Publisher Description

Now a major ITV series, The Long Call, adapted for television by screenwriter Kelly Jones and starring Ben Aldridge.

The Long Call
is the
No.1 bestselling first novel in the Two Rivers series from Sunday Times bestseller and creator of Vera and Shetland, Ann Cleeves.

In North Devon, where the rivers Taw and Torridge converge and run into the sea, Detective Matthew Venn stands outside the church as his father's funeral takes place. The day Matthew turned his back on the strict evangelical community in which he grew up, he lost his family too.

Now he's back, not just to mourn his father at a distance, but to take charge of his first major case in the Two Rivers region; a complex place not quite as idyllic as tourists suppose.

A body has been found on the beach near to Matthew's new home: a man with the tattoo of an albatross on his neck, stabbed to death.

Finding the killer is Venn's only focus, and his team's investigation will take him straight back into the community he left behind, and the deadly secrets that lurk there.

Not a page turner. Vera and Jimmy Perez benefited from good acting in the TV series. I don’t think this is in the same leagur

The Long Call

Boring book of boring people. The only interesting thing about it is how the author imagines so many people can be superb actors. The lead detective is the least interesting or believable “hero” ever.

Another absorbing page turner from this accomplished writer. I really enjoyed meeting these new characters and will be eager to be the next one in the series
