Red Bones by Ann Cleeves
Detective Jimmy Perez is called in to investigate after an elderly woman is shot dead in the island community of Whalsay. Then a young archeologist working an ancient site discovers human remains causing much speculation locally. When a suspicious death occurs the Procurator Fiscal is prepared to call it suicide but Jimmy is wary and continues to investigate. Two deaths in a small rural community is extremely suspect. Could there be a murderer on the lose in Whalsay? Who will be next? Jimmy is convinced someone in this small secretive community knows more than they are telling.
I really love this series, there's just something about it, it's like going home, or putting on a comfy pair of slippers. I just love Ann Cleeves writing, I mean this woman can write. The setting, Shetland, is so interesting and mysterious, and the characters in these Shetland books - they give me the creeps! Everyone has secrets they want to keep hidden. Everyone has a past.
This is my third book i've read now in Ann Cleeves Shetland Series, featuring policeman Jimmy Perez. I got this e-book from the library and the minute I finished it I downloaded the next in the series Blue Lightening.
There is nothing like Jimmy Perez and Shetland on a winters evening beside the fire. Ann Cleeves is my comfort food!
