A sleazy MP and his “fixer” are on a helicopter flight over the Lake District piloted by two former RAF pilots.
It should be a safe journey. The helicopter is top of the range, luxurious, and relatively new.
So why did the tail rota come off.
The ensuing crash kills all on board and people on the ground who are taking part in a Fell Run
DI Kelly Porter is just finishing off in a high profile court case which has seen her pitched against her “ex” boyfriend.
When the call comes in about the crash they are thrown together by circumstance. She’s SIO for the Police investigation, and he’s part of the mountain rescue team.
Porter conducts her investigation and attempts to keep other agencies in line, whilst dealing with the inevitable political pressures which are brought to bear on the investigators.
The conundrum of which of the four dead people on the helicopter was the intended target is the major factor. They all have secrets in their past.
I really enjoy this series. Rachel Lynch gets the mix just right for me. The investigation takes centre stage, but the lives of the characters, and the ongoing story of Porters private life leads to great read.
The setting of the Lake District is perfect. Close enough to big towns and cities, but remote enough to cause the difficulties found in tackling rural crimes, and disasters in almost inaccessible places
