Publisher's Summary

Winter in the Derbyshire Peaks: months of knee-deep snow, short days, and rocketing crime rates.

Detective Sanne Jensen is living in self-imposed isolation and quietly falling apart, while Dr. Meg Fielding, Sanne's best friend and occasional lover, is struggling to cope with her violent brother, who is back in town and demanding money that she doesn't have.

When the murder of a drug addict is dumped onto Sanne's already unmanageable caseload, she suspects the death may be the start of something more sinister. But how can she investigate a crime when no one cares about the victim? And how can she stop a killer who has no identity, no motive, and no conscience?

An incredible follow up in the 'Dark Peak' series.

This was so good, and the narrator, Nicola Victoria Vincent, is fast becoming a favourite. I need to find other books performed by her, ASAP. Her range of accents is incredible, and her performance of the various characters in Cari Hunter's books are brilliant.

Sanne, Nelson, Meg... in the space of two books, I've grown so fond of the cast of Hunter's Dark Peak series that I'm a little sad to know I've only got one more book remaining. In the space of time between book one and two, the reader is quickly made aware that things have changed between Meg and Sanne—I know, I know, I had a moment of panic, too—but in Hunter's able hands, the narrative ducks and weaves and left me completely satisfied with the journey.

More, the thriller unfolding in the background is total Cari Hunter A-Game: it's engrossing, it's befuddling, and it's resolved through a realistic mix of detective work, intuition, and luck. The verisimilitude that Hunter puts forth in this aspect of her writing is brilliant. Ditto in the sub-plot of Meg's family, which returns in the form of her brother and is very, very unwelcome.

I can't wait to get to 'A Quiet Death.'

Excellent book.

I loved Cold to the Touch by Cari Hunter. Nicola Victoria Vincent does an outstanding job on the narration. Det. Sanne Jensen and Dr. Meg Fielding are great characters. Love the story and love the audio.

Another brilliant story from Cari Hunter

Another well put together story by Cari Hunter, just the right amount of pace, red herrings, violence and sex to keep the reader engaged right through to the end. Brilliantly narrated by Nicola Victoria Vincent.

I couldn't stop listening to this wonderful book

Sanne and Meg return in the second part of the dark peaks series. since the last episode we find Meg in a relationship and sanne lost and confused without her childhood friend. in the midst of this we have bodies turning up and more pressure on Edsop. all the cases be sold and will the romance that they have been avoiding finally come to fruition.

very well narrated by Nicola Victoria Vincent. I will certainly look for more books narrated by her as she has such a welcoming voice and you can understand the different voices of the characters.

excellent story again. the case is engaging and Sanne and Meg are just a joy. there is so much depth to the characters that made you cheer and scowl at times but loving it all the same.
