Dead Water by Ann Cleeves

Dead Water by Ann Cleeves
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Ann Cleeves returns to her critically acclaimed Shetland Island series with this 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.


A journalist gets murdered and Detective Inspector Willow Reeves gets recruited from outside to lead the investigation since inspector Jimmy Perez haven't been himself since his loss in the last book. But it doesn't take a long time before Jimmy joins the investigation...

Ann Cleeves Shetland Island series has oddly become one of my favorite series. Oddly because the first three books were quite ordinary crime/mystery books. But the last book was really good and I have been looking forward to reading this book for some time. And I wasn't disappointed, a good mystery story, Jimmy, and Sandy are back and a new character, Willow Reeves that I came to like quite good. Now I just want to read the next book...
