Publisher's Summary

When Inspector Vera Stanhope finds the body of a woman in the sauna room of her local gym, she wonders briefly if, for once in her life, she's uncovered a simple death from natural causes. But a closer inspection reveals bruises around the victim's throat, and Vera quickly realizes she has a murder on her hands.
Silent Voices will thrill fans of Ann Cleeves's best-selling Shetland Island mysteries as well as traditional mystery lovers looking for a new smart police procedural with emotional heft.

Long Live Vera

I first "discovered" Vera Stanhope on TV. The extraordinary actress Brenda Blethyn brings her completely to life. Anxious to see if the books were as good, I was glad to see that Audible features one of her adventures - I certainly am hoping for more!

Vera is a dedicated, persistent investigator. She's also a loner, inept in social situations; a poor dresser; and a woman with demons from her past. Sound familiar? Well, she may not be the only such character in mystery fiction, but she is one of the most interesting.

"Silent Voices" follows a very complicated path to a very complicated conclusion. Maybe a bit too complicated - but Vera and her team make it well worth the journey.

I will look for more Cleeves

A very enjoyable read/listen. I had enjoyed the Shetland mysteries and decided to try one from another series. I love Vera! She's not an antihero, but she is certainly a non-traditional heroine. What fun to read about a real person, one with brains to spare, but also with real foibles.
