    One thought on “Red Bones”

    1. Number three in this excellent series set in the Shetland Islands. I am probably repeating myself from reviews of the earlier books, but I really enjoy the author's descriptions of the scenery and the lifestyle. The characters grow up, marry and grow old on the islands, some of them never venturing far away at all, even for a holiday! Nevertheless, even in this quiet backwater place people are still murdered and detective Jimmy Perez is called to solve the crimes. I had already seen the TV episo [...]

    2. 2017 UPDATE: The TV series based on the idea of the books is on Netflix in the US. Aired four years ago, and you can tell:PEREZ: For more holiday lets? Christ Duncan you're turning into Shetland's answer to Donald Trump.DUNCAN: *laughs*That line spoken in Scotland today would lead to blows and severed friendships.

    3. I love this series - cosy murder mystery set in Shetland Isles - will certainly be working my way through these!

    4. If I wasn't so intrigued with the climate and culture of the Shetlands, I would have stopped reading this book after the first few chapters. She does do a good job describing the unique characteristics of this incredibly interesting locale, but beyond that, what a lousy "thriller." The two main cops are riddled with self-doubt and self-deprecation, but not in a cool, Harry Hole kind of way, in the "gosh, I hope I get the girl!" and "how can I get my dad to like me?" way. Sure, part of the human [...]

    5. Το τρίτο βιβλίο της σειράς "Σέτλαντ Άιλαντ" της Ann Cleeves, με τίτλο "Κόκκινα οστά", έφτασε στη χώρα μας, για μία ακόμη φορά με την υπογραφή των εκδόσεων Κλειδάριθμος. Ο Τζίμι Πέρεζ επιστρέφει για ν' αναλάβει άλλη μια μυστηριώδη υπόθεση, καταφέρνοντας και πάλι να μας παρασύρει στα [...]

    6. Detective Jimmy Perez is called in to investigate after an elderly woman is shot dead in the island community of Whalsay. Then a young archeologist working an ancient site discovers human remains causing much speculation locally. When a suspicious death occurs the Procurator Fiscal is prepared to call it suicide but Jimmy is wary and continues to investigate. Two deaths in a small rural community is extremely suspect. Could there be a murderer on the lose in Whalsay? Who will be next? Jimmy is c [...]

    7. mp3 workadayRed Bones [2009] , 11 hours 24 mins, blurb:An island shrouded in mist and a community with secrets buried in the past . . .When a young archaeologist studying on a site at Whalsay discovers a set of human remains, the island settlers are intrigued. Is it an ancient find – or a more contemporary mystery? Then an elderly woman is shot in a tragic accident in the middle of the night.

    8. This is the third book in the "Shetland Quartet" featuring Detective Jimmy Perez, who despite having a Spanish surname, is a "multigenerational" Shetland islander. This book features Sandy, a police officer, who is thought to be rather stupid and only capable of doing plodding work that can be directed by his superiors. Bones are found at an archaeological dig. The question is how old are they? Then Sandy's grandmother is found dead, the suspect is quickly found although it seems to be an accide [...]

    9. It took a long time (more than 50 pages) to warm up to this book. It starts really, really slowly. And it takes awhile to get used to the Scottish slang and phrases. It was interesting in that I learned a lot about the Shetland Islands and the bleak existence that islanders share. And the mystery was ok - more like an Agatha Christie novel than anything else. It was frustrating because the police seemed so inept. Maybe we watch too much CSI and maybe small villages in Scotland don't have access [...]

    10. Interesting setting on the Shetland islands, an archeological dig, past scandals and mysterious disappearances, an unexpected death--all very promising, but this book is like an oatmeal cookie with too few raisins. There was so much of the detectives' internal maunderings about their life issues that it distracted from the suspense.

    11. The pace was a bit slow at the start & some of the police actions are a bit odd, but this book has some beautiful descriptions of the Shetlands & it builds to a genuinely surprising ending.

    12. Reasonably gripping read and respectable member of Ms. Cleeves excellent Shetland series. Couldn't help thinking that this needed some tighter editing. Much rambling about various characters' childhood experiences in the name of building "atmosphere" could have been safely discarded by a more brutal editor. Still, a decent read on a rainy afternoon or a flight.

    13. Συμπαθητική πλοκή θα έλεγα, αν και το ενδιαφέρον ξεκίνησε αφού διάβασα αρκετές σελίδες. Δεν ξέρω τι μου φταίει και δεν ενθουσιάστηκα. Οι χαρακτήρες μου φάνηκαν λίγοι τα γεγονότα γινόνταν κάπως βιαστηκά Σίγουρα ήθελα περισσότερο σασπένς, γιατί η ιστορία από μόνη της ήταν πο [...]

