Overview

LOST RIVER is the 10th novel in the multiple award-winning Cooper & Fry series, set in England's beautiful and atmospheric Peak District. A number 17 Sunday Times bestseller in the UK.

A May Bank Holiday in the Peak District is ruined by the tragic drowning of an eight-year-old girl in picturesque Dovedale. For Detective Constable Ben Cooper, a helpless witness to the tragedy, the incident is not only traumatic, but leads him to become involved in the tangled lives of the Nields, the dead girl's family.

As he gets to know them, Cooper begins to suspect that one of them is harbouring a secret - a secret that the whole family might be willing to cover up.

Meanwhile, Detective Sergeant Diane Fry has a journey of her own to make - a journey back to her roots. As she finds herself drawn into an investigation of her own among the inner-city streets of Birmingham, Fry realises there is only one person she can rely on to provide the help she needs.

But that man is Ben Cooper, and he's back in Derbyshire, where his suspicions are leading him towards a shocking discovery on the banks of another Peak District river.

    Not as good as the earlier works

    In Lost River we find Ben Cooper and Diane Fry in separate locations during much of the novel. Diane returns to Birmingham, apparently to prepare for the trial of the rapists who attacked her previously, yet most of her time there is devoted to family members and descriptions of the population, life style and scenes of the city. Back in Edendale Ben is investigating a questionable drowning, ruled accident. This story line is far more Interesting but strangely convoluted. If you are a fan of the author, you may enjoy the book. If this is your first time to read Stephen Booth, I suggest you read Black Dog.

    good mysteries, but a little light on the interpersonal relation

    good mysteries, but a little light on the interpersonal relationships.  not what i would call a "buddy" book.  cooper and fry barely have a relationship, i don't understand why these are cooper and fry mysteries.  also, as with all serial books, it is difficult to determine the order they come in.

    Excellent Read! Lots of mystery to keep your attention!

    I've been reading the series and i found this book to be one of my favorites. The story is interesting and Diane Fry is beginning to lose her super harsh personality so she is not always seen as attacking and you can feel sympathy for her because you begin to understand that her armour of defense was built out of pure necessity. I liked that part of the book took place in a different part of Britian so we get a look at a modern city instead of the countryside. This one kept my interest at every page. Lots of good twists and turns. 5 stars for me.

    Not as interesting

    I've been reading my way though all the Cooper & Fry mysteries and have enjoyed them very much. I didn't find this one quite as interesting because it got bogged down in describing the local countryside and I found it hard to keep up with the story. Still worth a read though.
