Publisher's Summary

An archaeologist studying on a site at Whalsay discovers a set of human remains. Is it an ancient find - or a more contemporary mystery? Then an elderly woman is shot in a tragic accident.

Shetland detective Jimmy Perez is called in by her grandson - his own colleague, Sandy Wilson. Mima Wilson was a recluse. She had her land, her pride and her family. As Jimmy looks to the islanders for answers, he finds instead two families whose feud has lasted generations. Surrounded by people he doesn't know, Jimmy finds himself out of his depth.

Then there's another death and Jimmy must dig up old secrets to stop a new killer from striking again...

    "Enjoying Ann Cleeves"

    I have only just discovered Ann Cleeves and am enjoying her books immensely. The storyline sucks you in nicely and I was sorry to come to the end of the book because I felt like I belonged with the characters

    "Really Engaging Village Mystery"
    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this story - I've read or listened to all of Ann Cleeves' Vera Stonhope mysteries, and loved every one. This was my first Jimmy Perez mystery, and I found it as well written, and well told, but softer somehow. Softer, by the way, is good.

    I was really in the mood for something nice. While this isn't really a cozy mystery, it has excellent characterization, sees Perez's young deputy grow up a bit, and really does a good job of portraying the folks in an island village.

    Oh - also a good little mystery!

    "Not appreciated enough"

    Like Cynthia Harrod-Eagles, Ann Cleeves is not publicised enough in North America. She has a wonderful sense of place, especially in The Shetland Quartet, and her writing is excellent. She creates wonderful characters and plots. I would like to see many more of her books available on Audible.com. The narrator of this series isn't my favourite and doesn't give a Scottish flavour to the dialogue, but is adequate and has a British accent. The quality of her books deserves the best narrators but shows through any flaws in that area.
