The Unquiet Grave by Steven Dunne
  

Lovereading view...

The city of Derby has a series detective worth watching out for, one DI Damen Brooks who has already starred in three books so you have several treats in store. DI Brook, recently injured and suspended, is now back but relegated to the closed case department. Soon he is intrigued with a case that dates back to the 60s and as he retraces the evidence, and the style changes with each period of history so we piece the jigsaw together which only eventually makes sense when you have all the pieces. All very clever. A most impressive read.

Synopsis

The Unquiet Grave by Steven Dunne

The past can't stay hidden forever...The Cold Case Unit of Derby Constabulary feels like a morgue to DI Damen Brook. But in disgrace and recently back from suspension, his boss thinks it's the safest place for him. But Brook isn't going down without a fight and when he uncovers a pattern in a series of murders that date back to 1963, he is forced to dig deeper. How could a killer stay undetected for so long? Could it be luck or are more sinister forces at work? Applying his instincts and razor sharp intelligence, Brook delves deep into the past of both suspects and colleagues unsure where the hunt will lead him. What he does know for sure is that a significant date is approaching fast and the killer may be about to strike again...

Reviews

'A gripping serial killer story with an exceptional depth of humanity, Deity delves into the darkest corners of human motivation. DI Damen Brook is one of the most memorable characters in recent British crime fiction. The city of Derby finally has a copper to match anything Edinburgh or Oxford can produce! Dark and twisted, but DI Brook has an intense emotional core'
Stephen Booth

'Fast paced and thrilling, crime writing at its best'
Sun

'DI Brook has evolved into one of the best and most memorable fictional detectives in what is undoubtedly a crowded market. A truly pulsating story which will leave readers breathless'
Lancashire Evening Post
