Dancing With the Virgins Summary

Dancing With the Virgins (Cooper and Fry Crime Series, Book 2) by Stephen Booth

The second in the series set in the Derbyshire Peak District, Dancing with the Virgins is a tense psychological follow-up to Stephen Booth's acclaimed debut Black Dog.

'The body of the woman sprawled obscenely among the stones... She looked like a dead woman, dancing.'

The ring of cairns known as the Nine Virgins has stood on the windswept moors of Derbyshire for centuries. Now, as winter closes in, a tenth figure is added - a body - and a modern tragedy is added to the dark legend that surrounds the stones.

There's no shortage of suspects, each with their own guilty secret, but what DS Fry and DC Cooper lack is any kind of motive. As they search separately for answers, it seems the reasons for the strange behaviour of the moor's inhabitants may lie somewhere in the past, in a terrible crime yet to be discovered...

`Includes several sinuous turns and surprises' Scotsman

`On this form, Booth could soon be up there with the likes of Reginald Hill. If you read only one new crime writer this year, he's your man' Yorkshire Post
