Set in 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.

SHADOW OVER THE FENS is the second novel in a gripping new best-selling crime fiction series featuring DI NIKKI GALENA. The first book CRIME ON THE FENS is out now.

"I could not put this book down and read it in one setting. DI Nikki Galena is out of control. She lives in a down and out apartment and her single goal is to take down as many drug dealers as she can and in any way she can. No one wants to partner with her for that reason." CL Jones
