The Darkest Evening by Ann Cleeves is the ninth entry in the Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope series but it reads well as a stand-alone. I’m a little embarrassed to admit that this is my first Vera book, after having enjoyed the television series for many years. I now intend to read the rest of the series as well as other series by Ann Cleeves. The story begins with Vera Stanhope on her way home on a stormy winter’s night. On the road home, she spots a car on the side of the road. The driver’s door is wide open, indicating that the driver left quickly. She soon realizes that a baby has been left in the car, abandoned by whoever the driver was. She brings the baby to the closest home which turns out to be Brockburn, an estate owned by the Stanhopes, estranged relatives of Vera. This is the only shelter in this terrible storm for her and the baby and ring the bell she must. Soon the evening turns from bad to worse when a body is discovered on the property and it looks like a case of murder. Vera calls in her people and the investigation begins. This unusual police procedural has great characters and a plot like no other. The Darkest Evening is a most enjoyable read. Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for the e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. ( )

THE DARKEST EVENING is Book #9 in Ann Cleeves’ award—winning Vera Stanhope series.
THE DARKEST EVENING is an excellent addition to the series. Our main character, Vera Stanhope, is written in a bit more of a reflective light, with insights into her family, her father Hector, her life as a child and personal thoughts of mortality.
Vera is a very favorite detective of mine (and thousands more readers). Her very complex character comes alive in the books and ITV television series, VERA.
This particular title is brilliantly written, well-paced and full of characters. Vera and her Team are adept at solving very complex puzzles. Holly and Joe act as both foils and compliments to Vera’s character.
A very good read. **** ( )

Being a long-standing fan of both Vera and Shetland TV series, investigating Ann Cleeves' novels was a no brainer. Thanks to a NetGalley ARC of The Darkest Evening (#9 in the Vera Stanhope series), I now have 4 Cleeve novels under my belt, including the first one of her new series, and haven't been disappointed.

I love mysteries but cozy and historical mysteries are more to my liking. The Vera Stanhope series are police procedurals but The Darkest Evening has a slight "Christie-esque" quality. The story is set in a snowy Norththumberland winter complete with a country estate owned by Vera's wealthy relatives, but that's where the Agatha Christie resemblance ends. Vera sure isn't Miss Marple she's a cop so things can get a little gritty and usually do. An abandoned baby, family backstories, plot twists and turns, and Vera in more danger than usual made this a compelling mystery. If you're not familiar with the series, The Darkest Evening is a good standalone.

This is 4 in a row for Cleeves where I never had a clue (pun intended) as to 'who done it'. A well-crafted story and that surprise keeps Cleeves on the top of my TBR mystery list. ( )

The Darkest Evening is the ninth in the Vera Stanhope series. It begins during a blizzard. Vera is driving home and mistakes her turn. She finds a car has driven off the road. The driver is gone, the door of the car wide open, and in the back seat an infant in a car seat. Vera takes the child, leaving her card for the missing driver, and drives to the nearest home, one she knows well as it’s the childhood home of her father. It is a source of bad memories and embarrassment as her father only went there when he wanted money. Shortly after she arrives, a neighbor comes on his tractor telling everyone he found a body.

The investigation starts out fairly wide especially when the mother’s close friend, a former teacher, is murdered, but soon comes to center on the Stanhopes and the two families nearby.

The Darkest Evening is an excellent mystery. There were plenty of red herrings and misdirection. I love how the detective’s assumptions about women and what they want in a relationship misled them. I also love learning a little bit more about Vera and her family.

The mystery is completely fair. The story is exciting and one that was hard to put down. In fact, i didn’t. I read it from start to finish.

I received an e-galley of The Darkest Evening from the publisher through NetGalley

Another terrific story from the master storyteller, made even more enjoyable by her interview with Ben from Our Bookshop in Tring. Apparently when she begins writing she has no idea how it will progress and end-amazing! This story finds Vera unintentionally visiting her distant relations when she gets lost in a snowstorm and comes across an abandoned car and young child who she takes to the nearest house.The story is about families and relationships and what binds them together and drives them apart.
