"Vera" fans: We're giving away a book a day!

Haven’t had a chance to meet "Vera" yet? Now is the perfect time to tune-in. You can start from the beginning as KCET broadcasts Season One of “Vera” starting Sunday, July 3 at 10 p.m.

And to celebrate all things "Vera," KCET will be giving away one copy of the book, Silent Voices -- A Vera Stanhope Mystery, autographed by its author, Ann Cleeves, every day in July. So come on and enter – you have 31 chances to win your very own autographed copy of this thrilling mystery book (California residents only)!

Here’s more about the series:

Academy Award nominee and BAFTA winner Brenda Blethyn ("Secrets and Lies"; "Atonement") stars as Chief Inspector Vera Stanhope in the American Public Television-distributed detective series "Vera". Vera is an experienced and brilliant murder investigator in the North East England county of Northumberland. Kind-hearted but an inherent loner, Vera freely admits she can become obsessed with her job; driven by her own demons, the detective faces the world with caustic wit, guile, and courage.
