Thin Air is the sixth book in Ann Cleeves' Shetland series - now a major BBC One drama starring Douglas Henshall as detective Jimmy Perez, Shetland. A group of old university friends leave the bright lights of London and travel to Unst, Shetland's most northerly island, to celebrate the marriage of one of their friends to a Shetlander. But late on the night of the wedding party, one of them, Eleanor, disappears - apparently into thin air.

Thin Air (Shetland Series 6) Synopsis

It's mid-summer, a time of light nights and unexpected mists. The following day, Eleanor's friend Polly receives an email. It appears to be a suicide note, saying she'll never be found alive. And then Eleanor's body is discovered, lying in a small loch close to the cliff edge. Detectives Jimmy Perez and Willow Reeves are dispatched to Unst to investigate. Before she went missing, Eleanor claimed to have seen the ghost of a local child who drowned in the 1920s. Her interest in the ghost had seemed unhealthy - obsessive, even - to her friends: an indication of a troubled mind. But Jimmy and Willow are convinced that there is more to Eleanor's death than they first thought. Is there a secret that lies behind the myth? One so shocking that someone would kill - many years later - to protect? Ann Cleeves' striking Shetland novel explores the tensions between tradition and modernity that lie deep at the heart of a community, and how events from the past can have devastating effects on the present. Also available in the Shetland series are Raven Black, White Nights, Red Bones, Blue Lightning and Dead Water.

The Good Book Guide Review

Ann Cleeves’ books and two television series have made her among the highest profile British crime writers. Winning the prestigious Crime Writer’s Association Dagger for best crime novel meant she received the kudos she clearly deserved – and the remarkable Raven Black with the TV series Vera consolidated that success. A well-known aficionado of Scandinavian crime fiction, she transmits that Nordic feeling into the exemplary work, as is evident in Thin Air.

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 ...
