The Seagull by Ann Cleeves

Shrewd.  Smart.  Challenging.  Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope is on the case.

When prison inmate and former police officer John Brace says he’s willing to give up information about a long-dead wheeler dealer in return for protection for his family, Vera knows that she has to look into his claims.

But opening up this cold case strikes much closer to home than Vera anticipates as her investigation takes her back in time to The Seagull, a once decadent and now derelict nightclub where her deceased father and his friends used to congregate.

As Vera’s past collides dangerously with the present, she will have to confront her unwanted memories and face the possibility that her father was involved in what happened.  The truth is about to come out but is Vera ready for what it will reveal?

The Seagull is Ann Cleeves’ searing eighth novel in the bestselling Vera Stanhope series, about corruption deep in the heart of a community, and about fragile, and fracturing, family relationships.

Peer & Press Reviews

I loved The Seagull – quite simply it reminds me why Ann Cleeves is one of my favorite mystery writers!  I relish learning more about Vera with each book, and The Seagull provides fresh insight into one of our most complex and lovable sleuths.

Louise Penny, author of the Chief Inspector Gamache series

Nobody does unsettling undercurrents better than Ann Cleeves.

Val McDermid

An excellent, atmospheric mystery.  Ann Cleeves is our Queen in the North, and The Seagull another jewel in her crown.

Mick Herron, author of the Jackson Lamb Thriller series
