From Ann Cleeves—New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of the Vera and Shetland series, both of which are hit TV shows—comes Harbour Street.

“Ann Cleeves is one of my favorite mystery writers.”—Louise Penny

As the snow falls thickly on Newcastle, the shouts and laughter of Christmas revelers break the muffled silence. Detective Joe Ashworth and his daughter Jessie are swept along in the jostling crowd onto the Metro.

But when the train is stopped due to the bad weather, and the other passengers fade into the swirling snow, Jessie notices that one lady hasn't left the train: Margaret Krukowski has been fatally stabbed.

Arriving at the scene, DI Vera Stanhope is relieved to have an excuse to escape the holiday festivities. As she stands on the silent, snow-covered station platform, Vera feels a familiar buzz of anticipation, sensing that this will be a complex and unusual case.

Then, just days later, a second woman is murdered. Vera knows that to find the key to this new killing she needs to understand what had been troubling Margaret so deeply before she died - before another life is lost. She can feel in her bones that there's a link. Retracing Margaret's final steps, Vera finds herself searching deep into the hidden past of this seemingly innocent neighborhood, led by clues that keep revolving around one street...Harbour Street.

Told with piercing prose and a forensic eye, Ann Cleeves' gripping novel explores what happens when a community closes ranks to protect their own-and at what point silent witnesses become complicit.

As with all the books in the Vera Stanhope series by Ann Cleeves the characters are developed and interesting. I find I'm as interested in the lives of the cast s I am in the solution to the mystery. Ann Cleeves is, without a doubt, one of my favorite authors. The narration in this production is outstanding. Her ability to audibly interpret the individuals is a huge addition to the enjoyment of this particular book. The previous post indicates only two books in this series are available but we've listened to 4 of the 8 and , I believe, there's one more available on Audiobooks.com. That being said, I'd like to see them all become available, as well!

I truly enjoyed listening to this book. Loved the Yorkshire accent of the narrator. However, there are only two books of this series on Audiobooks. Can you get the rest too, please?
