This event has now sold out. Click here to add your name to our waiting list.

Award winning author of the Vera and Shetland series, Ann Cleeves, returns with the second in her brand new Two Rivers series set in North Devon featuring Detective Matthew Venn.

North Devon is enjoying a rare hot summer with tourists flocking to its coastline.  Detective Matthew Venn is called out to a rural crime scene at the home of a group of artists.  What he finds is an elaborately staged murder – Dr Nigel Yeo has been fatally stabbed.  His daughter Eve is a glassblower, and the murder weapon is a shard of one of her broken vases.  Dr Yeo seems an unlikely murder victim.  He’s a good man, a public servant, beloved by his daughter.  Matthew is unnerved though to find that she is a close friend of Jonathan, his husband.  Then another body is found – killed in a similar way. Matthew finds himself treading carefully through the lies that fester at the heart of his community and a case that is dangerously close to home . . .

The Herons Cry is the second Two Rivers series following the sensational number one bestseller, The Long Call, now in production for ITV drama.
