The Crow Trap, Paperback / softback Book

The Crow Trap Paperback / softback

Part of the Vera Stanhope series

Description

Winner of the 2017 Crime Writers' Association Diamond Dagger. The Crow Trap is the first book in Ann Cleeves' Vera Stanhope series - which is now a major ITV detective drama starring Brenda Blethyn, Vera. Three very different women come together at isolated Baikie's Cottage on the North Pennines, to complete an environmental survey.

Three women who each know the meaning of betrayal . . . Rachael, the team leader, is still reeling after a double betrayal by her lover and boss, Peter Kemp.

Anne, a botanist, sees the survey as a chance to indulge in a little deception of her own. And then there is Grace, a strange, uncommunicative young woman, hiding plenty of her own secrets. Rachael is the first to arrive at the cottage, where she discovers the body of her friend, Bella Furness.

Bella, it appears, has committed suicide - a verdict Rachael refuses to accept. When another death occurs, a fourth woman enters the picture - the unconventional Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope . . . Enjoy more of Vera Stanhope's investigations with Telling Tales, Hidden Depths, Silent Voices, The Glass Room, Harbour Street, The Moth Catcher, and The Seagull.
