Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* In the sixth of Cleeves’ Shetland Island series starring Inspector Jimmy Perez, a very controlled Scottish public prosecutor who seems passionate only about team-rowing, makes a discovery that threatens to tumble the Jenga-like structure of her life. The prosecutor, Rhona Laing, retrieves an unmoored boat and finds the body of a man seemingly placed across the seats, a briefcase next to the body. The dead man is a former local journalist who made good in London. The question facing Perez (who is inching his way back to work after the trauma of his fiancée’s death) and Willow Reeves, a detective inspector from the Inverness Serious Crime Squad sent to head the investigation, is what made the journalist a target? The answer has repercussions for the main characters, the tiny island of Aith, and for Scotland as a whole. Cleeves has an unusually deft hand with characters; not one of them seems purely plot-functional, and Perez’s character keeps deepening with each book. The rough islands cresting the Atlantic fit the bleakness of the murders depicted here. This series is one of two that Cleeves has going; the other stars Northumberland detective Vera Stanhope and is a hit BBC series. --Connie Fletcher

Review

“Cleeves returns to a sea-bound land of crofters' cottages, barren rocks and fog, especially the fog surrounding the murders...the well-constructed procedural grains another dimension from Jimmy's re-engagement with his work and his life.” ―Kirkus Reviews

“Cleeves has an unusually deft hand with characters; not one of them seems purely plot functional, and Perez's character keeps deepening with each book. The rough islands cresting the Atlantic fit the bleakness of the murders depicted here. This series is one of two that Cleeves has going; the other stars Northumberland detective Vera Stanhope and is a hit BBC series.” ―Booklist (starred)

“Absorbing...Cleeves keeps readers guessing until the final page.” ―Publishers Weekly

“Nothing short of riveting.” ―Louise Penny

“Creates a dark enough mood to keep you straining to see what will come to light next.” ―People

“In true Christie fashion, Cleeves once more pulls the wool over our eyes with cunning and conviction.” ―Colin Dexter

“Gripping from start to finish.” ―Booklist

“Deserves the top crime writer's prize in the United States this year. Don't miss this standout.” ―Rocky Mountain News

“A riveting read.” ―Val McDermid

“If you're a fan of Frances Fyfield, Minette Walters, or Val McDermid, get to know Cleeves.” ―The Globe and Mail (UK)
