Dark Edges (Detective Charlie Cooper Mysteries Book 5)

by Catherine Lee
A football player in the prime of his life is found dead from an apparent drug overdose. Was it an accident, suicide, or something more sinister?

Detective Charlie Cooper is struggling just to keep awake after some upheaval on the home front. But life is busy for everyone, and Cooper is intrigued from the start with this baffling case. Jimmy Dallas was a rising star with everything to live for – would he really have stuck a needle in his arm the week before the biggest match of his career?

Joel Maguire for one does not believe his best mate would have knowingly injected himself with anything. Reeling from the shock loss, and dealing with some issues of his own, the Rangers’ star player struggles to put one foot in front of the other, let alone play finals football.

Australian rugby league takes centre stage in the fifth book of Catherine Lee’s page-turning series. Strap yourself in as Cooper and Quinn tackle the controversial issue of drugs in sport.
