Description


Cold Earth is the seventh book in Ann Cleeves’ beloved Shetland series, which is now a major success for the BBC, and available to stream in the US.

From Ann Cleeves, winner of the Crime Writers Association's Diamond Dagger Award, comes Cold Earth.


In the dark days of a Shetland winter, torrential rain triggers a landslide that crosses the main road and sweeps down to the sea.

At the burial of his old friend Magnus Tait, Jimmy Perez watches the flood of mud and water smash through a house in its path. Everyone thinks the home is uninhabited, but in the wreckage he finds the body of a dark-haired woman wearing a red silk dress. Perez soon becomes obsessed with tracing her identity and realizes he must find out who she was and how she died.

Cold Earth is the seventh book in the beloved Shetland series, which is now a major success for the BBC.

Praise For…


"Narrator Kenny Blyth transports listeners to the Shetland Islands with his delightful and easily understood Scots brogue...Blyth's talent with acting and accents makes for an engaging, well-paced listen." -AudioFile Magazine

Praise for the Shetland Island series:

"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

"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

Praise for the Vera Stanhope series:

“Top-notch police procedural.” —Publishers Weekly (starred)

“Cleeves offers up evocative settings and flawed characters with depth, making her mysteries wonderfully addictive. Her latest is no exception.” —Library Journal (starred)

"I didn't expect the final reveal. Those cleverly disguised dead ends had me completely fooled, which is just the way I like it. But I was sorry to say goodbye."—Crime Fiction Lover

"A nice mixture, in the British tradition, of social comedy and detective work. More Vera, please." —Booklist (starred review)

"Ann Cleeves is a skillful technician, keeping our interest alive and building slowly up to the denouement. Her easy use of language and clever story construction make her one of the best natural writers of detective fiction." —Sunday Express (UK)

If you're a fan of Frances Fyfield, Minette Walters, or Val McDermid, get to know Cleeves. —Globe and Mail (Canada)

"It's easy to admire Vera's brainpower. . . her adventures have been a hit on British television, and readers devoted to Cleeves' tales of Jimmy Perez will want to give Vera a try." —Kirkus Reviews

"A nice mixture, in the British tradition, of social comedy and detective work. More Vera, please." —Booklist (starred review)
