Ann Cleeves


*Limited number of signed copies available while stocks last
Edition contains either a signed bookplate or signed title page.

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’.
