Publisher's summary

The newspapers call them the Savages: a band of home invaders as merciless as they are stealthy. Usually they don't leave a clue. This time, they've left a body.The first victim is found sprawled on her kitchen floor, blood soaking the terracotta tiles. Before long, another corpse is discovered, dead of fright. As the toll rises, it's up to DC Ben Cooper and DS Diane Fry to track down the killers. But the enemy isn't who they think it is. Beneath the sinister shadow of the mountain ridge called the Devil's Edge, a twisted game is in play – a game more ruthless than the detectives can imagine…Packed with nerve-jangling suspense and moody atmosphere, The Devil's Edge is a thriller to rival the very best of Peter Robinson and Peter James.

Great Story and super characters

I have to caveat this review in that my interest in this story was first piqued by the setting. Having spent time in the Peak District and also having family who live there - it is like a homecoming to read and travel through the villages, towns, and landscape.
This was my introduction to the Cooper/Fry mysteries. While it was obvious to me that there was a history of which i knew nothing i didn't find that it detracted from the enjoyment. Quite the contrary it whet my appetite to get and read the earlier books.
The Devil's Edge takes you (and Ben) around the peak district, on literal cliffs and personal ones.
Following the horrible attacks of a group of toughs dubbed the 'Savages" the search is on to find who did this. On the way you find out just how small a village can be when you have nosy neighbors.
It is a great listen and Mike is very easy to listen to.
It is very frustrating to see earlier books available to audible.co.uk listeners but not in the U.S. It is hoped that this will soon be resolved.
However do not let that stop you from getting this listen. It is worth it!!!!
