A group of old university friends leave the bright lights of London and travel to Unst, Shetland's most northerly island, to celebrate the marriage of one of their friends to a Shetlander. But late on the night of the wedding party, one of them, Eleanor, disappears - apparently into thin air. It's mid-summer, a time of light nights and unexpected mists. The following day, Eleanor's friend Polly receives an email. It appears to be a suicide note, saying she'll never be found alive. And then Eleanor's body is discovered, lying in a small loch close to the cliff edge.

Detectives Jimmy Perez and Willow Reeves are dispatched to Unst to investigate. Before she went missing, Eleanor claimed to have seen the ghost of a local child who drowned in the 1920s.

Found this in a charity shop and picked it up as I had watched one or two episodes of the BBC drama but got really annoyed as all the main characters seemed to be proper Glaswegians and not Shetlanders. This book is the 6th in the series so a lot has happened to the characters in previous books that I was unaware of so I will have to look the earlier ones up too. The story is really well written - the weather and the fog seems to be omnipresent and it has a real ''Shetland feel '' to it. I did like all the main characters and will definitely be reading more.

Caught this book at the meetup in Frankfurt. I like the Shetland-tv-series and so it might be a good idea to improve my english skills by reading this book :-)