    14. I continue to like this series set in the Shetland Islands, this one revolving around an archaeological dig of what is thought to be a merchant's house from the 1500's. If it turns out to be true, it will be quite a discovery and will likely lead to the reconstruction of the home and a visitor's center focusing on the history of the island of Walsey and its possible involvement in the Hanseatic League. enpedia/wiki/Hanseat The dig and thinking about the Hanseatic League and Shetland's possible i [...]

    15. Book 3. in the "Shetlands Quartet" and another one I loved. This one takes us to Sandy's homeland on Whalsay, renowned for its friendly Islanders, and while Sandy is home on a visit, his grandmother is shot dead one dark night outside her farmhouse and he finds her body. His cousin, Ronald, who is out shooting rabbits, is thought to have shot her accidentally There is an archaeological dig taking place on Mima's land (Sandy's grandmother) and the PhD student in charge of the dig, Hattie James, h [...]

    16. I enjoyed this book as much as I did Raven Black. I thought White Nights was the best of them so far, the formula feels a little worn after 3 in a row and I felt the action dragged in some places. Like the first book, it didn't give me as much of a sense of the Shetlands as I would have liked. But I enjoy Perez, I liked the deeper look into Sandy's life. I'm looking forward to the fourth book, I missed Fran's presence in this one.

    17. The first book in this series grabbed me from page one and I couldn't put it down. Second one not so much, but I still enjoyed it. I made it to chapter 11 in book 3 and decided it's time to take the book back to the library. Too much jumping around and there's minimal development of the new characters or the existing ones in my opinion. I wanted to like this series, but it just didn't happen.

    18. Archeology students on a remote island uncover bones, which leads to two deaths and a mystery for Jimmy Perez to solve. This time his police sidekick Sandy and his family are at the heart of the drama. Another slow burning read set in the Shetland islands. Not one of my favourites of the series. Enjoyable though.

    19. Decentish. I thought at first I had found a new favourite mystery writer, but though I thoroughly enjoyed the brooding atmosphere, the local colour, and the characters, the denouement was rather disappointing. But I shall reserve judgement until I've read a few more of her books.

    21. This one was a little slower for me than books one and two but maybe because my ebook loan expire halfway through, and I had to wait on hold you finish. Love the setting of this series and the characterization. And I never guess or remember the end (even when I've aleady seen the TV series episode based on the book). I will say, though, that I don't find them to be what I think of as thriller pacing. That's not a criticism so much as an observation, but maybe worth noting.

    22. Ann Cleeves is a master at tone, atmosphere, and setting—whether she’s describing a run down croft nestled into a hillside or a posh home in a well appointed home in London. The murders her main character, Jimmy Perez, solves are never simple or obvious. Her characters are nuanced and flawed, but you grow fond of them, nonetheless. I’m reading them out of order. Try not to do that.

    23. A very good police procedural novel set in the Shetland Isle. This one sees Insp. Perez investigating the violent death's of his DC Sandy Wilson's grandmother Mima and a young archaeologist Hattie James. The story has intrigue from the past, unexplained wealth and the very close nature of the small community on Shetlands neighbouring island of Whalsay.Well written and a good well constructed plot.

    24. Leggermente sotto tono rispetto ai due precedenti, più lento, meno giallo e più romanzo. Incentrato prevalentemente sulle varie figure di madre, sul rapporto madri-figli, sui rapporti fra madri. Unica costante: nemmeno stavolta ho indovinato chi fosse il colpevole.

    25. My 3rd Shetland mystery. I'm in love with the Shetland Isles now. After the last book, I couldn't wait to get back. This one didn't have much going on in the first couple hundred pages. People got murdered alright, but it kind of poked along. Fran was away, and there was less of Jimmy. Mima was an interesting character. And while it would make sense for the men to import new blood, the women don't really seem cut out for it. Sandy was more featured in this one. And towards the end it got excitin [...]

    26. Another great mystery!I found the Shetland Bus fascinating. I need to do some reading about this particular history of WW2 Shetland and Norway.

    27. Love reading about the Shetland Islands, the description of the environment makes me want to travel there and the mystery is a bonus

    28. There were a lot of familial relationships to keep track of, but the mystery was good. I totally didn't foresee the killer, yet the person made total sense. An old woman is killed on a remote Scottish island where an archaeological dig is taking place outside her home. Two families live nearby: one rich, one barely getting by. Finally, there's a book with a WWII subplot that's not a cliche! Bechdel test: Pass. Grade: B+

    29. An intricately interwoven plot that is undeniably brilliant, atmospheric and beautifully crafted. This stunning crime novel by highly acclaimed, bestselling author of Dead Water and Raven Black, Ann Cleeves brings a new exciting tale to the forefront. ‘Shetland’ is now a major BBC television drama adaptation. This profoundly gripping, absorbing tale is one that had me sat on the edge of my seat throughout as I was unable to put this book down for even a moment. Shrouded in mystery, deception [...]
