WINNER OF THE CRIME WRITERS' ASSOCIATION DIAMOND DAGGER AWARD 2017

NOW A MAJOR BBC DRAMA


"Chilling ... enough to freeze the blood." New York Times

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.

Raven Black is a haunting, beautifully crafted crime story, and establishes Ann Cleeves as a major talent in psychological crime writing.

Love the TV series… the books are better

Loved the book & it kept me guessing. Descriptions of scenery made me feel the cold, isolation and open spaces. Characters are described in a way that had me relating them in ways to the scenery… wild & bleak like the land but with so much more hidden under the surface waiting to be exposed like the characters.
