This bumper collection provides the perfect introduction to Ann Cleeves' bestselling stories. It contains five novels in the Vera series (adapted into a hit ITV drama starring Brenda Blethyn) and five books from the Shetland series (adapted by the BBC into a popular show starring Douglas Henshall).

Available for an unbelievable Book People price, the first five books in the Vera series follow Vera Stanhope as the detective investigates a series of strange occurrences across the North Pennines. She starts by joining three very different women as they arrive at an isolated cottage to complete an environmental survey. But when they get there, they find the body of one of Bella's friends... Vera also makes fresh inquiries into the decade-old case of the murder of a 15-year-old girl; and investigates the disappearance of her hippy neighbour.

Set in the remote community of the Shetland Islands, the five Shetland books follow Jimmy Perez as he encounters all manner of evil characters. He finds his neighbour left for dead after being strangled; looks into the case of an amnesiac's 'suicide'; and has to deal with the discovery of a woman's body at the supposed sanctuary of the Fair Isles bird observatory.

Gripping from first page to the last! -

Fantastic price for all these books.
Thoroughly enjoyed the Vera series but in my opinion, the Shetland series were the best. The description of the terrain and the slow build-up of tension was completely absorbing and spent many a waking time in the night just telling myself... one more chapter and then I must go to sleep...
I am sorry that the TV series changed some important details that deviated from the novels. Perez was olive skinned from his Spanish inheritance and his love interest was not as described in the book...
I haven't enjoyed a book for years as much as this series. Read it now, especially as there is an offer, too!

Such a treat and so well written -

These books are so well written and entertaining I'm enjoying every single one of them. I must admit I got stuck a few pages into the glass room and found it too boring at the time. But all the others are amazing. I'm reading telling tales at the moment and it's a riveting read and very well constructed.

Ann Cleeves Collection -

Fabulous value collection. Selection of the Vera Stanhope books and also the Shetland Series. Thoroughly enjoyed both selections. As both sets of books have now been adapted as TV series I can visualise the cast when reading the books!
