This was up to Booth's normal high standard of writing. It features Ben Cooper who has transferred to the Rural Crime Team. The plot covers one that is unusual and is an issue that needs to be considered and dealt with. This was a satisfying read bearing in mind this is a short story.
As many readers of Stephen's novels featuring Cooper and Fry know that Stephen is excellent at description and in this short story this was evident in describing the illegal haul. The descriptions of the moorland where Cooper found himself was excellent and on the moorland where it was cold you could feel the effects of the weather as you read.
Only 96 pages in Claws but very interesting never the less and I don't think it will be too long before Cooper and Fry are together again.
As I read I wonder in my mind what Cooper looks like and I think that Fry does have a soft spot for Ben even though she is a tough cop.
In Claws I found that Udall also likes Ben, it would be very interesting to see Udall and Fry with Cooper in a future novel, I wonder if Ben could cope with that, the only person who would know the answer to that is Stephen and because he is a great writer I don't think it will be too long before the reader will get the answers. Well done Stephen and all the best.
He has yet delivered 12 Crime novels featuring Detective Constable Ben Cooper and his female counterpart, Detective Sergeant Diane Fry. The last of the series is called "Dead and Buried".
This time we find D.C. Ben Cooper on assignment to the Derbyshire Rural Crime Squad (short SRCS) and learning about the countless problems of wildlife crime.
In the wild, unspoilt crags of the Dark Peak moorlands there is a long-established and very deadly conflict dividing bird-conservationists and predators for eggs and chicks of birds of prey for years and years now.
The discovery of an illegal bounty, a very young and very dead goshawk fresh from the nest in a cage in the bedroom of some house is a clue to what might be at stake - perhaps the entire future of one of the most prized landscapes in the Peak District National Park.
For Ben Cooper, his assignment to the Rural Crime Squad means stepping into a conflict, without being quite sure whose side is in the right. And the human predators hunting for the feathered on come in all shapes and sizes, from England and foreign countries and with a lot of money.
And at the end of this battle not all the victims will be birds, and a poor family will be near to be pushed over the edge.
In the very end our hero Ben has to make a very personal choice - but as always, being the sympathetic soul we have come to know and to like, he does the right thing.
A very satisfying short story for the fans of the Peak District crimes.
And there's an excerpt of the Novel "The Devil's Egde" which will surely make appetite for more ...
I found this a good read, and the story was self-contained, which is no mean feat with only 80 pages to play with. I particularly liked the ending, which made me smile.
