In the heart of summer, in the dead of night, something wakes you. The house is quiet. The children are sleeping. The kitchen is empty.
Except for the body on the floor.

A series of brutal home invasions is terrorizing the Peak District. Until now, the burglars haven’t left a clue. This time, they’ve left a corpse. But as the death toll rises, two intrepid cops begin to suspect that the robberies – and the murders – are not what they seem. Beneath the scorching summer sun, a dangerous game is in play . . . and a merciless killer is hiding in plain sight.

Packed with twists, suspense, and danger, The Devil’s Edge is a gripping thriller to rival the very best of Peter Robinson and Peter James.

Besides rendering Cooper and Fry as fully realized characters, Booth makes even minor characters as distinct and sharp as the jagged rocks of the Riddings Edge.
