Meanwhile, Detective Credule Grand-Duc is all set to end his life but then he comes across a secret that could change everything...

    Black Water Lilies finds one murder leading to another and has all kinds of twists revolving around a previously undiscovered Monet masterpiece; and Don't Let Go finds a man's wife going missing. He didn't kill her so why is he acting so guilty?

    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.

    In River of Darkness, it's 1921 and there's been a terrible murder at a manor house in Surrey. The victims have all been stabbed and the lack of disturbance in the house suggests the attack was one of terrifying speed. While the police force are ready to put the murders down to robbery and violence, Madden sees things differently - he's sure this is the work of a psychopath...

    The Blood Dimmed Tide finds Madden on the trail of a killer who is a master of reinvention; and The Dead of Winter takes place in late 1944 when a young Polish girl who worked on Madden's farm winds up dead...
