‘The Dying Light’ by Joy Ellis is the third book in the DCI Matt Ballard series. Any book of Joy’s never lets me down! She is an exceptionally brilliant writer and again this story smashes it out of the park, yet again!
Matt has now retired, with Liz his partner and enjoying his quiet life in the Lincolnshire fens while setting up their own Detective Agency. His mate, again, former DCI Will Stonebridge is in a neighbouring fen and rings Matt, he needs advice. A neighbour is being threatened and experiencing unpleasant events. There are also strange things happening in the night. Then Will’s wife Kate is changing, her mental state is diminishing. The relationship between Will and Kate is deteriorating along with his wife’s mental health.
The story is skilfully weaved with many different threads and Joy has managed to evolve it with plenty of twists and turns right to the end! Again, Joy has created a story that had me reading just one more page before I made tea, or went to bed, with an amazing, unexpected ending.
