Descripción: From Ann Cleeves―New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of the Vera and Shetland series, both of which are hit TV shows―comes the stunning tenth Vera Stanhope novel, The Rising Tide, a powerful novel about guilt, betrayal, and the longheld secrets people keep.A New York Times and USA Today Bestseller!"Ann Cleeves is one of my favorite mystery writers."―Louise PennyFor fifty years a group of friends have been meeting regularly for reunions on Holy Island, celebrating the school trip where they met, and the friend that they lost to the rising causeway tide five years later. Now, when one of them is found hanged, Vera is called in. Learning that the dead man had recently been fired after misconduct allegations, Vera knows she must discover what the friends are hiding, and whether the events of many years before could have led to murder then, and now . . .But with the tide rising, secrets long-hidden are finding their way to the surface, and Vera and the team may find themselves in more danger than they could have believed possible . . .ReviewA USA TODAY Bestseller!PEOPLE Best Fall Books!AARP.com Best Fall BooksOne of Mystery Tribune's "18 Best Crime, Mystery, and Thrillers of September"“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…. This is the work of a pro ― a diverting, solidly crafted mystery that’s guaranteed to entertain.”―New York Times Book Review"Vera…roots her way to the truth with the charm of a next-door neighbor and the steely resolve of an army general.”―The Wall Street Journal“What a pleasure to be back in the hands of Ann Cleeves… it is a joy to watch a writer as skilful as Cleeves lay out her version of a locked room mystery. As ever, Cleeves goes deeper, examining the precarious nature of life and what it is to age and face your own mortality. I’m still absolutely reeling…”―The Guardian“As she always has, Ann Cleeves really grabbed my attention with her latest book, The Rising Tide. And didn’t let go... Vera Stanhope is one of the literary world’s most realistic detectives… This just might be my favorite Vera book, at least thus far.”―Free-Lance Star"The Rising Tide picked up the pace dramatically as it headed for a crashing conclusion. Eager to ID the killer and find out why early reviewers were commenting as they were, I turned to the book for the final chapters. That’s the definition of a page turner."―St. Louis Post-Dispatch"A thrilling tale with an ending that catches you by surprise, it’s a story both newbies to Vera and diehard fans will enjoy. 9/10"―The Independent"A character-driven puzzle that ends in a painful denouement."―Kirkus (Starred)“Haunting… Flawed characters take center stage in an intense novel with a shocking conclusion.”―Library Journal (Starred)"Cleeves crafts a clever central puzzle, then confers remarkable emotional complexity using her keenly drawn characters’ advancing age, wistful nostalgia, and thorny shared history. A pinwheeling third-person narrative drives the pace, while Vera’s candor tempers the plot’s darker elements. Fair-play mystery fans will delight."―Publishers Weekly"The engrossing plot delves into the friends' reminiscences, which seem innocuous but possess an underlying menace. Vera--blunt, intelligent, frumpy and obsessive yet deeply affectionate toward her team--continues to prove her investigative mettle. A visit with Vera--whether in the series or via the television adaptation, now in its 11th season--is always welcome."―Oline Cogdill, Shelf AwarenessPraise for The Darkest Evening:"Who doesn’t love “large and shabby” Vera Stanhope, the blunt detective in Ann Cleeves’s Northumberland police procedurals?
