Description

When the body of a young woman, wearing climbing shoes but no helmet, is found at the foot of a cliff in the Derbyshire gritstone edges, the emergency services are quick to treat her death as an accident, the result of a fall from a height onto a bed of rocks and boulders. The police have bigger fish to fry anyway ? a violent and dangerous offender has escaped from his prison escort on the way to court and is at large on the Derbyshire moors, starting a massive manhunt involving scores of officers. That might have been the end of the story as far as the dead woman was concerned: just another victim of a hazardous activity. Her husband identifies the body as his wife. He prepares for the funeral. Her family and work colleagues grieve. A climbing accident was how Detective Sergeant Woodman first saw the incident as well. But further information leads him to question his initial view and he begins to suspect ?foul play?. A murder investigation is launched. The investigation is far from straightforward. It is hindered by mistakes and misfortune. There is incompetence, interference by a maverick officer, and even the inclement winter weather works against the proper conduct of the enquiry. And those investigating are still reeling from the events of one of the most notorious and savage series of murders in English criminal history.
