    A hot summer on the Northumberland Coast, and Julie Armstrong arrives home from a night out to find her son murdered. Luke has been strangled, laid out in a bath of water, and covered with wild flowers. This stylised murder scene has Inspector Vera Stanhope and her team intrigued. But then a second body, that of beautiful young teacher Lily Marsh, is discovered in yet another watery, flower bestrewn grave.

    So pleased I chose this one. Vera is Terrific!

    Wonderful characterisation throughout this novel. This is especially true of the main character, Inspector Vera Stanhope. I have absolutely no doubts..Show More »

    When DI Vera Stanhope finds the body of a woman in the sauna room of her local gym, she wonders briefly if she's uncovered a simple death from natural causes. But a closer inspection reveals ligature marks around the victim's throat...Vera pulls her team together and sets them interviewing those connected to the victim, while she and colleague, Sergeant Joe Ashworth, work to find a motive.

    Brilliant Narration!

    I loved the fact that this book was read by a Geordie. It was perfect!
    The story wasn't filled with car chases and gun shots or superfit tanned..Show More »

    When one of DI Vera Stanhope's hippy neighbours goes missing, she feels duty-bound to find out what happened. It's an easy job to track the young woman down to a country retreat where aspiring authors gather to work through their novels. It gets complicated when a body is discovered and Vera's neighbour is found with a knife in her hand. Calling in the team, Vera knows that she should hand the case over to someone else, but the investigation is too tempting.

    Great listen

    Life seems perfect in Valley Farm, a quiet community in Northumberland. Until a shocking discovery. The owners of a big country house have employed a young ecologist named Patrick to look after the place while they're away. But Patrick is found dead by the side of the lane into the valley. DI Vera Stanhope arrives on the scene with her colleagues. When they look round the attic of the house - where Patrick has a flat - she finds a second body.

    Brilliant as always....

    I really enjoyed all.of the twists and turns in this one. There had to be a link, but it was well hidden until the end.

    West Country Wildlife's birdwatching package to America has presented tour guide Rob Earl with the perfect opportunity for a reunion with his old college friends Mick Brownscombe, now working in Texas, and Oliver Adamson. Rob's tour party is hoping for spectacular sights at High Island on the Upper Texas coast. But as the birds descend, the party is greeted with a far more shocking sight - the dead body of Mick Brownscombe.
