The long call

Image of item
Large Print Book

Large print edition.

In North Devon, where two rivers converge and run into the sea, Detective Matthew Venn stands outside the church as his estranged father's funeral takes place. When Matthew left the strict evangelical community he grew up in, he lost his family too. Now, as he turns and walks away again, he receives a call from one of his team. A body has been found on the beach nearby: a man with a tattoo of an albatross on his neck, stabbed to death. The case calls Matthew back into the people and places of his past, and as deadly secrets are revealed, his new life is forced into a collision with the world he thought he'd left behind.
