New York Times bestseller Ann Cleeves returns with The Herons Cry, the extraordinary follow-up to The Long Call, soon to be a major TV series, alongside her two hit TV shows Shetland and Vera.


"In Matthew Venn, Ann has created a complex, daring, subtle character." --Louise Penny

A complex mystery full of surprises . . . this character-driven exploration of peoples darkest flaws is a sterling example of Cleeves formidable talents. --Kirkus Reviews

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 with a shard of one of his glassblower daughters broken vases.

Dr. Yeo seems an unlikely murder victim. Hes 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 soon finds himself treading carefully through the lies that fester at the heart of his community and a case that is dangerously close to home.

DI Matthew Venn returns in The Herons Cry, in Ann Cleeves powerful next novel, proving once again that she is a master of her craft.
