Show synopsis Diane Fry and Ben Cooper return in another psychological "Peak District" thriller from the acclaimed author of "Blind to the Bones" and "The Dead Place". It was an ordinary house fire with tragic consequences: a wife and two children dead. But then for DS Diane Fry and DC Ben Cooper, the ordinary always means trouble - trouble like a bereaved family living in fear, trouble like the shocking assassination of an elderly woman living alone in a quiet Peak District village. What could be the motive for inflicting such violence on harmless victims? To find the answer, Fry and Cooper must direct their search far beyond Derbyshire to the other side of Europe, in a land where the customs are even more unfathomable than the language. With a little help from Europol, they discover some of the reasons why people can be scared to live - and the connection at the heart of the enquiry that proves to be the most surprising revelation of all.
