"'The body of the woman sprawled obscenely among the stones… She looked like a dead woman, dancing.'
In a remote part of the Peak District stand the Nine Virgins, a ring of stones overshadowed by a dark legend. Now, a tenth figure is added to the circle – the body of Jenny Weston is discovered, her limbs arranged so she appears to be dancing.
Weeks earlier Maggie Crew had been attacked on the moors. Is there a maniac at loose, knifing woman at random? DC Ben Cooper and Detective Sergeant Diane Fry struggle to make sense of the murders. But the moors have witnessed more bloodshed than either realises, and violence is to beget more violence before the answer is found.
The second Cooper and Fry case from acclaimed crime author Stephen Booth, available for the first time in large print.
