LoveReading View on White Nights

Setting a detective novel in the Shetland Isles is a stroke of genius in itself as a close knit community such as that is the last place you would expect murder to take place. Adding to the chilling news that there has been a murder, the time of year means that nightfall never comes, hence the title of the novel and the remoteness and strangeness of the light adds to the eeriness. Perez is a great detective, intuitive and charming and slightly vulnerable.

White Nights Synopsis

Following on from the award-winning Raven Black, White Nights is the second title in Ann Cleeves' popular Shetland crime series featuring Detective Jimmy Perez. When Shetland detective Jimmy Perez finds a body in a hut used by fishermen it seems to be a straightforward case of suicide. He recognizes the victim - a stranger with amnesia who had disrupted a local party the night before his death. Yet this is no desperate act of anguish, but the work of a cold and calculating killer. As Perez investigates, he finds himself mired in the hidden secrets of the small Biddista community. Then another body is found. Perez knows he must break the cycle before another death occurs. But this is a crazy time of year when night blurs into day and nothing is quite as it seems ...

About Ann Cleeves

A letter from Ann Cleeves to our readers..... Dear Lovereading members, I first came to Shetland when I was nineteen.  I'd dropped out of university and was offered, quite by chance, the job of assistant cook in the bird observatory on Fair Isle, the most southerly island of the archipelago.  It's thirteen hours by ferry from Aberdeen to Shetland mainland and then another three hours in a horrible little boat to Fair Isle.  I thought I'd come to the end of the world.  But I arrived in spring when the lowlands were covered in flowers and ...
