Content descriptions

General Note: "Introducing Detective Matthew Venn"--Cover.
Summary, etc.: In North Devon, where two rivers converge and run into the sea, Detective Matthew Venn stands outside the church as his father's funeral takes place. Once loved and cherished, the day Matthew left the strict evangelical community he grew up in, he lost his family too. Now, as he turns and walks away again, he receives a call from one of his team. A body has been found on the beach nearby: a man with a tattoo of an albatross on his neck, stabbed to death. The case calls Matthew back into the community he thought he had left behind, as deadly secrets hidden at its heart are revealed, and his past and present collide. An astonishing new novel told with compassion and searing insight, The Long Call will captivate fans of Vera and Shetland, as well as new readers.

    The body on the beach in Devon was identified quickly as Simon Walden. He was staying rent-free at a home in the area, and he helped in the kitchen at the Woodyard Centre. Simple enough . . . just find out who blew his face away. But Detective Inspector Matthew Venn's investigation only reveals more mysteries. Turns out Walden wasn't a charity case but a respected chef who had run his own restaurant. And he'd just closed a real-estate deal that netted him a small fortune. He'd befriended a young woman with Down syndrome. He brought her candy. She perceived no threat. The case is personal for Venn, a gay man whose husband manages the Woodyard. Author Cleeves spends more than 200 pages setting this up, in prose as evocatively bleak as the Devon coast. Cleeves announces the plot's shift into high gear by revving the language: The clouds ripped apart to let through shafts of sunlight. As usual with this talented author, the key is relationships, and the murder is an occasion to examine them and then, finally, to expose what rips them apart. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
