Summary

When Shetland detective Jimmy Perez finds a body in a hut used by fishermen, it seems to be a straightforward case of suicide. He recognises the victim - a stranger with amnesia who had disrupted a local party the night before his death. Yet this is no desperate act of anguish but the work of a cold and calculating killer. 

As Perez investigates, he finds himself mired in the hidden secrets of the small Biddista community. Then another body is found. Perez knows he must break the cycle before another death occurs. But this is a crazy time of year, when night blurs into day and nothing is quite as it seems....

Convoluted

A bit long winded to the point of being a bit boring at times. I’m all for a good Whodunnit but the ending was far fetched and unbelievable. Shame. I will try the next in series to see if it restores my faith but it may be the last in the Shetland ones for me if it’s like this one.

Brilliant

Another superb thriller, the background painted in words of the life of the Shetlands, another great narration. It was hard to see who had committed the crimes, it was an unexpected outcome. Highly commended.

Never saw that coming!

Excellent gentle but gripping storyline. Enjoyed the Shetland scenes and families. Lots of threads spun together seamlessly.
