Reviews

Praise for Cold Earth

"The stark Shetland landscape provides an atmospheric backdrop for Cleeves's complex, relatable characters, especially Perez, a kind man dealing with his own tragic past."--Publishers Weekly

"The Shetland Islands provide a stunningly atmospheric setting for the complicated hero [Perez]'s latest procedural, a challenge he meets with determination and more than a little angst."--Kirkus Reviews

"Plenty of suspects on a remote Scottish island mixed with the high quality of Cleeves's prose make this a solidly plotted whodunit for procedural and traditional mystery readers."--Library Journal

Praise for the Shetland Island series:

"Ann Cleeves confirms that she is the best living evoker of landscape with Cold Earth."--The Guardian, Best Crime Books and Thrillers of 2016

"Nothing short of riveting." --Louise Penny

"In true Christie fashion, Cleeves once more pulls the wool over our eyes with cunning and conviction." --Colin Dexter, author of the Inspector Morse series

"Intricate and engrossing...offers readers the pleasures of the traditional locked room/isolated island mystery." --The Washington Post Book World

"A key feature of the best crime writing is a vivid sense of place, and Cleeves gives us Shetland in all its rugged, rain-swept splendour, an island where if everyone doesn't know everyone else, it's only a matter of time."--Irish Times

"This sixth in the series of Jimmy Perez Shetland mysteries is every bit as good as we have come to expect from Cleeves." --Reviewing The Evidence

"Cleeves excels in capturing Shetland's stark, harsh beauty: the windswept land, the gray churning ocean, and hovering clouds. The often gloomy landscape is the perfect setting for tragic death by murder. Always eerie and haunting (thanks to the ghost of Peerie Lizzie) and certainly mysterious, Thin Air is perhaps the best and most compelling in the series so far." --Curled Up
