A group of old university friends leave the bright lights of London and travel to Shetland to celebrate the marriage of one of their friends. But one of them, Eleanor, disappears—apparently into thin air. It’s mid-summer, a time of light nights and unexpected mists. 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 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?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Cleeves has an unusually deft hand with characters; not one of them seems purely plot functional, and Perez’s character keeps deepening with each book. The rough islands cresting the Atlantic fit the bleakness of the murders depicted here.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “In Cleeves’ exquisitely plotted sixth Shetland mystery…deftly explores the complicated personal relationships of the principal characters in this atmospheric installment.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “A well-developed police procedural.”

    Library Journal

  • “As a group of old friends travel from London to the Shetland Island for a wedding, Kenny Blyth’s narration offers convincing mannerisms and personalities for each…Blyth’s portrayals of detectives Perez and Reeves are spot-on…A wedding, a ghost, a death, credible suspects, and Kenny Blyth’s performance make the sixth book in Cleeves’ excellent series a whole lot of fun.”
