    A major player in this book is the setting The moors, a mountain, narrow roads, cobblestones, cottages, quaint shops give a cozy feel, but the cold, snowy landscape, slushy sidewalks, hills too steep and icy to drive up, homes too drafty and cold to even take a coat off hint at the dark mood behind the cozy facade Seemingly unrelated deaths are investigated by Ben Cooper, all around nice guy, and Diane Fry, who is now Ben s boss A plane crash 57 years ago is the backdrop to current events Th A major player in this book is the setting The moors, a mountain, narrow roads, cobblestones, cottages, quaint shops give a cozy feel, but the cold, snowy landscape, slushy sidewalks, hills too steep and icy to drive up, homes too d...

    This is the third Cooper Fry mystery and although not as good as Black Dog, the 1st in the series , it is better than Dancing with Virgins, the 2nd Right out of the gate the reader is greeted with an apparent suicide, a missing infant, an unidentified body dug up by a snowplow and the mysterious disappearance of a WWII pilot 60 years ago when the bomber he was flying crashed into a near by hill One would think this would be enough to fill 500 pages, but alas for me, not so For whatever rea This is the third Cooper Fry mystery and although not as good as Black Dog, the 1st in the series , it is better than Dancing with Virgins, the 2nd Right out of the gate the reader is greeted with an apparent suicide, a missing infant, an unidentified body dug up by a snowplow and the mysterious disappearance of a WWII pilot 60 years ago when the bomber he was flying crashed into a near by hill One would think this would be enough to fill 500 pages, but alas for me...

    I kind of read all these books in a row because my volleyball coach lent them to me all at once, and it s not working out for me to be honest.So tip do not read them one after the other because little or nothing changes which can be a good thing in some series, but here there is just too little change to make it interesting I still think that reading one or two of these a year shouldn t be a problem because then enough time has lapsed to make itnew and suprising when you read the ne I kind of read all these books in a row because my volleyball coach lent them to me all at once, and it s not working out for me to be honest.So tip do not read them one after the other because little or nothing changes which can be a good thing in some series, but here there is just too little change to make it interesting I still think that reading one or two of these a year shouldn t be a problem because then enough time has lapsed to make itnew and suprising when you read the next one Unfortunately I ve only found out about that now which kind of ruined the experience for me.Anyway on to the review As I said the concept is pretty much the same in every book one or to bodies are found, Fry...

    This third novel in the Cooper and Fry series is a long book at 512 pages But they re 512 pages packed with several complex yet engaging stories that slowly mesh into one tale tied to the crash of an RAF bomber in 1945 It s definitely a step up from the prior book in the series.However, this book could have been shortened by probably close to a hundred pages by cutting some overly long descriptive passages and some of Ben Cooper s internal monologs This novel would have been much faster paced This third novel in the Cooper and Fry series is a long book at 512 pages But they re 512 pages packed with several complex yet engaging stories that slowly mesh into one tale tied to the crash of an RAF bomber in 1945 It s definitely a step up from the prior book in the series.However, this book could have been shortened by probably close to a hundred...

    Stephen Booth, who wasn t at all bad to start with, is going from strength to strength This is one of the best mysteries that I ve read for quite some time.It s the dead of winter in Derbyshire s E Division and DS Fry and DC Cooper havethan enough to deal with on top of the snow and ice without a Canadian girl investigating a second world war air crash on their patch too Fry is dismissive but Cooper gets drawn into the historical mystery I ve got a definite penchant for mysteries that a Stephen Booth, who wasn t at all bad to start with, is going from strength to strength This is one of the best mysteries that I ve read for quite some time.It s the dead of winter in Derbyshire s E Division and DS Fry and DC Cooper havethan enough to deal with on top of the snow and ice without a Canadian girl investigating a second world war air crash on their patch too Fry is dismissive but Cooper gets drawn into the historical mystery I ve got a definite penchant for mysteries that are set in the present ...

    Continuing with the Cooper Fry series, this was another great read from Stephen Booth I would highly recommend this series to crime mystery readers out there and say, start with book 1 and read them in order That way, you can get to grips with the relationship between Ben Cooper and Diane Fry and also, their backgrounds and how they effect and impact on their lives and work This one was centered on an incident in WW2 and a plane that crashed into the Peak District back nearing the end of the Continuing with the Cooper Fry series, this was another great read from Stephen Booth I would highly recommend this series to crime...

    This is probably one of the most atmospheric of the Cooper Fry novels The whole winter snow scenes are beautifully described and fit extremely well into the plot I find the character of Ben highly likeable and Diane not so However, the contrast between their personalities and relationship in general is enthralling throughout the series as a whole The minor characters such as the Canadian woman and the book shop owner did annoy me somewhat Also in my opinion, having read other books in thi This is probably one of the most atmospheric of the Coo...
