Waterstones Says

The murder of a local celebrity in a village clouded by superstition presents Matthew Venn with his most challenging case yet in this gripping addition to Cleeves' Two Rivers series.

Longlisted for the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year 2024

Detective Matthew Venn returns in The Raging Storm, the next captivating novel in the Two Rivers series from Ann Cleeves, the number one bestselling author and creator of Vera and Shetland.

When Jem Rosco – sailor, adventurer and local legend – blows into town in the middle of an autumn gale, the residents of Greystone, Devon, are delighted to have a celebrity in their midst. The residents think nothing of it when Rosco disappears again; that’s the sort of man he is.

Until the lifeboat is launched to a hoax call-out during a raging storm and his body is found in a dinghy, anchored off Scully Cove, a place with legends of its own.

This is an uncomfortable case for DI Matthew Venn. He came to the remote village as a child, its community populated by the Barum Brethren that he parted ways with, so when superstition and rumour mix and another body is found in the cove, Matthew soon finds his judgement clouded.

As the stormy winds howl and the village is cut off, Venn and his team start their investigation, little realizing their own lives might be in danger . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS

As a huge fan of both the Shetland and Vera series of books, I had high expectations for Cleeves’ latest. Matthew Venn is a keeper. A stunning debut for Cleeves’ latest crimefighter - David Baldacci on The Long Call

Had me hooked — a promising beginning to another fine chapter in the Ann Cleeves story - The Times on The Long Call

Clever, compassionate and atmospheric, with a great cast of new characters to love. I am already a Matthew Venn fan - Elly Griffiths on The Long Call

A triumph that cements Cleeves’ status as one of Britain's best crime writers - Daily Express on The Long Call

Brilliant, thoughtful and deeply engaging - Sara Paretsky, New York Times bestselling author of the V.I. Warshawski series on The Long Call

Ann Cleeves’ new series gets off to a terrific start with The Long Call – her native Devon is wonderfully evoked, and Matthew Venn is a very appealing new detective. Another sure-fire hit - Martin Edwards, author of Gallows Court, on The Long Call

Cleeves combines a flair for evoking sense of place with a thoughtful, complex plot - Mail on Sunday on The Long Call

The troubled Venn is a great protagonist, and Cleeves may well have created her next top TV cop - Heat Magazine on The Long Call

A traditional mystery of the best sort - The Guardian on The Long Call

Evocative and gripping – an absolute triumph - Daily Mirror on The Long Call

“Okay”

The third book in the two rivers series is well written with a decent plot. However I felt book two was too similar to the first but on reading book three I've realised that actually it's the characters I... More
