S6 E1: Detective drama series based on the novels by Ann Cleeves. Vera investigates the mysterious death of Anne-Marie Richards, whose body is discovered by a young girl on the wild and desolate Northumberland moors. Anne-Marie has recently returned from Scotland to attempt a reconciliation with her two daughters. Then a 999 call on the night of the murder and the disturbed state of her cottage suggest that she may have been abducted by someone she knew. The fractious relationship between the victim and her family arouses Vera's suspicions. Who has been posting abusive comments about Anne-Marie online? Did she have a connection to the Newcastle businessman who has been spending time on the coast? What Vera and her team do not know is that this event will have long-term and devastating effects on all of them.
