Sarah Broadhurst's view...
This is dark, psychological thriller stuff with the area, the Peak District, playing an important role as Edinburgh does for Rebus, Oxford for Morse. It is the fifth in the series, all highly atmospheric.
One Last Breath by Stephen Booth
The vast labyrinth of caverns, passages and subterranean rivers beneath the Peak District are a major tourist attraction. But this summer not all the darkness is underground, and not all the devils are folk legends. Mingling with the holidaymakers is a convicted killer, bent on revenge.
Fourteen years ago Mansell Quinn was sentenced to life imprisonment for stabbing his lover to death. Now he's out and within a matter of hours his ex-wife is found dead – a new identity and a new home no safeguard against murder.
Looking to the original case files for clues to the fugitive’s wherabouts, detectives Diane Fry and Ben Cooper discover there may be other potential victims out there. And as the son of the officer responsible for putting Quinn behind bars, Ben realizes that his own name could be high on the list.
One Last Breath underlines Stephen Booth’s status as one of our best story-tellers... his skilful plotting makes story-telling look deceptively easy’ Susanna Yager, Sunday Telegraph
‘Stephen Booth endows the crime novel with a literary strength that lifts it above the general ruck...he is a crime writer who gives a satisfying read rather than a quick fix’ Jane Jakeman, Independent
‘The complex relationship between [Cooper and Fry] is excellently drawn, and is combined with an intriguing plot and a real sense of place: Stephen Booth is an author to keep an eye on’
T J Binyon, Evening Standard
'A leading light of British crime writing' Maxim Jakubowski, Guardian
