    When Jimmy Dallas was found in his apartment with the syringe still in his arm, the conclusion was either suicide or overdose. But was it? His best friend and fellow rugby league star, Joel Maguire was devastated – but knew without any hesitation that Jimmy wouldn’t have done either. Joel’s team was the Sydney Rangers and they were heading into the finals, but Joel knew there was no way he could play football with Jimmy’s death hanging over him. All he wanted to do was find answers…

    When Jimmy Dallas was found in his apartment with the syringe still in his arm, the conclusion was either suicide or overdose. But was it? His best friend and fellow rugby league star, Joel Maguire was devastated – but knew without any hesitation that Jimmy wouldn’t have done either. Joel’s team was the Sydney Rangers and they were heading into the finals, but Joel knew there was no way he could play football with Jimmy’s death hanging over him. All he wanted to do was find answers…

    Detective Charlie Cooper and his partner, Detective Joe Quinn headed the investigating team and gradually they came to suspect there was much more to Jimmy’s death than was first thought. Was there an illegal drugs connection with the Rangers team? Secrets, drugs, crime – Cooper and Quinn had a lot on their hands; they needed to find answers fast. But with no solid evidence to back up their claims, the teams’ frustration was high. Could they find the culprits before someone else died?

    is the 5th in the Cooper & Quinn series by Aussie author Catherine Lee and I thoroughly enjoyed it, flying through the pages, and finishing in a matter of hours. The twist at the end was totally unexpected but good! Cooper and Quinn are excellent characters and I really hope the author doesn’t stop writing their story for a very long time to come! The inclusion of Cooper’s home life adds to it as well. Highly recommended - #6 soon 😊

The readers of Dark Edges will continue to follow Detective Sergeant Charlie Cooper and Detective Senior Constable Joe Quinn investigation into the death of Jimmy Dallas to find out what happens.

    I loved reading Dark Edges. I have read others in the A Cooper & Quinn Mystery series, and Dark Edges did not disappoint. Dark Edges engaged me with the plot from the first chapter, and I was so surprised with who the murder was. I love Catherine Lee portrayal of her characters and the way she intertwines them with each other. Catherine Lee does a great job of highlighting the problems and issues that law enforcement families have with the demands of the work of a police detective.

    The readers of Dark Edges will learn what the consequences of gambling are to everyone involved. Also, the readers of Dark Edges will learn about the procedures during a police investigation.

    I recommend this book.

    This starts with footballer Jimmy Dallas injecting himself. He is found dead. Is it suicide or an accidental overdose. His friends say he would never use heroin, but everything points to exactly this.

    Cooper & Quinn now have the challenge to prove this is a murder. Jimmy’s best friend, Joel Maquire, is one who is sure that Jimmy would not take drugs & finds it hard to accept. Joel’s brother, Nate is the team captain. What does Nate know.

    The book takes us through the world of a football team playing for a spot in the finals. Have drugs been used in the team? The team sports scientist, Dean Rycroft assures them he has only provided vitamins & all appears to be clean through the stringent drug testing agency ASADA. All Cooper & Quinn have to go on is assumptions & the fact that the heroin used by Jimmy is the same as that supplied by the Chiefs Motor Cycle gang to the streets. Is there an association between Dean Rycroft & the Chefs MC?

    Congratulations Catherine on another interesting twist. I highly recommend this to all who enjoy a good thriller.

    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 setting of a mystery in which it is not even clea

    All of this is the setting of a mystery in which it is not even clear whether our detective duo are dealing with a murder case.

    ‘Jimmy Dallas was good at following instructions.’

    Jimmy Dallas, an Australian Rugby League football player, is found dead from an apparent drug overdose. The needle is still in his arm. Is it an accidental overdose, murder or suicide? Detective Sergeant Charlie Cooper and his partner Detective Senior Constable Joe Quinn are called in to investigate. Jimmy Dallas was the fullback for the Sydney Rangers team, a star performer in their last match, a win which guaranteed them a place in the finals.

    ‘Jimmy Dallas was good at following instructions.’

    Jimmy Dallas, an Australian Rugby League football player, is found dead from an apparent drug overdose. The needle is still in his arm. Is it an accidental overdose, murder or suicide? Detective Sergeant Charlie Cooper and his partner Detective Senior Constable Joe Quinn are called in to investigate. Jimmy Dallas was the fullback for the Sydney Rangers team, a star performer in their last match, a win which guaranteed them a place in the finals. No one close to Jimmy thinks he’d use heroin, but everything points to a self-administered overdose. Jimmy’s best friend is fellow Rangers player Joel Maquire. Joel is devastated by Jimmy’s death. Joel’s brother Nate is the team captain. Can the Maguire brothers shed any light on events?

    As part of their investigation, Cooper and Quinn look at drug use within the Rangers Club. The officials try to assure them that all is fair and above board. ASADA has no adverse results from testing team members, and the team sports scientist Dean Rycroft assures them that the only supplements given to players are vitamins. But Cooper and Quinn are not convinced, and when they find a connection between the heroin used by Jimmy and that supplied by the Chiefs outlaw motorcycle gang, things start to get complicated.

    ‘He had a bad feeling about this case.’

    This is the fifth novel in Ms Lee’s Dark Series, and it is every bit as gripping as the first four. There are some interesting developments in Charlie Cooper’s personal life which add to the tension as Cooper and Quinn try to work out what happened to Jimmy Dallas. There’s also some friction between different police officers involved in the case. And the ending? There are aspects that I didn’t anticipate, disquieting aspects that have served to keep aspects of this novel in my mind.

    Note: my thanks to Ms Lee for providing me with a free advance reading copy of this novel for review purposes.

    A very satisfying read. Cooper and Quinn are doing fine again. This time it's about the use of drugs in sports. Halfway through it wasn't difficult to guess who the second culprit was.

    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!

    is match fixing and drug taking in sport, not an issue that really interests me but it was not hard to follow what was going on. The idea behind the mystery was good and the identity of the murderer was not easy to spot until quite close to the end.

    Altogether an interesting and entertaining read and I am already looking forward to the next one - which I believe is already published. Keep writing them Ms. Lee!

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