The Long Call

DUE IN SEPTEMBER Ann Cleeves continues to thrill by offering up a new series with an intriguing new character destined to hook her fans. Detective Matthew Venn finds himself back in the North Devon of his youth after having been estranged from his strictly evangelical family. In a new job as Detective and recently married to his husband Jonathan, Venn investigates the murder of a man on the beach, and finds himself confronting the pain of his own past.  Venn is surrounded by a team of intriguing characters and, as usual, Cleeves is superb in evoking place. This is a cracker-jack new mystery series: It’s intelligent, atmospheric and suspenseful. Recommended by Sarah
