Publisher's Summary

Master crime writer Stephen Booth ventures into the Peak District's dark subterranean world for a brand-new stunning and gasp-inducing Cooper and Fry thriller.

How do you prove a murder without a body?

Ten years ago Reece Bower was accused of killing his wife, a crime he always denied. Extensive police searches near his home in Bakewell found no trace of Annette Bower's remains, and the case against him collapsed. But now memories of the original investigation have been resurrected for Detective Inspector Ben Cooper - because Reece Bower himself has disappeared, and his new wife wants answers.

Cooper can't call on the Major Crime Unit and DS Diane Fry for help unless he can prove a murder took place - impossible without a body. As his search moves into the caves and abandoned mines in the isolated depths of Lathkilldale, the question is: who would want revenge for the death of Annette Bower?

Excellent

I like this author. He writes a good yarn. You see the end coming a mile off, but it's comforting - and I don't usually do that. It's just he writes quite simple easy read/listen stories. Nowt to scare the stock as they'd say up there. I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a good yarn, well told that doesn't feel as if you've fallen into a slurry pit.

Good but not his best

Interesting storyline but the attempt to keep the relationship between Cooper & Fry was rather forced, Stephen Booth needs to either give it a rest of have them working together again properly.
