As pressure mounts on East Derbyshire Special Ops for a quick resolution, it becomes ever more apparent that the case won't provide one. With the Pakistani community closing ranks, and threads of suspicion reaching farther than anyone could have predicted, the investigation leaves Sanne facing an ordeal she may not survive.… (mer)

More with Meg and Sanne. I still can't wrap my head around how to pronounce her name. And it tends to take me a bit to get used to the slang and such, but, after I got used to it again it was an awesome book, not to mention a kick butt thriller and mystery.

This time a young girl is found dead near where Sanne has on occasion trail run. Sanne, and the rest of the Detectives she works with are on the case.

And it turns out to be a humdinger of a case too. With locals and important people all mixed up together.

I thought of it in a two parts sort of way. The romance part and the mystery part. I really liked the mystery. It was complex and twisted and turned a bunch. The romance was nice too. It moved Meg and Sanne forward, but not too far forward.

If there are to be more books in this mystery series I quite look forward to them.

I got this galley via Netgalley on behalf of Bold Strokes Books. ( )

The case was interesting and engaging. We're given a nice view of the EDSOP team in action along with being able to witness Sanne and Meg's relationship grow. I particularly enjoyed the bits dealing with Sanne's family.

A very good continuation of the series. ( )

This is the third book in Cari Hunters “Dark Peak” series, it stands alone, but the back-history is nice to have and all three are absolutely excellent thrillers with a side order of gentle romance.

Detective Sanne Jensen and Dr. Meg Fielding have been friends forever; supporting each other as they fought to escape the dead-end estate they grew up on. After years of an on and off casual fling they have finally realized that they are far better together than apart and their lives are settling down into cosy coupledom.

Sanne works for the local Special Ops Police force. When hikers find the body of a young Pakistani girl out on the moors, Sanne and her team are called in, under intense scrutiny not to inflame the simmering tension between police and local Asian communities. At the same time Meg, a Doctor in the local ER department, has a case that screams domestic abuse, and suddenly there is something very bad going on right under their noses. Once again Sanne gets caught in the crossfire, and it will take all her strength to survive.

The love and friendship between Sanne and Meg is tangible, their characters solid, dependable and very real. Their family and work colleagues are everyday people, recognizable, genuine and authentic; all drawn with a keen eye for observation, a wonderful balance of narrative, frequently humorous dialogue and a gentle sense of affection.

Cari Hunter is a master of writing credible suspense laden crime detective stories that feel realistic. Sanne and Meg are extremely ordinary, two women trying to live quiet lives on their beloved Peaks, caught up in a dreadful ring of crime and, as always, doing their ordinary best to help those who need them.

It would be shocking if our heroine didn’t survive, and we are left with the most unassuming happy every after at the end of each dramatic chapter in Sanne and Meg’s lives, but despite knowing all of that Ms Hunter manages to create a sense of apprehension about just how badly damaged and scarred they will be. Creating a page-turner out of the ordinary is far more difficult than writing melodrama.

Once again I cannot recommend this series enough. If you like crime, thriller, and suspense with a cast of real life everyday folk and unassuming hero’s, written with excellent if unpretentious style, you really cannot do any better than this. ( )
