DI Vera Stanhope arrives on the scene with her detectives Holly and Joe. When they look round the attic of the big house, Vera finds the body of a second man. As Vera is drawn into the claustrophobic world of this increasingly strange community, she realizes that there may be deadly secrets trapped here ...

The TV series, Vera, on PBS, is based on these novels by Ann Cleeves. As I read the dialogue I could hear the actress who plays Vera speak the words. I could also envision this actress throughout the novel trying to solve the murder mystery with her detectives, Joe and Holly. So the TV series stays true to the books even in the casting of the Vera. I was surprised the producers could find an actress that meets the author's description. I enjoyed reading rather than viewing this story. There were many red herrings so that at the end of the story, when all is revealed, the motive for the murder and the murderer is a surprise.

As expected from Ann Cleeves and her Vera Stanhope.Quirky and very well sustained.Fingers crossed for more of the TV series...
