The Murder Road

by Stephen Booth

Part of the Cooper and Fry Series

Crime / Mystery eBooks of the Month Thriller and Suspense

LoveReading View on The Murder Road

So many of Britain's regions have proven the background to outstanding crime series and the Peak District is no exception, with Stephen Booth as its prominent voice, with every successive title wedding his indomitable cops Detective Inspector Ben Cooper and Detective Sergeant Diane Fry to the rugged and beautiful landscape and catching the atmospheric feel of the place with unerring precision. This 15th novel in a series that should in all justice soon make it to our TV screens is as assured as ever, beginning with an abandoned lorry that delivered animal feed, and no trace of the driver, apart from copious bloodstains in the cab. A web of secrets. lies and loyalties begs to be unravelled as internal police reorganisations and conflicts hold the investigation back. Impeccable police procedurals with a touch of class.

Maxim Jakubowski

The Murder Road Synopsis

Ben Cooper and his team from Derbyshire Constabulary's E Division return in this gripping new page-turner from the master of the genre. For the Peak District hamlet of Shawhead, there's only one road in and one road out. Its handful of residents are accustomed to being cut off from the world by snow or floods. But when a lorry delivering animal feed is found jammed in the narrow lane, with no sign of the driver except for a blood-stained cab, it's the beginning of something much more sinister...'Booth skilfully portrays a stunning landscape with a dark heart that conceals secrets, vendettas and revenge.' Daily Mail on The Corpse Bridge

To celebrate the paperback release of the "simply superb" Come and Find Me, we have the opportunity to win a copy of the book with bookplates SIGNED by author Sarah Hilary. The competition will close on Friday 9 November with winners being notified by Friday 16 November.  "Simply superb, Come and Find Me is one hell of a clever, twisting, powerful story. This series is one of my favourites and DI Marnie Rome returns here in splendid style ... Sarah Hilary has the ability to take you into the words, to actually feel, to experience, and she sent my thoughts worming and writhing. At one point I found myself so exasperated and frustrated with one of the characters, it came as a shock when I came up for air and realised where I was. The ending buffeted me, surprised me, emotionally affected me, and a certain someone is still creeping around inside my mind. I already know that Come and Find Me will be one of my favourite reads of the year, and I think this is Sarah Hilary’s best yet, I simply can’t recommend this series highly enough." - Liz Robinson, Editorial Expert To have a chance of winning this fantastic prize, click the button below.
