Major new psychological Peak District thriller from the acclaimed author of Blood on the Tongue and Blind to the Bones. The vast labyrinth of caverns, passages and subterranean rivers beneath the Peak District are a major tourist attraction. But this summer not all the darkness is underground, and not all the devils are folk legends. Mingling with the holidaymakers is a convicted killer, bent on revenge. Fourteen years ago Mansell Quinn was sentenced to life imprisonment for stabbing his lover to death. Now he's out and within a matter of hours his ex-wife is found dead -- a new identity and a new home no safeguard against murder. Looking to the original case files for clues to the fugitive's wherabouts, detectives Diane Fry and Ben Cooper discover there may be other potential victims out there. And as the son of the officer responsible for putting Quinn behind bars, Ben realizes that his own name could be high on the list.

The latest in the Fry/Cooper series. In further developing the characters from the previous four books, and introducing new ones into the mix, Stephen Booth holds the fans of his earlier novels, whilst weaving an intricate murder plot good enough to be a stand alone read. His descriptions of the Dark Peak bring it alive, and the snippets of local history only add to the atmosphere of the stories. As I read I can almost be back in my native Derbyshire. A serious rival to Peter Robinson in this genre, I look forward to reading many more in this series.
