Publisher's Summary

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.... 

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.

Another good one

Really enjoyed this one. Had a couple of inklings of where the plot was going but couldn’t quite grasp it until near the end. Really enjoying these books.

Had me hooked

First Ann Cleeves book I have listened to. I enjoyed the TV series so thought I would give this a try. The story was captivating and I intended to only listen to it when I was traveling but instead listened at every available opportunity. Will look forward to my next Ann Cleeves book.

Ok

I love the Vera novels but struggled to get into this one for the main reason I didn’t really care about any of the characters and had difficulty remembering who was who at times. Also the setting was uninspiring compared to some of the other books. However, that being said it’s an ok listen with all the bits you expect from Vera.

So much better than tv adaptation!

l loved listening to this story! It was a little confusing at times as I had watched the TV program which varied quite a bit from the original. This was so much better!
The characters were so well developed, the plot had many twists & turns, and the outcome satisfying. Vera's attitude and rueful sense of humour are enjoyable and I enjoy hearing her thought processes, which of course we are not privy to on TV.
LOVED IT!!

Tried hard to finish it!

I tried very hard to finish this book, however found the over acting of the narrator for different characters extremely annoying... I gave up trying to finish and purchased another book.

Silent voices

I love Ann Cleeves and her books. Vera is terrific such a cranky woman with a lot of problems but solves crimes well.
The narrator Janine Burkett was really good. Changing her voice to fit with all characters.
Very enjoyable indeed.
