    Our latest Ann Cleeves collection contains two Vera Stanhope novels (6, 7 and 8 in the series) and two of her Shetland books (6 and 7). Both of these series have been adapted into popular television dramas, but we believe the novels are even more compelling.

    The Vera (a character played by Brenda Blethyn) novels - The Seagull, Harbour Street and The Moth Catcher - find the clever but chaotic detective delving into a case that could destroy the close-knit community she lives in; on the trail of a killer who murdered someone on a packed train; and investigating the links between two bodies that are connected but found nowhere near each other.

    Shetland's Thin Air and Cold Earth find Detective Jimmy Perez (played in the series so perfectly by Douglas Henshall) on the case of a missing girl who claims to have seen a ghost of a child who drowned in the 1920s; and looking into a landslide that may or may not have killed his old friend Magnus Tait...

    This collection includes books 6, 7 and 8 in Ann Cleeves' Vera Stanhope series and 6 and 7 in her Shetland series.

    These appealing stories combine action, drama and a real warmth as they focus on Hiccup and his family as they grow up and enjoy all sorts of incredible adventures, battling evil enemies along the way. Your children will laugh, cry and be eagerly reaching for the next book as they work their way through this fantastic collection.
