The newspapers call them the Savages: a band of home invaders as merciless as they are stealthy. Usually they don't leave a clue. This time, they've left a body. The first victim is found sprawled on her kitchen floor, blood soaking the terracotta tiles. Before long, another corpse is discovered, dead of fright. As the toll rises, it's up to DC Ben Cooper and DS Diane Fry to track down the killers. But the enemy isn't who they think it is. Beneath the sinister shadow of the mountain ridge called the Devil's Edge, a twisted game is in play ? a game more ruthless than the detectives can imagine...Packed with nerve-jangling suspense and moody atmosphere, The Devil's Edge is a thriller to rival the very best of Peter Robinson and Peter James.

Stephen Booth is the internationally bestselling, CWA Dagger-winning author of ten acclaimed thrillers featuring Cooper and Fry. The series is in development as a TV programme. Booth lives in Nottingham.From Publishers Weekly:
In Booth's accomplished 11th novel featuring Det. Sgt. Ben Cooper and Det. Sgt. Diane Fry (after 2010's Lost River), a gang of burglars dubbed the Savages by the media has been robbing homes in the rural Peak District, using violence when necessary to get in and out quickly. An attack at an expensive house in Riddings that kills Zoe Barron and leaves husband Jake with serious head injuries ups the stakes. When interviews with the few scattered neighbors reveal surprising animosities and disagreements, Cooper begins to suspect the attack on the Barrons wasn't a typical home invasion, though his superiors disagree. Meanwhile, fears that edgy residents might take matters into their own hands prove true and involve Cooper's brother, Matt. Besides rendering Cooper and Fry as fully realized characters, Booth makes even minor characters as distinct and sharp as the jagged rocks of the Riddings Edge.
