Overview

A stunning landscape, a ruthless conflict... and one young police detective.

On the wild moors of England's Dark Peak, a conflict has been raging for years. The discovery of an illegal haul from the bedroom of a terraced house is a clue to what might be at stake - not only the fate of local wildlife, but perhaps the entire future of one of the most prized landscapes in the Peak District National Park.

Derbyshire police detective DC Ben Cooper, on assignment to the Rural Crime Squad, finds himself stepping into the middle of the conflict, without being quite sure whose side he's on. The predators come in all shapes and sizes - and in this battle, not all the victims are human...

The ebook includes an excerpt from the first novel in the Cooper & Fry series, BLACK DOG.

    Stephen Booth is an excellent writer (Black Dog) - well balanced

    Stephen Booth is an excellent writer (Black Dog) - well balanced, and great plots. An obvious nature enthusiast, his knowledge and research adds to the reader knowledge which I like. Gave one star less because of the author's method of ending this particular story, which in no way will I reveal.

    Birds

    A bit boring and dry. It's about birds and illegal hunting. Not what I would usually read and more a man's story. It was short and free which are good points. The writing was fine but the subject was dull to me. I will delete this one as I will never want to reread it. Believe men would enjoy it!
