Vera Stanhope

Detective Inspector Vera Stanhope may not be the first person you’d think of for a heroine: she’s overweight, a bit rough around the edges, and her staff knows when to stay out of her way. Vera’s crime-solving skills, however, are more than a match for the darkly fascinating cases that cross her path. Ann Cleeves’s flawed detective won over fans of police procedurals in both the U.S. and U.K. in Harbour Street and Silent Voices. The bestselling and critically acclaimed Vera Stanhope series has been made into the hit series Vera, starring Brenda Blethlyn.
