Ann Cleeves - Red Bones

This is the third book in what is to be a quartet. They are set in the Shetland Isles and are British crime writing at its best. Ann is particularly good at atmospheres, that feeling of whilst living in a wild open space, there is the claustrophobia of knowing that everyone is aware of your business. However secrets do lurk! In Red Bones we have an archaeological dig revealing buried bones and some are more recent than expected! Skeletons rattling from the Second World War.

I particularly like the way we have come to know her detective so intimately over the novels and look forward to seeing how the life of Jimmy Perez continues.
