Recorded live at the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival 2023
With three outstanding crime series, two much-loved television dramas, thirty-six novels translated into over twenty languages, and a legion of fans both in the UK and around the world, Ann Cleeves has enjoyed an almost unrivalled career.
As the creator of both Vera Stanhope and Jimmy Perez, the protagonists of Vera and Shetland, she has brought joy to millions. Ann’s novel The Long Call, the first in her Two Rivers series, was also successfully adapted for TV.
Ann’s new novel, The Raging Storm, is the third in the Devon-set series and sees DI Matthew Venn face up to ghosts from his past after the body of a celebrity adventurer is found in a dinghy anchored off a local cove.
Ann is interviewed by award-winning crime writer Vaseem Khan.
