Product Description

Product Description

Discover the Mysteries of Shetland with the first three novels in Ann Cleeves' Shetland series, now a BBC1 drama staring Douglas Henshall. Starting with the CWA awarding winning Raven Black, this special ebook also contains the second and third novels in the Shetland series, White Nights and Red Bones.

Raven Black: It is a cold January morning and Shetland lies buried beneath a deep layer of snow. Trudging home, Fran Hunter’s eye is drawn to a vivid splash of colour on the white ground, ravens circling above. It is the strangled body of her teenage neighbour Catherine Ross. As Fran opens her mouth to scream, the ravens continue their deadly dance . . . The locals on the quiet island stubbornly focus their gaze on one man – loner and simpleton Magnus Tait. But when police insist on opening out the investigation a veil of suspicion and fear is thrown over the entire community. For the first time in years, Catherine’s neighbours nervously lock their doors, whilst a killer lives on in their midst.

'Ann Cleeves intriguing mystery is tangentially energised by the "simmer dim", a midsummer craziness attributed to the midnight sun", Financial Times.
"In true Christie fashion, Cleeves once more pulls the wool over our eyes with cunning and conviction," Colin Dexter.
"Remote and enclosed, Shetland is an excellent background for crime fiction...A carefully constructed, atmospheric and interesting mystery", Literary Review.
"Ann Cleeves’ fellow crime fiction practitioners (from Colin Dexter to Peter Robinson) have been lining up to sing her praises, and it’s unlikely that there will be any blip in that chorus of praise on the evidence of Red Bones, which is quite as assured and entertaining as its predecessors," Barry Forshaw.
"This is wonderful...Part of the wonder of this book is the domestic detail that becomes iconic within the novel," Radio Four's Front Row.

5.0 out of 5 stars I want more! 1 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Downloaded all 3 and read in quick succession. Very fast moving storyline and really interesting characters. However, Shetland seems a little like Midsomer- after so many murders it's surprising there's anyone left alive! I do like the character of Perez, though and look forward to him finally achieving happiness

The characters are all well drawn and totally believable. The plots were all well thought out and plausible. I am a big fan of the crime novel genre and have read a large selection of this type of book and I would have to say that Ann Cleeves Shetland novels are up there with the best.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK but depressing like the weather 10 July 2014
By DH0582

I had not seen the TV series, which a friend had recommended, so got it on Kindle. Whilst it was ok, I found the characters quite depressing, just like the weather in the Isles.
