Description

In 1987 Tim, Ann and their two daughters moved to Northumberland and the north east provides the inspiration for many of her subsequent titles. And, as is usual in these books, the conclusion of the case brings its own poignancy and heartache to the investigative team. Sadly, tragedy struck the reunion event when Isobel's car was caught by a high tide and she drowned.

Plus some good moments as the protagonists contemplate the fact they are coming to the ends of their lives and wondering whether they should have taken different decisions in the past. BookBrowse seeks out and recommends the best in contemporary fiction and nonfiction—books that not only engage and entertain but also deepen our understanding of ourselves and the world around us.Vera knows exactly how to lead her team to get the best out of each of them, and Cleeves doesn’t do things without having a purpose. In this 10th novel in the Vera Stanhope series, the intrepid sleuth investigates a suspicious death on Holy Island, a tourist destination off the west coast of Scotland.

Who doesn’t love ‘large and shabby’ Vera Stanhope, the blunt detective in Ann Cleeves’s Northumberland police procedurals? Als Leiterin des Teams geht es auch schon mal so weit, dass sie einen Job selbst erledigt, wenn der Mitarbeiter ihn noch nicht gemacht hat. She went on to set up reading groups in prisons as part of the Inside Books project, became Cheltenham Literature Festival's first reader-in-residence and still enjoys working with libraries. It’s a well written novel with a plot that goes at a brisk pace and which is extremely well thought out, it thickens and deepens taking us on a twisty journey backwards and forwards across the causeway to Holy Island. I think perhaps you should go and tell her, so she can be triumphant, and then start to get the investigation moving.Alle eint eine gemeinsame Vergangenheit: Vor fünfundvierzig Jahren bei dem ersten Klassentreffen war ein Mädchen tödlich verunglückt. Cleeves turns the location of Holy Island, that simply drips with atmosphere, into a wonderful central background character, popular with tourists, with its menacing mists and fogs, and the dangers of the rising tide. Who doesn't love "large and shabby" Vera Stanhope, the blunt detective in Ann Cleeves's Northumberland police procedurals? In this, the tenth in Anne Cleeve’s excellent series, Vera find’s herself on the lovely but isolated island of Lindisfarne…. I was excited for this to be released and was really enjoying it until I got to the part where an important plot point is a young woman's false accusation of sexual harassment.
