ANN CLEEVES is the multi-million copy and New York Times bestselling author behind two hit television series--the BBC's Shetland, starring Douglas Henshall, and ITV's Vera, starring Academy Award Nominee Brenda Blethyn--both of which are watched and loved in the US. The Long Call, the first in the Two Rivers series introducing Detective Matthew Venn, was an instant New York Times bestseller. Shetland is available in the US on Netflix, Amazon Video, Britbox and PBS, and Vera is available on Amazon Video, BritBox and PBS. The first Shetland novel, Raven Black, won the CWA Gold Dagger for best crime novel, and Ann was awarded the CWA Diamond Dagger in 2017. She lives in the UK.
"I do love Vera!" --Val McDermid "It's easy to admire Vera's brainpower...her adventures have been a hit on British television, and readers devoted to Cleeves' tales of Jimmy Perez will want to give Vera a try." --Kirkus Reviews "A nice mixture, in the British tradition, of social comedy and detective work. More Vera, please." --Booklist (starred review)
