Blackwell North Amer It wasn't the easiest way to commit suicide. Marie Tennent seemed just to have curled up in the freezing snow on Irontongue Hill and stayed there until her body was frosted over. And hers isn't the only death the police have to contend with - not after the discovery of a baby in a burned-out air-force bomber, and the body of a man dumped by a roadside. Snow and ice have left 'E' Division depleted and Diane Fry is forced to partner DC Gavin Murfin. She and Ben Cooper were never a match made in heaven, but next to Murfin, working with Ben starts to look like a dream. But Ben's on a trail of his own - and one as cold as the Peak District in January. In the winter of 1945 an RAF bomber crashed on Irontongue Hill killing everyone except the pilot, who walked away and disappeared. Now his grand-daughter is in Derbyshire desperate to clear his name, and Ben can't help taking an interest. But is a fifty-year-old mystery really the best use of police time? Or does a vicious attack in the dark Edendale backstreets prove that the trail's not quite as cold as he'd thought? Could the past be the only clue to present violence as an icy winter looks set to get even chillier?
