The good news: here's the next in Diamond Dagger Award Winner Cleeves's beloved "Shetland Island" series starring Inspector Jimmy Perez. The bad news: it's the finale. Designer Helena Fleming and her architect husband have remade their lives by moving with their children to a distant corner of the Shetlands. Then Helena starts receiving spooky hanged-man-and-gallows drawings.

To paraphrase T.S. Eliot: to make an end is to make a beginning. Jimmy Perez, Cleeves's brooding Shetland Islands police officer, returns for his final compelling case (after Cold Earth). A family new to the islands has been subjected to poison-pen letters. The son then finds a young woman—a nanny to another family in the area—hanged in their old barn. The death is deemed suspicious, and DCI Willow Reeves, Perez's boss, is dispatched from Inverness to lead the investigation. Soon another body is recovered. Life is complicated for Perez, who blames himself for the murder of his beloved girlfriend and now has growing admiration for Reeves, who's just arrived with shocking news for him. As the dense Shetland fog shrouds the islands, the pair work to unravel decades of secrets and cruelty to catch a murderer. VERDICT Throughout the "Shetland Island" series, Cleeves lovingly depicts the Scottish island life, and this volume is no exception. Fans may be saddened but certainly not disappointed by this final installment. [See Prepub Alert, 3/12/18.]—Penelope J.M. Klein, Fayetteville, NY

In CWA Diamond Dagger–winner Cleeves's excellent eighth Shetland Island mystery (after 2017's Cold Earth), designer Helena Fleming and her family have settled in a remote community on Shetland, where she has become a local celebrity by using "Shetland wool to create garments that were shown at London Fashion Week." One day, Helena is dismayed to find a crude drawing tucked inside a copy of the Shetland Times depicting a gallows. Soon afterward, her 11-year-old son discovers the body of their neighbor's young nanny, Emma Shearer, hanging from a beam in their byre. Det. Insp. Jimmy Perez, who initially takes charge of what could be a murder case, calls in a crime team from Inverness, which includes his occasional lover, Willow Reeves, who brings emotional complications to the investigation. A number of local residents appear to have had some sort of an ax to grind with Emma, and several suspects emerge. Intricately plotted and elegantly written, this installment is billed as Perez's final case. Series fans will be sorry to see the last of him. Agent: Sarah Menguc, Sarah Menguc Literary Agent (U.K.).
