Publisher's Summary

On a rain-swept Derbyshire moor, hounds from the local foxhunt find the body of a well-dressed man whose head has been crushed. Yet an anonymous caller reports the same body lying half a mile away. Called in to investigate the discovery, detectives DS Diane Fry and DC Ben Cooper become entangled in the violent world of hunting and hunt saboteurs, horse theft and a little-known sector of the meat trade.

As Fry follows a complex trail of her own to unravel the shady business interests of the murder victim, Cooper realizes that the answer to the case might lie deep in the past. History is everywhere around him in the Peak District landscape - particularly in the 'plague village' of Eyam, where an outbreak of Black Death has been turned into a modern-day tourist attraction.

But, even as the final solution is revealed, both Fry and Cooper find themselves having to face up to the disturbing reality of the much more recent past.

Kill Call

The narrator was poor. read too fast and sometimes unable to understand the various accents. Only half way through but lost interest. - where was Ron Keith.

Dreadful

I couldn't agree more with Beulah, the narrator's voice completely ruined a very good story by Stephen Booth. I had listened to another Stephen Booth story with a different narrator and was so impressed I bought this one - never again! The attempt at accents made the characters sound "thick as two short planks" a terrible disappointment. The 2 stars are for the author and in fairness the story does warrant more but the narration ruins it.

Great story but........

Stephrn Booth tells a good story but unfortunately this one was spoilt by the most irritating narrator I've heard in a loing time. Clearly trying to liven things up with appropriate accents as he saw it, the best that can be said is that the narrator stuck to tbe same accent he used for each character but oh dear me - anyone who is female, and from Birmingham,, will be just as irritated as I was by the representation of Diane Fry. And why, even when describing events does Will Thorpe never pronounce a 't' ?

Very dour

Didn't warm to the characters and lost the plot several times. Really couldn't be bothered to go back and pick it up.

Irritating Narrator

I found the narrator's lack of diction ruined the story. His attempt at accents equally irritating. I will not listen to another book if this narrator is used.
