Reviews

"Atmospheric and well-wrought." --Publishers Weekly

"It's easy to admire Vera's brainpower. . . her adventures have been a hit on British television, and readers devoted to Cleeves' tales of Jimmy Perez will want to give Vera a try." --Kirkus Reviews

"A nice mixture, in the British tradition, of social comedy and detective work. More Vera, please." --Booklist (starred review)

"Excellent . . . Intricate plotting makes for a compulsive read." --The Independent (UK)

"Detective Vera Stanhope is a remarkable creation." --Bookseller (UK)

"Cleeves has hit the big time . . . This is going to be a winner!" --BBC Front Row (UK)

"The Moth Catcher is set in the picturesque part of Vera's bailiwick. The great strengths of Cleeves' writing are the beautiful and convincing characterization and the storming story line." --Crime Squad

"Ann Cleeves is a skillful technician, keeping our interest alive and building slowly up to the denouement. Her easy use of language and clever story construction make her one of the best natural writers of detective fiction." --Sunday Express (UK)

"If you're a fan of Frances Fyfield, Minette Walters, or Val McDermid, get to know Cleeves." --The Globe and Mail (Canada)
