Author: Ann Cleeves

Pub date:  September 3rd 2019 
For the first time in 20 years, Ann Cleeves—international bestselling and award-winning author of the Vera and Shetland series, both of which are hit TV shows—embarks on a gripping new series.
In North Devon, where two rivers converge and run into the sea, Detective Matthew Venn stands outside the church as his father’s funeral takes place. Once loved and cherished, the day Matthew left the strict evangelical community he grew up in, he lost his family too.

Now, as he turns and walks away again, he receives a call from one of his team. A body has been found on the beach nearby: a man with a tattoo of an albatross on his neck, stabbed to death.

The case calls Matthew back into the community he thought he had left behind, as deadly secrets hidden at its heart are revealed, and his past and present collide.

An astonishing new novel told with compassion and searing insight, The Long Call will captivate fans of Vera and Shetland, as well as new readers.
 

My thoughts
Rating: 2
Would I recommend it? no
Will I be reading more of this series? no
Would I read anything else by this author ? maybe
The rating would have been higher but there was times the story was slow and boring and I didn't care about what was going on with the characters ,or what was even happening , for some reason it just wasn't holding my attention and it didn't keep me pulled into the story at all with that said I want to thank Netgalley and St. Martins for letting me read and review it exchange for my honest opinion .
