Publisher Description

Ann Cleeves—New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of the Vera and Shetland series, both of which are hit TV shows—returns with The Raging Storm, the extraordinary third installment in the Matthew Venn series.

Fierce winds, dark secrets, deadly intentions.

When Jem Rosco—sailor, adventurer, and legend—blows into town in the middle of an autumn gale, the residents of Greystone, Devon, are delighted to have a celebrity in their midst. But just as abruptly as he arrived, Rosco disappears again, and soon his lifeless body is discovered in a dinghy, anchored off Scully Cove, a place with legends of its own.

This is an uncomfortable case for Detective Inspector Matthew Venn. Greystone is a place he visited as a child, a community he parted ways with. Superstition and rumor mix with fact as another body is found, and Venn finds his judgment clouded.

As the winds howl, and Venn and his team investigate, he realizes that no one, including himself, is safe from Scully Cove’s storm of dark secrets.

“A friend of mine once joked that the work of Ann Cleeves is the closest the crime fiction genre comes to evoking ASMR—the euphoric, pleasant, spine-tingling sensation that’s all the rage on YouTube. The books never get too dark, never venture too far into dangerous territory, but aren’t outright cozy, either.”—The New York Times

The Raging Storm

Another outstanding book by this awesome author!! I greatly enjoyed reading this book, and especially like the main character Matthew Venn. All the characters have interesting stories that captured my interest and held my attention as I read this book in one sitting.

Disappointing

I loved the first two Matthew Venn novels, but this one was half-baked, preposterous plot and uninteresting new characters. Even the main characters remained undeveloped from where they were in the second installment. Cleves needs to take a break.

The Raging Storm

Boring, too many characters and the characters aren’t developed enough to keep them all straight. Premise was poor. Wouldn’t recommend this book.
