    Telling Tales doc ð Paperback ï ann cleeves Telling TalesIf The Crow Trap was the perfect teaser for Vera Stanhope then Telling Tales cements her as one of Britain’s most popular modern detectivesAs new evidence comes to light that Jeanie Long had been wrongfully convicted with the murder of schoolgirl Abigail Mantel DI Vera Stanhope travels to the East Yorkshire village of Elvet to uncover the truth as the real killer is still at largeVera’s presence is felt throughout the book her no nonsense direct approach really fits with the Northern settingThe Humberside location is vividly brought to life the coldness of the North Sea was felt throughoutThe setting perfectly captures the essence of the book a 15 year old girl murdered in a village of lies and deceitThere’s certainly a dark but compelling tone to this seriesAs this was Vera’s first full appearance I found myself mainly focusing on her traits and mannerismsThis meant the huge array of supporting characters started to blend together slight and it w

    Telling Tales doc ð Paperback ï ann cleeves Telling TalesTelling Tales is the second book in the Vera Stanhope series and I loved this one as much as the first Vera appears in this book much earlier than the first one I still didn't guess the murderer in this one either but had fun trying The ending really surprised me in this book and although I loved the first book I think I may have enjoyed this one even slightly better Another well written well paced engaging addition to the series I'm starting to feel a little sorry for Vera she appears to be lonely but doesn't tend to outwardly show this side of her much when she does she tends to dismiss it straight away I want to give her a big hug Another excellent read I am loving this series
