Killer on the Fens by Joy Ellis. I've been speeding through this series as fast as NetGalley has offered them.
A WWII abandoned air field with plenty of superstition attached, a dying father's request, the hope of reconciliation between another father and daughter, and the discovery of a crypt that will keep the medical examiner busy.
Another entertaining installment from Joy Ellis!
Police Procedural. Aug. 5, 2016. print length: 264 pages.
The Disappeared by Kristina Ohlsson continues another series I've recently discovered.
Two years before, Alex Recht failed to solve the case of a young woman who went missing, and the case has not let im go. When a hiker and his dog stumble on a body, Alex is certain that it is that of Rebecca Trolle. As the site is investigated, the body of a man buried decades earlier is discovered. What else might the area reveal?
And what does all of this have to do with a famous author who has refused to speak a single word for 30 years?
Intertwined with the murder plot are events in the lives of Alex, Fredrika, and Peder that have connections to the case.
Perhaps a few too many coincidences, the film club bit didn't quite make sense to me, and the conclusion has an ambiguous feel, but another entertaining police procedural from Kristina Ohlsson.
Crime/Police Procedural. 2014. 344 pages.
