Welcome to our stop on the Secrets of Death book tour!
Residents of the Peak District are used to tourists descending on its soaring hills and brooding valleys. However, this summer brings a different kind of visitor to the idyllic landscape, leaving behind bodies and secrets.
A series of suicides throughout the Peaks throws Detective Inspector Ben Cooper and his team in Derbyshire’s E Division into a race against time to find a connection to these seemingly random acts — with no way of predicting where the next body will turn up. Meanwhile, in Nottingham Detective Sergeant Diane Fry finds a key witness has vanished...
But what are the mysterious Secrets of Death?
And is there one victim whose fate wasn’t suicide at all?

Read an excerpt:
This might be my favorite book so far of the Cooper and Fry series. It is a tale of rebirth and death, in both the murder scenes AND in the main characters. Each finds themselves moving in new directions, and acknowledging their past that has led them to making their current decisions. Once again country meets city in an unexpected way - murders that could be suicides, or could not. With plenty of twists and turns, this book is an excellent entry into the series (it's number 13) and I love how the characters all come together at the end in quite an unexpected way! Not to mention the descriptions of the Peak District will having you pulling out travel brochures and planning a trip soon! If you've missed this series, you need to catch up!
