The third book in Ann Cleeves' Shetland series featuring Detective Jimmy Perez.
Sometimes the dead won't stay buried...
When an elderly woman is shot in a tragic accident, Shetland detective Jimmy Perez is called to investigate.
The sparse landscape and the emptiness of the sea have bred a fierce and secretive people. As Jimmy looks to the islanders for answers, he finds instead two feuding families whose envy, greed and bitterness have lasted generations.
Then there's another death and, as the spring weather shrouds the island in claustrophobic mists, Jimmy must dig up old secrets to stop a new killer from striking again ...
