The Body on Scafell Pike: the first of a gripping and atmospheric new Lake District mystery series (Lake District Murder Mysteries)
S J Brooke (Author)
OUT ON THE HILLS, A KILLER IS WAITING. 'I loved everything about this book! The atmosphere, the suspense, the storyline, the characters.' READER REVIEW 'I can't wait for the next' READER REVIEW 'This gripping thriller has everything you want in a great mystery.' READER REVIEW The riveting, darkly atmospheric new crime series based in the iconic Cumbrian Lake District. A renowned mountaineer and self-described 'fell runner' is found dead in a deep gully on one side of Scafell Pike within hours of announcing his intention of breaking the world record for the quickest continuous summit of every peak in the Lake District. Only a month into the job, DI Jess Chambers had been hoping that Cumbria would offer a slower pace of policing than her native Belfast, but this first case already sees her out of her depth. A local mountain guide, Margot Voyce, proves to be her biggest asset as she begins her investigation into the mysterious death of this world-famous athlete in unfamiliar terrain. But as legions of his online following descend on the Lakes to pay their respects, it becomes clear that this was no accident. Jess and Margot must solve the case before more blood is spilled - but in a community such as this, sometimes the truth is more dangerous than a killer.
