Description

‘Matthew Venn is a keeper . . . stunning’ David Baldacci The number one Sunday Times bestselling series featuring Detective Matthew Venn, from author and creator of the Vera and Shetland series, Ann Cleeves – soon to be a major TV series. North Devon is enjoying a rare hot summer with tourists flocking to its coastline.

Detective Matthew Venn is called out to a rural crime scene at the home of a group of artists.

What he finds is an elaborately staged murder – Dr Nigel Yeo has been fatally stabbed.

His daughter Eve is a glassblower, and the murder weapon is a shard of one of her broken vases. Dr Yeo seems an unlikely murder victim. He’s a good man, a public servant, beloved by his daughter.

Matthew is unnerved, though, to find that she is a close friend of Jonathan, his husband. Then another body is found – killed in a similar way.

Matthew finds himself treading carefully through the lies that fester at the heart of his community and a case that is dangerously close to home . . . The Heron’s Cry is the second novel in Ann Cleeves’ Two Rivers crime series, following her Sunday Times bestseller, The Long Call.
