Product Description


“I do love Vera!” ―Val McDermid

“It's easy to admire Vera's brainpower…her adventures have been a hit on British television, and readers devoted to Cleeves' tales of Jimmy Perez will want to give Vera a try.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“A nice mixture, in the British tradition, of social comedy and detective work. More Vera, please.” ―Booklist (starred review)

--This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

By L. J. Roberts TOP 500 REVIEWER on July 12 2014
Format: Hardcover
First Sentence: Vera swam slowly.

It’s not every day a police inspector finds a dead body sharing a sauna with her in a hotel health club, especially when that body is of a murder victim. Vera and her team work to find a killer in a village filled with people, and their secrets.

From the very first paragraph, one is caught up in the author’s voice; her dry humor and the character. By the end of the first chapter, on is also caught up in the story.

There is so much one could say about the characters, particularly Vera. How nice it is to have a female protagonist such as Vera. She’s a mature woman, overweight and unconcerned about her appearance—except, not totally unconcerned. She does care about being fair to her team, knows what motivates each of them, and is a very good leader; even though she drives them hard. She’s respected by her colleagues, even when they frustrate her. The relationship she has with Joe, her sergeant, is an interesting one…”Sometimes Vera though he represented her feminine side. He had the empathy, she had the muscle. Well, the bulk.” Even with the suspects, she doesn’t just investigate clues, but motivations; what makes people do what they do, what drives them.

Cleeves has a very interesting style. Although the story is told in 3rd person, when she focuses on Vera, it switches somewhat to first person as we gain insight on her life and character through an internal monologue and her observations…”These days, people expected senior female officers to walk straight out of “Prime Suspect.”

There is a very strong sense of place and wonderful descriptions. Particularly appealing is the contrast between the town and the desolation of Vera’s home. It’s very much part of her character.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By M. Elyse St George on April 2 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I liked the fact that some of the characters are involved in routine social work, and the motivation appears to lie there instead of being just peripheral.The characters are particularly well drawn and Vera and Joe are consistent, if prickly, in their duty and off-duty interaction. The plot is, as usual, a good, well defined and an intriguing trail to the end.

The story moves fast with lots of twists and turns. Keeps you guessing right up to the end. I enjoyed the book even though I had already seen the TV show.
