The latest in the Shetland Island series, this one sees Jimmy Perez coming back to Fair Isles for a visit, and taking his fiancee, Fran, with him. His parents throw him an engagement party at the end of which, a woman, a famous twitcher at the research center, is found stabbed to death in the bird house. The only suspects are the visitors staying at the research centre, which includes her teenage stepdaughter. Jimmy has to try and solve this murder on his own because the bad weather is preventing the boat and plane from their shuttle runs.

But when another woman is found viciously stabbed to death as well, he has no choice but to call in his team for assistance.

It's a story about secrets. Everyone has secrets, it seems, even his own father. And while Jimmy is on the verge of uncovering the identity of the murderer, a tragedy occurs.

I've been a fan of the Shetland series since I started with [Raven Black] and this is as good as the first.
