Praise for Dead Water:
"Cleeves returns to a sea-bound land of crofters' cottages, barren rocks and fog, especially the fog surrounding the murders...the well-constructed procedural grains another dimension from Jimmy's re-engagement with his work and his life." —Kirkus Reviews
“Cleeves has an unusually deft hand with characters; not one of them seems purely plot functional, and Perez’s character keeps deepening with each book. The rough islands cresting the Atlantic fit the bleakness of the murders depicted here. This series is one of two that Cleeves has going; the other stars Northumberland detective Vera Stanhope and is a hit BBC series.” —Booklist (starred)
"Absorbing...Cleeves keeps readers guessing until the final page." —Publishers Weekly
Praise for the Shetland Island series:
“Nothing short of riveting." —Louise Penny
"Creates a dark enough mood to keep you straining to see what will come to light next." —People
"In true Christie fashion, Cleeves once more pulls the wool over our eyes with cunning and conviction." —Colin Dexter
"Gripping from start to finish."
"Deserves the top crime writer's prize in the United States this year. Don't miss this standout."
--Rocky Mountain News
"A riveting read."
"If you're a fan of Frances Fyfield, Minette Walters, or Val McDermid, get to know Cleeves."
---The Globe and Mail (UK)
Praise for the Vera Stanhope series
"Excellent . . . Intricate plotting makes for a compulsive read.”
—The Independent (UK)
“Detective Vera Stanhope is a remarkable creation.”
