  • Phrynne
    Book Five in this excellent and very readable series.I really enjoy the characters of Cooper and Quinn, our police duo and main characters in the series. Cooper and his wife solve their problems in this book in the best possible way but now there are hints that all is not roses in Quinn's life. I guess this will be pursued in Book Six!The social issue addressed in Dark Edges is match fixing and drug taking in sport, not an issue that really inter...

    In Dark Edges, Catherine Lee delves deeper into the medical accompaniment of sports people. In view of recent scandals of supplements and state sponsored doping this book very much gives you something to think about how athletes are used as guinea pigs and how much say they have about what happens to their own bodies and their own health. Not to forget that the long-term effects of a lot of these products are very much unknown. All of this is the...

    Not impressed. Too far fetched, not very well written. Found myself reading just to get finished.
