The Rising Tide By Ann Cleeves

The Rising Tide By Ann Cleeves


Fifty years ago, a group of teenagers spent a weekend on Holy Island, forging a bond that has lasted a lifetime. Now, they still return every five years to celebrate their friendship, and remember the friend they lost to the rising waters of the causeway at the first reunion.

Now, when one of them is found hanged, Vera is called in. Learning that the dead man had recently been fired after misconduct allegations, Vera knows she must discover what the friends are hiding, and whether the events of many years before could have led to murder then, and now . . .

But with the tide rising, secrets long-hidden are finding their way to the surface, and Vera and the team may find themselves in more danger than they could have believed possible . . .

My Thoughts:

This is the second book I have read by Anne and I cannot wait to read a lot more. This one was even better than the first one I had read. We follow Vera as she is investigating a hanging but what are the dead man’s friends hiding and what happened in the past that could of led to this happening. But as always there is very little time to work it all out. The suspense in this story really got to me, I was so drawn into this story that when I did come up for air I was still thinking about it. There are twists that are so unexpected they made me gasp and the ending was fantastically dramatic. The characters are all courageous and serious and they made the book shine aswell with Anne’s fantastic writing.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
