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.

Peak Cleeves

Absolutely riveting debut for Ann Cleeves’ new detective hero. As a fan of the Vera and Shetland books, I wondered how I would react to this new character. I needn’t have worried. The book didn’t disappoint. Ann Cleeves never does.

Overwrought

Loved the Vera Stanhope novels but the plot in this debut novel, seemed overwrought to me. I didn’t find the main characters gay relationship convincing either.
