Publisher Description

Telling Tales is the second book in Ann Cleeves’s Vera Stanhope series – which is now a major ITV detective drama starring Brenda Blethyn as Vera .

They thought she was a murderer. But now she’s a victim . . .

Ten years ago fifteen-year-old Abigail Mantel was murdered, her cold body discovered lying in a ditch. Her father’s girlfriend was found guilty of the crime. Now, evidence has emerged that proves her innocence and means that Abigail’s killer still roams free.

Abigail’s best friend at the time of the murder has now returned to the East Yorkshire village of Elvet to raise her young family. Shocked by the new revelations, she begins to realize that she didn’t know her friend as well as she thought . . .

Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope is tasked with uncovering the truth and, as her new inquiries stoke up past secrets the villagers will lie to protect, she must find out which lies will bring her to the killer.

Enjoy more of Vera Stanhope's investigations with The Crow Trap, Hidden Depths and Silent Voices.

Telling Tales

As always enjoyed the gradual reveal of characters, never quite knowing "who done it"! However, I find the whole 'reveal' is almost in the last few pages and I am left wanting to know more in depth...why! ....how! The character in this hardly gets a mention until the end! Having said that a good read but end feels a bit flat and sudden.
