LoveReading View on The Devil's Edge

A Maxim Jakubowski Great Male Crime Sleuth.

 

The fact that that they have operated for ten books so far in the supposedly quiet locale of the Peak District does not mean that these provincial cops encounter less violence or conundrums than their urban counterparts. To the contrary.


Booth uses the magnificent scenery as a background for cleverly devious plots against which the complex relationship between the two sleuths develops on a slow burn. Their latest case begins with a corpse in a kitchen, following a home invasion. Others quickly follow.

The Devil's Edge Synopsis

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.
