Brutal acts of firestarting have ravaged the Peak District, and now a new wave of moorland infernos sweeps across the national park. For DS Ben Cooper, the blazes are best left to the firefighters, even with the arsonists still at large.

But when an intruder breaks into an abandoned pub, Cooper is on the case - and he swiftly unearths a pair of grim surprises. The first is evidence of a years-old double homicide. And the second is a corpse, newly dead...

What links the three deaths? Where are the missing bodies? Who is responsible - and how do the raging fires fit in? For Cooper and his rival DI Diane Fry, it's the most twisted investigation of their lives... and with an ingenious killer pulling the strings, it could also be their last.

Drenched in atmosphere and danger, Stephen Booth's relentless new thriller builds to a shock finale that will catch even the most seasoned suspense readers off guard.

I always want to slap Diane Fry upside the head. She's such a miserable, joyless individual. I also want to slap Ben Cooper upside the head for being so wet all the time and letting her push him around. I guess that says a lot about Stephen's writing that he can make his characters so real that I can feel that way!

Captivating story, good character description, can't wait for the next book.

I'm a little ambivalent about this series but I've read them all, and I think this is one of the best. Some of them are pretty slow-moving; this one has a decent pace, as well as the other ingredients of setting and character.
