It's a long, hot summer in the Peak District, but the blue skies are darkened by police helicopters and the sound of birdsong is drowned out by the increasing hysteria of a full-scale search operation for a missing teenage girl. Laura Vernon is smart, sexy and the keeper of many secrets, but now she's lying dead in a thicket in the heart of the country. The first outing for Derbyshire detective duo Ben Cooper and Diane Fry, and the beginnings of a complex relationship.

--Atmospheric and evocative

I think Stehen Booth is the best recent addition to the writers of British detective stories. He sets this book in the peak district and his writing make me see it and feel it's atmosphere. His lead character, Ben Cooper is very likeable, the interplay between characters is complex and the story is totally absorbing.
