Ben Cooper and his team from Derbyshire Constabulary's E Division return in this gripping new title from the master of the genre.
For the Peak District hamlet of Shawhead, there's only one road in and one road out. Its handful of residents are accustomed to being cut off from the world by snow or floods. But when a lorry delivering animal feed is found jammed in the narrow lane, with no sign of the driver except for a blood-stained cab, it's the beginning of something much more sinister....

"Booth skilfully portrays a stunning landscape with a dark heart that conceals secrets, vendettas and revenge." (Daily Mail on The Corpse Bridge)
Unusual murder scene,which led to some problems for our hero.
The accident with the bridge.
Neither,but felt claustrophobic about the death scene.
My enjoyment was marred by several glitches in the recording,where the narrator had stumbled and this was not edited out. Also some phrases were repeated. I found myself listening for errors for a time-annoying.
Listen to audiobooks as cannot hold paperbacks due to disabilities. Love crime and fantasy. Best author ? Peter James.
This is the first book I have listened to by Stephen Booth and enjoyed the story. The only downside which I struggled with was the narration. It was too fast and I missed parts of the storyline due to the text being rear so quickly.. I had to keep checking my dashboard to make sure that the read speed was set at 1.0 which it was. This spoilt the overall enjoyment of the book for me.
Good to have a new character added in the mix. And , finally, less of Diane Fry and the increasingly unbelievable animosity she has to World in general!
