Description

From Crime Writers' Association Diamond Dagger Award winner Ann Cleeves comes The Glass Room, the fifth audiobook in the Vera Stanhope series. Published for the first time in the US. "I do love Vera!"-Val McDermid, bestselling author. "Ann Cleeves is one of my favorite mystery writers! I relish learning more about Vera with each book."-Louise Penny, New York Times Bestselling author of the Inspector Gamache series. DI Vera Stanhope is not one to make friends easily, but her hippy neighbors keep her well-supplied in homebrew and conversation, and somehow bonds have formed. When one of them goes missing, Vera tracks the young woman down to the Writer's House, a country retreat where aspiring authors work on their stories. Things get complicated when a body is discovered, and Vera's neighbor is found with a knife in her hand. Calling in the team, Vera knows that she should hand the case over. She's too close to the main suspect. But the investigation is too tempting, and she's never been one to follow the rules. Somewhere there is a killer who has taken murder off the page and is making it real...

Professional reviews

"Narrator Charlie Hardwick gleefully captures the grumpy personality, sharp tongue, and hidden heart of gold of Vera Stanhope, a police detective in the north of England. In this installment, Vera is investigating a murder at a writer's program, and the list of suspects includes Vera's hippie neighbor, Joanna. Hardwick's timing is impeccable for Vera's honest and self-deprecating humor. Periodically, the author shifts perspective, and Hardwick adjusts her accent and tone to distinguish the different characters. Vera's sidekick, Joe Ashworth, quietly questions Vera's conflict of interest and exhibits flashes of impatience. Hardwick adopts a softer tone for tutor Nina Backworth to denote the measured academic but adds fearful notes when Nina is threatened. A whodunit further elevated by an appealing and energetic narrator. A.B. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
