Review

Praise for The Dead Place:

‘A dark Derbyshire mystery…not for the squeamish’ Daily Mail

‘A thoroughly enjoyable book from one of Britain’s best crime writers’ Sunday Telegraph

Praise for Stephen Booth:

'A leading light of British crime writing' Guardian

'Endows the traditional crime story with a literary strength that lifts it above the general ruck… He gives a satisfying read rather than a quick fix' Independent

‘Stephen Booth is an author to keep an eye on’ Evening Standard

‘In this atmospheric debut, Stephen Booth makes high summer in Derbyshire as dark and terrifying as midwinter’ Val McDermid

‘Black Dog sinks its teeth into you and doesn’t let go … A dark star may be born!’ Reginald Hill

Synopsis

Soon there will be a killing. Close your eyes and breathe in the aroma. I can smell it right now, can't you? So powerful, so sweet. So irresistible. It's the scent of death. The anonymous caller who taunts the Derbyshire Police with talk of an imminent killing could be just another hoaxer. The macabre descriptions of death and decomposition could be someone's sick fantasy. But after listening to the voice, so eerily calm and controlled as it invites the police to meet the 'flesh eater', Detective Diane Fry is certain she's dealing with a killer ! And it may already be too late to save the next victim. DC Ben Cooper, meanwhile, is looking into Derbyshire's first case of body snatching. It is an investigation that will take him into the world of those whose lives revolve around the dead and their disposal, from funeral directors to crematorium staff and a professor whose speciality is the study of death.
