Publisher's Summary

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....


What the Critics Say

"Booth skilfully portrays a stunning landscape with a dark heart that conceals secrets, vendettas and revenge." (Daily Mail on The Corpse Bridge)

Narrates well

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Neither,but felt claustrophobic about the death scene.

Any additional comments?

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.

Bad narration !!!

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.
