Publisher's Summary

Things are looking up for Detective Sanne Jensen and Dr. Meg Fielding. Dating each other seems to be working, their families are behaving themselves, and the worst of the post-Christmas crime wave is over.

The discovery of a Pakistani girl's body out on the moors changes all that. No one knows who she is, who hurt her, or how she came to be there. As pressure mounts on East Derbyshire Special Ops for a quick resolution, it becomes ever more apparent that the case won't provide one.

With the Pakistani community closing ranks, and threads of suspicion reaching farther than anyone could have predicted, the investigation leaves Sanne facing an ordeal she may not survive.

A great crime mystery with great characters

Third in the dark peak series, this book was similar to the first two in that it followed a crime with twists and turns. The main characters were relatable and well written. The voice artist is excellent- does credible accents and voices and is easy to listen to with her down to earth tone. Well worth a listen

Excellent Audible book.

I loved A Quiet Death. Absolutely fabulous. Great mystery, great romance, great banter between the detectives at work. Cari Hunter writing and Nicola Victoria Vincent narrating is an unbeatable combination.

Another fantastic story and excellent narration

Cari Hunter’s books are a breed apart and I’m totally addicted. They both terrify and delight me. This proved true once again with A Quiet Death. If you’re having a day (or a week, or a month, or – let’s face it, it’s 2020 – a year) where you have no faith left in humanity, maybe you should postpone reading or listening to it. Or not. Cari Hunter is so good at making things sound real that all I was thinking as I listened to Nicola Victoria Vincent narrating perfectly – as usual – is how awful people can be. How inhuman and soulless. Then just when my heart was on the verge of giving up and closing itself off to the world, there came Sanne and Meg, saving said world (or at least part thereof).

I know Cari Hunter doesn’t write romance but seriously, Meg and Sanne are one of the best, most plausible, hottest couples in lesfic. And they make all the terrible things happening in Hunter’s books – because, yeah, they’re thrillers and they’re scary AF – bearable, at least for me.

When A Quiet Death begins, Dr Meg Fielding and Detective Sanne Jensen are celebrating the “almost four weeks anniversary” of the relationship everybody (except them) knew they were meant to have. It’s business as usual for both on them on the work front, which means Sanne will yet again get in trouble. The discovery of the body of a young Pakistani girl on the moors turns out to be only the beginning of a difficult and heartbreaking investigation for Sanne and her colleagues, who, on top of that, find themselves navigating the slippery slope of police distrust in minority communities.

I get distracted easily, and that I never felt like taking a break from the story to check my emails or be silly on social media is another proof of Cari Hunter’s talent. The crime arc is splendidly gutting and dark as can be. Police procedurals can be monotonous (as is real police work, I guess), but Hunter keeps me captivated thanks to, as I wrote above, how real her characters are. Meg and Sanne, obviously, but also Nelson, who’s the partner any cop should have. I also felt my heart break with tenderness at the relationship between Sanne and her mother. I just love these people, flaws and all.

Hunter doesn’t write life as we’d like it to be. She writes the people who make it worth living.

The Meg and Sanne stories just get better.

Another great book from Cari Hunter and again beautifully narrated by Nicola Victoria Vincent. If you like a good crime story you will certainly like the Dark Peak series of books. Can't wait for the next one!

Really brilliant listen

I thoroughly enjoyed the first 2 of the series and was pleased to start this one. I was not disappointed but I am now it's finished. The characters are like mates and I find myself caring about them and their families and friends. Great that Sannas boss figures more in this one. The narrator does a brilliant job and has judged the pace perfectly.

Incredible

A story that would challenge any TV show in a similar genre - someone needs to pick up this author and dramatize her incredible stories - even more so as there is a series of them.

Definitely add this to your wish list ! In fact forget it....just buy it or download it...

The story is encapsulating, well structured and easily followed with enough complexity to keep the listener engaged and the narration is the best I have heard on audible to date - just brilliant...!

Cari writes for everyone and her works are excellent...!

the best "Dark Peak" book yet.

Riveting story line combined with the usual high quality narration made a long 450 mile drive a lot easier.

Decent but predictable

I’ve enjoyed the Dark Peak series but unfortunately this one repeats the trope of the traditional country folk actually being evil. If you’ve read/listened to the previous books it became rather predictable.
