The mystery group on Zoom. We are reading Raven Black by Ann Cleeves. This mystery series is also the basis of the BBC show, Shetland featuring her character, Jimmy Perez. Raven Black is available on audiobook through our Hoopla subscription.
Set in the remote Scottish Shetland Islands, Cleeves’s taut, atmospheric thriller, the first in a new series, will keep readers guessing until the last page. Det. Insp. Jimmy Perez investigates the murder of teenage Catherine Ross, found strangled on a snowy hillside shortly after New Year’s. While the police and citizens alike are quick to lay the blame on local eccentric Magnus Tait, who was not only the last person to see Catherine alive but also the prime suspect in the disappearance eight years earlier of another girl, Perez has his doubts. … When the shocking identity of the murderer is revealed, readers will be as chilled as the harsh winds that batter the isolated islands.
