Brilliant! You have to admire Stephen Booth that he has created a brilliant Derbyshire police/thriller series of this standard and excellence. On top of that the two main heroes don't get into bed together! Wow that makes a change as we all know, sex sells, However, writing excellence and a thumping good story sell better to those who don't seek sensational drivel such as "## shades of gray" (which is by far the worst book I have had in my hands for 40 years).
Keep up the work Stephen!. Cannot wait for the next and the next and the next one.
Tip for those new to Stephen and Copper and Fry, start at the beginning of the series and work your way through. It will be well worth it!

There are only few books I finish in a very short span of time, but this - as usual for this series - was one of them. These books always make me sigh when I'm forced to put them down. Already Dead was very moving as it followed the personal struggles of Ben Cooper after the events in the previous book.
It's the well written main characters, different as they are, that carry Stephen Booth's stories for me. The books are never only about solving a crime, we readers get to take part in the characters' lives in the Peak District both on the job and in some aspects of their private lives.
I bought a map of the area early on in the series and I get it out for each new book. So many interesting spots from the area play important roles in the books that it's great fun to check them out.
I've recommended this series to friends in the past, and I will keep doing so. None of these books has ever let me down and I just pre-ordered the next one.
