The murder of teenager Catherine Ross sends shockwaves through a small Shetland community, and most of the fingers of blame point to loner and simpleton Magnus Tait. But Catherine's vicious and sudden demise has thrown a veil of suspicion over everyone who knew her, and one local detective is keeping all options open.
This is the first book in the Shetland series by Ann Cleeves. Teenager Catherine Ross is found dead on Shetland. The most obvious suspect is Magnus Tait, a loner with possible learning difficulties. Magnus is already suspected of being involved in the disappearance of a local child some years previously. Ann Cleeves depicts the atmosphere of life on Shetland, where everyone knows everyone else’s business , very well. She also introduces the reader to Shetland’s history. and traditions . I particularly enjoyed the way in which Ann Cleeves chronicles the relationships between the various characters and challenges the assumptions we make about others.
