"Ann Cleeves-New York Times bestselling and award-winning author of the Vera and Shetland series, both of which are hit TV shows-returns with the extraordinary follow-up to The Long Call, in the Two Rivers series, soon to be a major TV series too. North Devon is enjoying a rare hot summer with tourists flocking to its coastline. Detective Matthew Venn is called out to a rural crime scene at the home of a group of artists. What he finds is an elaborately staged murder--Dr Nigel Yeo has been fatally stabbed with a shard of one of his glassblower daughter's broken vases. Dr Yeo seems an unlikely murder victim. He's a good man, a public servant, beloved by his daughter. Matthew is unnerved, though, to find that she is a close friend of Jonathan, his husband. 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"--… (més)

I am a fan of Vera and Shetland yet I have not read any of Ann Cleeves' novels, until now. The Heron's Cry is the followup to The Long Call, the Two Rivers series, with Detective Matthew Venn who is tasked with solving the death of Dr. Nigel Yeo. The murder was elaborately staged with the murder weapon being a shard of glass. The glass was from a vase that his daughter, Eve, who is a glassblower had made.

Detective Venn's co-workers DS Jen Rafferty and DC Ross May are pivotal to the solving of the case. Just when you think that you know who did it, another body turns up. The man, Wesley Curnow, also lives at the place where Dr.Yeo's daughter lives and works. He was also stabbed with a glass shard from a work of Eve's.

Dr.Yeo was a director at North Devon Patients Together organization, he was investigating the suicide death of a young man. Could he have gotten too far in his investigation and known why the young man, Alexander 'Mack' Mackenzie supposedly killed himself? As the clues lead the detectives in one direction, more clues come up that send them off in another direction.

Lots of characters and suspects in this story, Eve Yeo, and Jen who spent some time the night before Dr.Yeo was murdered. He had wanted to talk in-depth with Jen but didn't really say what he wanted to talk about. Ross who has some issues of his own at home and Detective Venn, his husband, artsy Jonathan. Then there is Frank Ley, who owns the complex for the artists, a rich philanthropist. On the land is also a farm that John and Sarah and their children live on and run.

There is a Suicide Club that encourages troubled people to commit suicide. Venn and his team must also investigate how this club has to do with his suicide of Mack. How does all this become involved with the murders of Dr.Yeo and Wes?

This second in the series is well written, not a fast read but well worth it. Like I said a lot of characters to keep track of and their motives. North Devon is a small community where everyone knows everyone else but they keep to themselves. So it is a difficult thing to try to solve a series of murders, which Detective Venn and his team have to do and do it fast before there are more deaths.

I do intend to read more by Ann Cleeves, I love how the British tell a murder story! I highly recommend reading this series and anything else you can get your hands on by this author.
I give it 5 stars.

I received a copy for review purposes only. ( )

Once again in the Two Rivers series, Ann Cleeves is demonstrating that she is at the top of the game when it comes to enthralling police procedurals. Her investigators (Vera Stanhope, Jimmy Perez and Matthew Venn) are situated in distinctive locales (Northern England, Shetland Islands and North Devon, respectively) that often impact the course of the story. Her depth of detail, her feeling for the environment and the local people, can't help but leave the impression that she has lived in each of these places her entire life.

Matthew Venn is as complicated a character as the other two . He's gay, married to a man with a personality that is the opposite of his, and haunted by his fundamentalist upbringing. And he's a cracking good DI. His team includes single mother DS Jen Rafferty and pushy young DC Ross Pritchard, both of whom are presented warts and all, but nonetheless engaging.

The plot in this one is pretty convoluted, with a few more coincidences than I'm normally comfortable with. But between Cleeves' explorations of the local cultural and political issues and the way she maximizes the wild and beautiful settings, it was a super read all around. I'll be ready for the next one when it comes around! ( )

Good enough and I like Matthew Venn but the plot seems overly contrived. ( )

I have read every book in Ann Cleeve's "Vera" series and her "Shetland Island" series more than once and bought all the DVDs in both series. I always thought it would be impossible that anything she wrote would be less than the quality of these two series. I was excited when book #1, The Long Call, the first book in the new Two River's series, first came out. New series, new characters to become acquainted with and learn all their little quirks, short comings and likes and dislikes. The book was okay, but the character of Detective Mathew Venn who was supposed to be this series "Vera" was hard to like. He came across as moody and dull...but I was patient with him. He seemed like a bit of a "know it all' and sometimes gave the impression that he was the only capable one on his team. I did like his husband, Jonathan though, and hoped that maybe Jonathan would mellow him. Now we have book #2 in the series. The murder victim and the murder itself was interesting...but, poor Matthew still doesn't have an interesting bone in his body. Perhaps Ms. Cleeves is starting him out slow and plans to develop him more fully as the series goes along. Vera wasn't always the most understanding or likeable character either, but she had personality...and hunky Jimmy Perez was...well he just WAS. I will try book #3 and hope I will be able to hang on long enough for Matthew to "develop". Maybe "interesting" Jonathan can get his own series or join Matthew's team, or better yet take over and let Matthew man the home fires and make the tea. ( )

Interesting and atmospheric, Ann Cleeves gives her readers time to get to know her characters. Matthew and his patience, Jen and her insights and ambitious Ross. She paints a picture of the community that live in the seaside area. The story is twisted and lots of people die but the bad guys are eventually found. ( )
