“When Shetland Island police detective Jimmy Perez investigates the murder of an outsider, he knows that even though the handful of residents have known each other all their lives they still have their secrets. Two more murders follow, and it's up to Perez to identify the killer. Cleeves is a master at creating memorable characters in this unforgettable series.”
— Karen Spengler, I Love A Mystery, Mission, KS


The electrifying follow-up to the Dagger Award-winning Raven Black.

In this second thriller of the highly acclaimed Shetland Island series featuring Inspector Jimmy Perez, the launch of an exhibition at The Herring House art gallery is disturbed by a stranger who bursts into tears, then claims not to remember who he is or where he comes from. The next day he's found dead. Set in midsummer, the book captures the unsettling nature of a landscape where the sun never quite sets and where people are not as they first seem.
