As riveting as Peter Robinson. As nerve-jangling as Peter James. Dead And Buried. Arson: Brutal acts of fire-starting have ravaged the Peak District, and now a new wave of moorland infernos sweeps across the national park. For DS Ben Cooper, the blazes are best left to the fire-fighters, even with the arsonists still at large.
Burglary: But when an intruder breaks into an abandoned pub, Cooper is on the case - and he swiftly unearths a pair of grim surprises. The first is evidence of a years-old double homicide. And the second is a corpse, newly dead....
Murder: What links the three deaths? Where are the missing bodies? Who is responsible - and how do the raging fires fit in? For Cooper and his rival DI Diane Fry, it's the most twisted investigation of their lives...and with an ingenious killer pulling the strings, it could also be their last. Drenched in atmosphere and danger, Stephen Booth's relentless new thriller builds to a shock finale that will catch even the most seasoned suspense readers off guard.

So depressing and so repetitive
Not really. Every single book in this series gasses on and on and on about all the place names the Peak District, and waxes rhapsodic about what a super special it is. We get it already. Move on. Plus the dynamic between Diane Fry and Ben Cooper never seems to change or develop. She's a bag and he's a pushover. Duly noted. The whole series is getting hackneyed.
No, for the reasons noted above. Character development is sadly lacking, and I feel like the scenery is its own (major) character.
I like his Gavin Murphin. Completely captures the character.
I used to love this series, but there is no longer anything original about it, and the characters haven't developed in any meaningful way.
