Jenny Ellacott

Strike meets Jenny — the wife of Robin’s eldest brother, Stephen — at Robin and Matthew’s wedding reception when he is seated at a table with the couple. Jenny kindly passes Strike a pint and he’s so grateful that he “could have kissed her.” She is described as a “broad shouldered brunette.” 1

In Troubled Blood, Jenny, gives birth to Robin’s first niece, Annabel Marie, shortly before Christmas.2 Robin spends the holidays with her doting family, opening chocolates and cracking nuts for Jenny while she breastfeeds.3
