I've enjoyed later books in Cleeves' "Shetland" series, so was glad to find this fair-condition softcover of the first book at a local thrift shop.

This volume introduces us to police inspector Jimmy Perez and his life on the remote Shetland Islands. We also meet divorcee Fran Hunter and her young daughter - and it's Fran herself who finds the murder victim, the body beset by ravens... Suspicion falls on a local loner who's been seen talking to the victim and other young women, but is that too pat a solution?

And then Fran's daughter goes missing...

Dandy mystery, with an intriguing setting and characters that I want to know more about.

[There's a TV series based on the books, and a short TV Tropes page on the series.]
