As New York Times bestseller Ann Cleeves' popularity explodes in print and on TV, this gripping e-short, "Frozen," will introduce readers to the inimitable DI Vera Stanhope.
For once, Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope is managing to have a good day off. Strolling around town, she ducks into a new bookshop in a renovated chapel. But just as she does, a skeleton is discovered in the old baptismal font. Soon, a decade old mystery is revived, and Vera must uncover secrets long buried before this case once again goes cold.
Good short story. Wished it was longer. Good story line.
Free and not worth it
If you take the first page or two of a Vera mystery and then the last pages you get this. Nothing in the middle, no explanations, no detecting. Vera sees the body and miraculously solves the case. Not worth the 15 minutes it took to read.
