Publisher Description

Ann Cleeves returns to her critically acclaimed Shetland Island series, now a BBC television show available on streaming.

Dead Water is the next stunning mystery featuring Inspector Jimmy Perez, who readers will remember from Raven Black, White Nights, Red Bones, and Blue Lightning. When the body of a journalist is found, Detective Inspector Willow Reeves is drafted from outside to head up the investigation. Inspector Jimmy Perez has been out of the loop, but his local knowledge is needed in this case, and he decides to help Willow.

The dead journalist had left the islands years before to pursue his writing career. In his wake, he left a scandal involving a young girl. When Willow and Jimmy dig deeper, they realize that the journalist was chasing a story that many Shetlanders didn't want to come to the surface.

In Dead Water, a triumphant continuation to her Shetland series, Ann Cleeves cements her place as one of Britain's most successful crime writers.

Lanikai Dreamer ,

Story moved but fog ever present

Should the story line have been clearer? Hard to keep secondary characters straight.

Dead Water

As always, an excellent story with complex characters and plot. So much fun to read…

RedDog1 ,

Weak

Very disappointing. Have read several others in her Shetland series. This had a very strained, illogical conclusion of the mystery. Characters as vibrant and clearly drawn as ever, scenes in the islands quite descriptive as always, but the story was just....weak. Not up to her own standards.
