"In Matthew Venn, Ann has created a complex, daring, subtle character." —Louise Penny "A complex mystery full of surprises . . . this character-driven exploration of people's darkest flaws is a sterling example of Cleeves' formidable talents." — Kirkus Reviews North Devon is enjoying a rare hot summer with tourists flocking to its coastline.

Then another body is found—killed in a similar way. Matthew soon finds himself treading carefully through the lies that fester at the heart of his community and a case that is dangerously close to home. DI Matthew Venn returns in The Heron's Cry , in Ann Cleeves powerful next novel, proving once again that she is a master of her craft.
