About this deal

Publication information is for the USA, and (unless stated otherwise) represents the first print edition.

In this standalone that includes characters Joe and Holly, murder suspects drop their defenses before Colombo-like detective Vera Stanhope, a character who understands natives and criminals better than most—and who seems to carry a deep empathy for them all.

Ann worked as a probation officer, bird observatory cook, and auxiliary coastguard before she started writing. But what secrets was he about to reveal that would raise the ire in someone so much that murder was the solution? Raven Black was shortlisted for the Martin Beck award for best translated crime novel in Sweden in 200. You would think that an author that includes a plus sized woman as the main character and has done so for 10 books now (including a TV show, apparently) would understand the difference between fatphobia and plus sized representation.

The Darkest Evening reminds us that the novels are richer, fuller, and more satisfying than any episode of television can be. Learning that the dead man had recently been fired after misconduct allegations, Vera knows she must discover what the friends are hiding, and whether the events of many years before could have led to murder then, and now. Ann's Shetland series bring us DI Jimmy Perez, investigating in the mysterious, dark, and beautiful Shetland Islands. Fifty years ago, a group of teenagers spent a weekend on Holy Island, forging a bond that has lasted a lifetime.The rising and waning tides impose a parenthetical relationship upon both residents and the dwindling swell of tourists to the historic Holy Island of Lindisfarne in October.

Cleeves presents a myriad of suspects, trying to glean the motive, which is not at all obvious, and fully engages the reader. Learning that the dead man had recently been fired after misconduct allegations, Vera knows she must discover what the friends are hiding, and whether the events of many years before could have led to murder then – or now. If a person's not heavily into birds - and Ann isn't - there's not much to do on Hilbre and that was when she started writing.Vera knows she must find out what the friends are hiding and whether the events of the past and present are connected. Auf Holy Island (früher Lindisfarne) in Northumberland trifft sich seit fünfzig Jahren alle fünf Jahre eine Gruppe ehemaliger Schüler zu einem Klassentreffen.
