The award-winning first novel in the Cooper & Fry crime series, set in England's beautiful and atmospheric Peak District. "Dark, intense and utterly compelling," Black Dog was an extraordinary debut from a writer who has rapidly become one of the UK's most successful crime novelists. It's been a long, hot summer in the Peak District national park. But summer comes to an end when the body of missing teenager Laura Vernon is found. For young police detective Ben Cooper, the work has just begun. His community is hiding a girl's killer, and a past as dark as the Derbyshire night. It seems Laura was the keeper of secrets beyond her years and, in a case where no-one is innocent, everyone is a suspect. But Cooper's local knowledge and instincts are about to face an even greater challenge. The ambitious DC Diane Fry has been transferred from a nearby city, a woman as ruthless as she is attractive... *Winner of the Barry Award for Best British Crime Novel *Finalist for the Anthony Award for Best First Mystery "Suspenseful and supremely engaging. Booth does a wonderful job." - Los Angeles Times "Simultaneously classic, contemporary and haunting." - Mysterious Bookshop, New York "An atmospheric, psychological stunner." - The Booksellershow more
