This #BookFaceFriday is on the rocks!
Ah dinnae ken why you’re not reading this #BookFaceFriday! “Dead Water: A Shetland Mystery” by Ann Cleeves (Minotaur Books, 2014) is part of an excellent detective series set in the Shetland Islands of Scotland. Dead Water is book five in her Shetland Island Mystery series and has been turned into a popular BBC series. We have several of Cleeves’ titles on Nebraska OverDrive Libraries, including all 8 books in the Shetland Island Mystery series!
“Cleeves has an unusually deft hand with characters; not one of them seems purely plot functional, and Perez’s character keeps deepening with each book. The rough islands cresting the Atlantic fit the bleakness of the murders depicted here. This series is one of two that Cleeves has going; the other stars Northumberland detective Vera Stanhope and is a hit BBC series.”– Booklist (starred review)
This week’s bookface was shot “on location” by Nebraska Library Commission’s Lisa Kelly on her vacation in Scotland!
