5.0 out of 5 stars An atmospheric cracker!
I started this book hoping it would be as good a read as 'Black Dog'which was an excellent first novel by Stephen Booth. I finished it knowing that he is a writer whose skills are growing and developing with each piece of writing. This is a cracker!

5.0 out of 5 stars An atmospheric cracker!, 6 May 2001

This review is from: Dancing With the Virgins (Hardcover)
I started this book hoping it would be as good a read as 'Black Dog'which was an excellent first novel by Stephen Booth. I finished it knowing that he is a writer whose skills are growing and developing with each piece of writing. This is a cracker! The plot is intricate, but finely tuned, and could carry the reader along on its own, but add in excellent characterisation, social background and an almost poetic portrayal of the wilderness of the Peak District and you have an 'unputdownable' novel. Well done Stephen! I am looking forward to the further development of your characters in the next book!

This review is from: Dancing With the Virgins (Hardcover)
I'm a big fan of Peter Robinson's Inspector Banks stories and read Black Dog and Dancing with Virgins whilst waiting for my next 'Banks' fix- and I was immediately hooked. The descriptive prose is excellent and the characters are so believable. First class writing from a new author.

This review is from: Dancing With the Virgins (Hardcover)
A newspaper and magazine journalist for over 25 years, Stephen Booth was born in the English Pennine town of Burnley. He was brought up on the coast at Blackpool, where he began his career in journalism by editing his school magazine and wrote his first 'novel' at the age of 13.

Stephen gave up journalism in 2001 to write crime novels full time. He and his wife Lesley live in a former Georgian dower house near Retford, Nottinghamshire, in Robin Hood country.

The Peak District can be a beautiful place in summer and attracts visitors from miles around and one of the attractions that draws people to it, even though it is in one of the more remote areas is a ring of standing stone called the Nine Virgins. They carry a dark legend from the past. Now as winter begins to draw in and the attraction begins to draw less visitors, a tenth figure is added to the circle. The body of Jenny Weston is discovered. Her body has been arranged in some macabre position, so that she appears to be dancing . . .
