The Heron's Cry (Two Rivers #2)
Ann Cleeves, New York Times bestselling author and creator of the Shetland and Vera series, returns to North Devon in the second book in the Two Rivers series featuring Detective Matthew Venn, following The Long Call. North Devon is enjoying a rare hot summer with tourists flocking to its coastline. When Detective Matthew Venn is called out to a rural crime scene at the home of a group of artists, he finds 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 Eve 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 series following her New York Times bestseller, The Long Call.
