DI Nikki Galena and DS Joseph Easter are the protagonists in a series of crime thriller novels by English novelist Joy Ellis. DI Nikki Galena is police detective with nothing left to lose; she’s seen a girl die in her arms, and her daughter will never leave the hospital again. She’s got tough on the criminals she believes did this to her. Too tough. And now she’s been given one final warning: make it work with her new sergeant, DS Joseph Easter, or she’s out. DS Joseph Easter is the squeaky-clean new member of the team. But his nickname “Holy Joe” doesn’t account for his former life as a soldier. He has an estranged daughter who blames him for their family troubles.

Joy Ellis began her DI Nikki Galena and DS Joseph Easter series in 2010 with her own debut novel, Mask Wars (aka Crime on the Fens). The series is currently ongoing.
