Red Bones (Shetland, 3)
About this deal
These things don’t come along too often for any location - any place - so most people realise it’s fundamentally a good thing and shows off Shetland all over the world.
Ann Cleeves: Red Bones, the third book in the Shetland Quartet
First Ronald Clouston, mistaking old Mima for a rabbit in the foggy Shetland night, accidentally shoots her. They were the only residents, there was no mains electricity or water and access to the mainland was at low tide across the shore. Since the death of his fiancée, Inspector Jimmy Perez has been out of the loop, but his interest in this new case is stirred and he decides to help the inquiry.
When a second, seemingly 'unsuspicious' death occurs, Jimmy realises there must be more to these tragedies than meets the eye and further investigation is required.
