BLACK DOG by Stephen Booth
As helicopters search Northern England's Peak District for fifteen year-old Laura Vernon, Detective Constable Ben Cooper quietly dreads the worst. And when her body is found in the woods, Cooper's investigation begins with a short list of markedly uncooperative suspects: retired miner Harry Dickinson, whose black Labrador discovered Laura's body, and Laura's wealthy parents.
Uneasily teamed with ambitious newcomer Detective Constible Diane Fry, Cooper tests a town's family ties, friendships, and loyaties -- and finds that in order to understand the present, they must unearth the past.
This book is a Witness Impulse title from Harper Collins Publishers, now available for $2.99.
A bit predictable and too drawn out made this book a little boring to me. It wasn't hard to figure out who the murderer was but for me the main characters were what really ruined it, totally disliked them.
I received an copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
