Publisher's Summary

An archaeologist studying on a site at Whalsay discovers a set of human remains. Is it an ancient find - or a more contemporary mystery? Then an elderly woman is shot in a tragic accident. Shetland detective Jimmy Perez is called in by her grandson - his own colleague, Sandy Wilson. Mima Wilson was a recluse. She had her land, her pride and her family. As Jimmy looks to the islanders for answers, he finds instead two families whose feud has lasted generations. Surrounded by people he doesn't know, Jimmy finds himself out of his depth.
Then there's another death and Jimmy must dig up old secrets to stop a new killer from striking again...

Good story

I enjoyed the story of this book, but found the narrators voice incredibly irritating. No hint of a Shetland accent to be found. If like me you want to hear the story in the accent of the area it's written in, then I'd give this a miss.
