Dying to Sin by Stephen Booth

Dying to Sin by Stephen Booth
A Ben Cooper and Diane Fry Mystery
Publisher: Westlea Books

This 8th mystery in this series, originally published by HarperCollins in the UK, was never published in print in the US.

About Dying to Sin (from the publisher): When builder's labourer Danny Ward is asked to dig the foundations for a new wall during the conversion of Pity Wood Farm, he doesn't expect to find a human hand preserved in the clay. And when the police arrive to dig up the farmyard, they don't expect to find not one body, but two – with several years between their burials.

DS Diane Fry and DC Ben Cooper are part of the Derbyshire CID team tasked with piecing together the lives of the Sutton family who owned the farm before it was sold for development. Why would a pair of elderly brothers have the dead bodies of two women concealed on their property? And how do you even start tracking down decades of itinerant farm workers who might be able to cast light on the mystery?

With forensic evidence in short supply, Fry and Cooper have only the fragmentary memories of local people to rely on, including the landlord of the Dog Inn, the retired village bobby, and a handful of scattered neighbours in the White Peak settlement of Rakedale.

Their enquiry coincides with the arrival in Edendale of a new Detective Superintendent, and the threat of more shake-ups in 'E' Division CID that might separate Cooper and Fry permanently.

As Cooper becomes convinced that there ought to be a third body to provide the vital link and explain the burials at Pity Wood, Fry struggles to come to terms with one of the more unusual rural beliefs she's encountered so far — the magical properties of preserved body parts.
