Cari Hunter has written a fantastic third book in her Dark Peak series and the best so far. The story is gripping, disturbing and brilliantly written. It is scattered with humour that is an essential for those in the emergency services lest they go mad. The Peak District is a character in itself and the descriptive writing had me right there in the hills and driving the length of the snowy Snake Pass. Hunter has shown herself to be a keen observer and its comes through in every character, major or minor and in every Sheffield street and every encounter.
Sanne Jensen is one tough feisty detective but I felt her every vulnerability and loved that she and Meg had finally become a couple. She needed Meg and after their previous adventures it felt so right for them to be together. The case dealt with something we’d rather not think about ever but I couldn’t put it down until I’d savoured every single word.
If I could give it 10 stars I would!
I was given this ARC free by Netgalley and Bold Strokes Books in return for an honest review.
