review 1: The best of the series, I couldn't put it down. If you enjoyed the BBC series, you will enjoy the book even more but don't expect the same plot. The plot was similar but it's a bit like those "spot the difference" games kids do or even it's negative, the same but the opposite. A...

review 1: As you expect, it's well plotted and convincing. When I read a book, one of the things I look for is: Do the characters stay with me afterwards? And Ann Cleeves does female characters well--Nina Backworth is so alive, so warm and so convincing that I could almost travel to the No...

review 1: This was a wonderfully relaxing read,which perhaps shouldn't be the case for a detective novel. Truth to tell neither the victims, nor their partners and friends, were likeable in any way - in fact, they were all pretty one-dimensional. By far the most interesting characters we...

review 1: This was my review for Kaiwaka Library...Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope's neighbour Joanna disappears from her home, and her husband is concerned enough to ask Vera to take a look and see what she can find. Not an onerous task for her, but as Vera approaches the house where Jo...
