grew up and lived in Kent, trained in floristry in Mayfair and ran her own highly successful floristry business in Weybridge for many years. In the mid-1990s, she followed her lifelong love of books, first as the manager of an independent bookshop in Leatherhead, Surrey, then as a writer. When she retired, Joy and her partner Jacqueline and their two spaniels settled in a village just outside Boston, captivated by the Lincolnshire Fens.
Joy’s happy home life is far removed from her storylines, however, and while she loves living in the misty Fens, the area provides a remote and eerie backdrop to her novels. Joy is also able to add the authenticity vital to any crime thriller by drawing on Jacqueline’s inside knowledge, to confirm procedures and the reality of tackling brutal crime and criminals in a modern police force.
