Description

Winner of the 2017 Crime Writers' Association Diamond Dagger.

Silent Voices is the fourth book in Ann Cleeves' Vera Stanhope series - which is now a major ITV detective drama starring Brenda Blethyn, Vera.

When DI Vera Stanhope finds the body of a woman in the sauna room of her local gym, she wonders briefly if, for once in her life, she's uncovered a simple death from natural causes. Then Vera spots ligature marks around the victim's throat - death is never that simple . . .

Vera revels being back in charge of an investigation again, working with Sergeant Joe Ashworth to find a motive. While Joe struggles to reconcile his home life with the demands of the case, death has never made Vera feel so alive.

The duo investigates the victim's past and discovers a shocking case, involving a young child. Probing the secretive community, they try to stop a killer in the present who can't seem to let go of the past . . .

Enjoy more of Vera Stanhope's investigations with The Crow Trap, Telling Tales, Hidden Depths, The Glass Room, Harbour Street, The Moth Catcher, and The Seagull.

Review quote

Cleeves is quietly carving out a reputation as the new Queen of Crime. * Sunday Mirror * Millions will be familiar with Brenda Blethyn's portrayal of Vera in the television series of the same name but Cleeves' engaging prose provides a much deeper, subtler insight into an intriguing and likeable character. * Daily Express * All the elements of Agatha Christie at her best. -- Sharon Bolton
