Silent Voices
Silent Voices: A Vera Stanhope Mystery | Ann Cleeves
8 posts | 7 read | 4 to read
Ann Cleeves has thrilled readers everywhere with her critically acclaimed mystery series set in the Shetland Islands, which began with the award-winning Raven Black. Now, Cleeves is back with another compelling mystery series (set in Northumberland, England). This one features detective Vera Stanhope, the lead character played by Brenda Blethyn on the hit television series "Vera." Destined for the same kind of fame achieved by Colin Dexter's Inspector Morse, the show is a favorite of millions of viewers in the U.K. and is available here on Netflix, PBS, and Amazon. When Vera finds the body of a woman in the sauna of her local gym, she wonders briefly if, for once in her life, she's uncovered a simple death of natural causes. But when a closer inspection reveals bruises around the victim's throat, Vera's team start their investigation. Vera and her colleagues soon uncover details in the victim's past that may explain her untimely death. But Vera knows from experience that there's no such thing as a simple case, and this one gets more baffling by the minute. With pitch-perfect writing, a finely tuned mystery, and a protagonist with a complex past of her own, Silent Voices is a stand out penned by one of Britain's most successful mystery writers.

Another solid book in the Vera series. And as a newish supervisor, I can relate to her reluctance to delegate to others 😂😬

MelAnn I loved the Prey series by John Sanford!!! 2y
Andrew65 @MelAnn I love the series, but only got to the end of book 5 so far as difficult locally to get hold of the early books in the series. But have finally tracked down book 6. (edited) 2y
MelAnn If I still had mine I would send them to you! 2y
Andrew65 @MelAnn Bless, I usually manage to get hold of them eventually. 😊 (edited) 2y

I like the Vera Stanhope character because Ann Cleeves succeeds in making this fat, old, grumpy detective so human.
And for me, the plot of 'Silent Voices' is the best in this series so far.

Another Vera book finished. Good quick and entertaining read. Might have to put this series on hold while I try and whittle away at my neglected #tbrbingo

This is mystery author Ann Cleeves. She writes a series set in the Shetland Islands and another featuring Detective Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope. Both series have been adapted for TV. Ann was not only the International Guest Of Honor at Left Coast Crime this spring, but she is a tireless and vocal advocate for libraries everywhere. I enjoyed meeting and talking with her about that. She asked me great questions about libraries in my area!! ❤️

Lizpixie Oooohh, I'm so jealous! I love both of her series, books and tv.😍 3y
BethFishReads Cool. I love her books 3y
[DELETED] 2232195534 @Lizpixie If you ever get a chance to see her, take it. She is very welcoming. @BethFishReads There was a big auction for a literacy charity and she offered a character in an upcoming book, a visit to the Vera TV set and some other things. Raised a lot of money for an excellent cause. 3y
BlogginBoutBooks I'm in the middle of the Shetland series and really enjoy it. Have you read her other series? Is it as good as the Shetland one? 3y
