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.

Vera enemy better in print(voice)!

I love watching Vera on TV. Ann Cleves magnificent novel about Vera is a reading (listening) treat beyond all. I never write reviews, I decided to write this one in hopes of convincing you to listen to this wonderful performance. I also hope that the rest of the Vera books are eventually recorded. And if that's the case, Please give the job of narration to Charlie Hardwick

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.
