EVENT OVERVIEW: Ann Cleeves, Internationally Acclaimed Mystery Author, will present her New Hardcover Cold Earth: A Shetland Mystery.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Ann Cleeves writes two series of traditional mysteries, both of which have been turned into hit TV series airing on PBS. The Vera Stanhope books have been made into the hit series “VERA” starring Brenda Blethyn. The Shetland novels feature Inspector Jimmy Perez and are being filmed by the BBC and titled “Shetland.” Raven Black, the first Shetland novel, won the CWA Gold Dagger. Thin Air, the sixth Shetland novel, was shortlisted for Scottish Crime Novel of the Year in 2015 and Ann was presented the Lee Child Dead Good Readers' Award for Best Loner or Detective for Vera the same year. Ann Cleeves lives in England.
ABOUT THE NEW BOOK: In the dark days of a Shetland winter, torrential rain triggers a landslide that crosses the main road and sweeps down to the sea. As the burial of his old friend Magnus Tait, Jimmy Perez watches the flood of mud and water smash through a house in its path. Everyone thinks the home is uninhabited, but in the wreckage he finds the body of a dark-haired woman wearing a red silk dress. He soon becomes obsessed with tracing her identity. Perez knows he must find out who she was and how she died.
