A 'Sunday Times' bestseller in the UK, LOST RIVER is the 10th novel in the multiple award-winning Cooper & Fry series, set in England's beautiful and atmospheric Peak District. A May Bank Holiday in the Peak District is ruined by the tragic drowning of an eight-year-old girl in picturesque Dovedale. For Detective Constable Ben Cooper, a helpless witness to the tragedy, the incident is not only traumatic, but leads him to become involved in the tangled lives of the Nields, the dead girl's family. As he gets to know them, Cooper begins to suspect that one of them is harbouring a secret - a secret that the whole family might be willing to cover up. Meanwhile, Detective Sergeant Diane Fry has a journey of her own to make - a journey back to her roots. As she finds herself drawn into an investigation of her own among the inner-city streets of Birmingham, Fry realises there is only one person she can rely on to provide the help she needs. But that man is Ben Cooper, and he's back in Derbyshire, where his suspicions are leading him towards a shocking discovery on the banks of another Peak District river...

This was the most engaging book in this series I’ve read so far. The twin plots – Cooper investigating the drowning of a little girl and Fry facing a traumatic event from her past – captured my interest right from the start. Like the other books in the series, this story is complex, well thought out, and twisty.

Which leaves me in a love-hate relationship with Stephen Booth.

Because, while he tells a very good story, he fritters away way too many words giving us travelogues, describing urban and rural environments, and detailing Cooper’s and Fry’s interior monologs. In this book, he devotes almost 2 pages to telling us how Ben Cooper came up with a name for his new cat. Really?

I’ve never been able to skim the dull sections of a book. I wish I could but I’m not wired that way. So I slog through page after page dull stuff, muttering, ‘Get back to the story!’ to get to the good parts.

Booth needs an editor strong enough to implement a scorched earth policy when it comes to preparing his books for publication.

Still these stories are so good, I can’t stop reading them.

I love the Cooper and Fry mysteries, having read about 10 of them. For those unfamiliar with the series, there are 3 main characters, Diane Fry, an uptight and emotionally frozen detective sergeant; Ben Cooper, a detective in her squad, who is described in one of the earliest books as being too nice to be a cop; and the third "character" being the Peak District in England where the novels are mostly set, which is a semi-wild area with mostly small villages and farms and wilderness areas. The interplay between Cooper and Fry is always interesting, because they are pretty much polar opposites both professionally and personally, and the descriptions of the District are fascinating. This one, like all of them, is, of course, a murder mystery, but with an overlay this time of Fry's return to Birmingham to rid herself of one of her demons, her rape while on duty with the Birmingham police, while Cooper solves a murder that no one but him thinks exists.

You really should, if possible, begin reading the Cooper & Fry novels from the very first. I'll not give to much away here, but Fry takes a much needed holiday to Birmingham to meet some of the characters that she's leaned to exit herself from and contend with 'her past.

This novel, I think, gives us the keys to Diane's past and a bit more empathy for her character.

Back home in Edendale, Cooper has some frights of his own but a few high lights as well.

SPOILER ALERT:

Cooper is promoted the an Acting Detective Sergeant early in the book but that “Acting” name is taking aware just a the novels end! Hooray for Ben! That's DS Cooper now!

All of us have things that we'd rather not remember. DS Diane Fry is going to get her day in court to confront the violence which lead to her move to Derbyshire. DC Ben Cooper will try to save a young girl who "accidentally" drowns. However, all is not as it seems for either of them. Diane must confront her real and foster family histories to find out what really happen to her and who was involved. Ben must solve the riddle of a not so perfect family while suffering the after effects of failing to save a child. Blood is sometimes thicker than water but to be honest, a lot of us might not have anything to do with our family if we weren't related to them. We learn a lot more about Fry and Birmingham.

This book has Fry going to Birmingham to close up the past. It is a mindboggling set of actions she has to go through with her sister to clear up most of her past. Cooper is left in charge so he has to make do with Murfin and the 3 trainees. Although well fit for the role he learns quickly how much side work besides investigating that the job takes. His future looks brighter but his love life becomes more complicated. His attempt to save a drowning child haunts him throughout the book. If you just need to jump ahead this book would not ruin the other books for you. Should be a worldwide best seller.A great, yes, a great read..shu

I've loved every book in this series: the writing is superb, the characters in depth, the settings magnificently described. "Lost River" provides a deeper understanding of Diane's past, for both reader and for Ben Cooper. She's worth knowing better. And as usual, the case Ben stumbles upon during a Bank Holiday dovetails beautifully with the cold case Diane must reconcile herself with in her old Birmingham stomping grounds. If you haven't discovered this series yet, run, don't walk, to get a copy of "Black Dog" and immerse yourself in the Peak District of England.

I give all Stephen Booth's books five stars because he is one of my favorite authors. Everything of his I've read has been riveting, surprising, and suspenseful; qualities that are difficult to find all at the same time in one book. I'll continue to buy this book and others written by him. I care about the characters and am often reluctant to put the book(s) down, and am somewhat sad when they end because I want to know what will happen next.
This book was one of the best so far...the characters of Cooper and Fry have evolved even more.

There are two story lines in this book - Cooper being unable to save a young girl and Fry looking into her past and the memories that haunt her.

I thought this was an excellent story...and hard to put down.
