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.

Great read. I agree with below reader. Very little of Diane Fry. Is Carol Villiers going to have a role in following books? hope so.

I love Stephen Booth's books and this is one of the best. Not quite as convoluted as some and as I am not a huge fan of DS Fry it was nice that she had a smaller role. Highly recommended.

Stephen Booth is a great storyteller and this is one of his best. Lyrical descriptions of the location and it's history and realistic, engaging characters make for a totally absorbing read.
