Synopses & Reviews
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 hes 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.
“Gripping from start to finish.”
“Intricate and engrossing . . . offers readers the pleasures of the traditional locked room/isolated island mystery.”
- The Washington Post Book World
“A most satisfying mystery. Jimmy Perez is a fine creation.”
- Peter Robinson, author of Friend of the Devil
