RED BONES by Ann Cleeves is the 3rd title in her SHETLAND series, featuring Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez. One of Perez's assistants, Sandy Wilson, has an expanded role in this investigation. Sandy's family is at the center of the 2 murders on his home island of Whalsay and his many personal insights into the family and knowledge of the community aids Perez in solving the `case'.
Perez must peel away the many layers of secrets held by the closely-knit families on Whalsay, just as the archeologists dig away at the layers of dirt and stone at their `dig' at Mima Wilson's croft.
It is a story of secrets, family and community relationships, parental expectations and promises.
It is a story of quiet and patient observation and understanding of human nature - at its best and worst.
We see people stripped down to their basic humanity - kindness, love, revelry; also pride, greed, jealousy, and ultimately mistreatment of others and violence.
The ending is quick and satisfying. The sense of place and character development is spectacular. I must admit that I am `hooked' on this series and the Shetland Islands.
I give this book and series a sincere and heartfelt recommendation.

I'm a big fan of Ann Cleeves and have enjoyed everything she writes. The Shetland series is good but have not been as endeared to Inspector Perez as I have been with Inspector Stanhope in her Vera series. However, we get a better feel for Jimmy Perez' character in this book, which I truly enjoyed. I often figure out 'who done it' before the end of my read, but must admit this one took me by surprise. Loved it and on my way to the next Shetland murder mystery!

Wish there were more than 7 in this series. But then I don't have enough book shelf for the many I would want her to write. Intelligently and intricately written - some may think it slow, but I like the unforlding which gives times to savor character and plot.

I enjoyed the first Shetland book a lot and thought I'd like this one too. It took the author the entire book to confirm the first murder. That seemed too slow for my taste. I do like the policemen and will probably get around to the next one, too.

I am now a reader of all things Ann Cleeves.

Red Bones carries us on to another case in the Shetlands to which Jimmy Perez applies his persistent calm to get it sorted out.

We see good character development with Perez's somewhat inexperienced and immature colleague, Sandy Wilson, who plays a significant role in the story and refreshingly experiences some growth in maturity as well.

After Sandy's grandmother and lifetime resident of the islands, and a young archaeologist student, an outsider, are found dead within days of one another, Jimmy Perez and Sandy Wilson suspect they might be connected.

The islanders are a tightly knit group and they may be withholding information that would help solve not only these cases, but perhaps an older one as well.

The book meanders through the daily lives of the different characters and one is always aware of the steadily congealing plot, confident in the knowledge that Perez will solve the case.

Cleeves sets the backdrop of the Shetland Islands in such a realistic way, you can almost feel the moistness of the fog, the mist on your face, hear the lament of the distant foghorn, and experience the brace of the northern breeze that can slice right through a person. I had never had the desire to venture farther North than Inverness, but her descriptions of the starkly barren but beautiful scenery as she describes the different Shetland villages in her book, have convinced me I need to experience this place.

I highly recommend this author and this book and I look forward, albeit impatiently, to her next one.

Every page of Ann Cleeves' Shetland Island thrillers is a vision. I feel as if I am there, on Fair Isle or Lerwick, in the home of Mima, or Jackie, or looking at the landscape as Sandy Wilson walks to Setter. All of this is what makes me feel I've been there, when I haven't, and makes me want to visit and see the crofts and the sheep--and the people. More perfect than all of this is the mystery that unfolds as Jimmy Perez, in his inimitable style, peels away the layers of the characters, the suspects, the families, His curiosity is the reader's. Again and again I believe I know who the murderer is. Ann Cleeves is clever and expert at casting doubts and weaving a tale that points to first one and then another. In the end, I am always wrong. That doesn't reflect badly on me! Ann Cleeves is a master, and I recommend ALL of this series. I am finishing the fourth, and last, but I am looking forward to other books she has written.

This is the third in the series that I have read, but it unfortunately will be the last. I love the complex characters and am tempted to read the fourth in the series just to see how Cleeves shapes their growth, but the ending always come as somewhat of a surprise. I love mysteries, but I need to see clues along the way and follow the story line through its twists and turns until the end, but these mysteries seem to be suddenly solved with only the main character in the know.
Great follow up to White Nights, with a good mystery and hopeful ending. Love the Shetland Island setting and characters, and watching them grow and develop. Ann Cleeves writes a well constructed mystery, and keeps you guessing until close to the end.
