Publisher's Summary

Things are looking up for Detective Sanne Jensen and Dr. Meg Fielding. Dating each other seems to be working, their families are behaving themselves, and the worst of the post-Christmas crime wave is over.

The discovery of a Pakistani girl's body out on the moors changes all that. No one knows who she is, who hurt her, or how she came to be there. As pressure mounts on East Derbyshire Special Ops for a quick resolution, it becomes ever more apparent that the case won't provide one.

With the Pakistani community closing ranks, and threads of suspicion reaching farther than anyone could have predicted, the investigation leaves Sanne facing an ordeal she may not survive.

This series was amazing for gay women!!

I find very few interesting books to read that involve gay women that keep me reading. These were suspenseful and the perfect audiobook for long drives to work. I’ll now be reading/listening to all of Cari hunters books and praying there will be a 4th to the dark peak series!

What the bloody hell?? This story had me on pins and needles! Could not put it down!! I liked learning more about the Boss and her life -- and Sanne!! My word -- this detective really gets into her work! Good grief!! This should be on the BBC network!! This story line is brilliant and the writing extraordinary!! The reader is off the charts!! Want more and put this on TV and change nothing need good lesbian thriller on TV -- would be a huge hit -- if you want drama suspense and surprise read this book -- a must read!! Should be on tv I'm telling ya!! Great writing Ms Hunter -- more please!! A+++

Excellent Audible book.

I loved A Quiet Death. Absolutely fabulous. Great mystery, great romance, great banter between the detectives at work. Cari Hunter writing and Nicola Victoria Vincent narrating is an unbeatable combination.

Another fantastic story and excellent narration

Cari Hunter’s books are a breed apart and I’m totally addicted. They both terrify and delight me. This proved true once again with A Quiet Death. If you’re having a day (or a week, or a month, or – let’s face it, it’s 2020 – a year) where you have no faith left in humanity, maybe you should postpone reading or listening to it. Or not. Cari Hunter is so good at making things sound real that all I was thinking as I listened to Nicola Victoria Vincent narrating perfectly – as usual – is how awful people can be. How inhuman and soulless. Then just when my heart was on the verge of giving up and closing itself off to the world, there came Sanne and Meg, saving said world (or at least part thereof).

I know Cari Hunter doesn’t write romance but seriously, Meg and Sanne are one of the best, most plausible, hottest couples in lesfic. And they make all the terrible things happening in Hunter’s books – because, yeah, they’re thrillers and they’re scary AF – bearable, at least for me.

When A Quiet Death begins, Dr Meg Fielding and Detective Sanne Jensen are celebrating the “almost four weeks anniversary” of the relationship everybody (except them) knew they were meant to have. It’s business as usual for both on them on the work front, which means Sanne will yet again get in trouble. The discovery of the body of a young Pakistani girl on the moors turns out to be only the beginning of a difficult and heartbreaking investigation for Sanne and her colleagues, who, on top of that, find themselves navigating the slippery slope of police distrust in minority communities.

I get distracted easily, and that I never felt like taking a break from the story to check my emails or be silly on social media is another proof of Cari Hunter’s talent. The crime arc is splendidly gutting and dark as can be. Police procedurals can be monotonous (as is real police work, I guess), but Hunter keeps me captivated thanks to, as I wrote above, how real her characters are. Meg and Sanne, obviously, but also Nelson, who’s the partner any cop should have. I also felt my heart break with tenderness at the relationship between Sanne and her mother. I just love these people, flaws and all.

Hunter doesn’t write life as we’d like it to be. She writes the people who make it worth living.
