When a woman's death finds Inspector Jimmy Perez out of his depth, he must dig up long-buried secrets to uncover the truth in Red Bones, the third Shetland mystery from Ann Cleeves.
Now a major BBC One drama, Shetland, starring Douglas Henshall.

After a young archaeologist uncovers a set of human remains, the island settlers are intrigued. Is it an ancient find – or a more contemporary mystery?
Then, in the middle of the night, an elderly woman is shot dead. It appears to be a tragic accident, but 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. To solve the crime – and prevent further bloodshed – Perez must ask questions that some on the island do not want to be asked . . .
Continue the atmospheric crime series with Blue Lightning.
