Telling Tales Summary


Telling Tales by Ann Cleeves

Winner of the 2017 Crime Writers' Association Diamond Dagger

Telling Tales is the second book in Ann Cleeves' Vera Stanhope series - which is now a major ITV detective drama starring Brenda Blethyn, Vera.

Ten years after Jeanie Long was charged with the murder of fifteen-year-old Abigail Mantel, disturbing new evidence proving her innocence emerges in the East Yorkshire village of Elvet. Abigail's killer is still at large.

For Emma Bennett, the revelation brings back haunting memories of her vibrant best friend - and of the fearful winter's day when she had discovered her body lying cold in a ditch.

Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope makes fresh inquiries, and the villagers are hauled back to a time they would rather forget. Tensions begin to mount, but are people afraid of the killer, or of their own guilty pasts?

Enjoy more of Vera Stanhope's investigations with The Crow Trap, Hidden Depths, Silent Voices, The Glass Room, Harbour Street, The Moth Catcher, and The Seagull.

Telling Tales Reviews


Cleeves is quietly carving out a reputation as the new Queen of Crime. * Sunday Mirror *
Ann Cleeves is a skilful technician, keeping our interest alive and building slowly up to the denouement. Her easy use of language and clever story construction make her one of the best natural writers of detective fiction. * Sunday Express *
If you're a fan of ITV's crime drama Vera, you'll love the books that inspired the series. * S Magazine *
Millions will be familiar with Brenda Blethyn's portrayal of Vera in the television series of the same name but Cleeves' engaging prose provides a much deeper, subtler insight into an intriguing and likeable character. * Daily Express *
