Ann Cleeves @ The Poisoned Pen

Ann Cleeves just appeared at The Poisoned Pen while on book tour for her seventh Shetland Island mystery, Cold Earth.

Cold Earth

Here’s the summary of the book.

In the dark days of a Shetland winter, torrential rain triggers a landslide that crosses the main road and sweeps down to the sea.

At the burial of his old friend Magnus Tait, Jimmy Perez watches the flood of mud and water smash through a house in its path. Everyone thinks the home is uninhabited, but in the wreckage he finds the body of a dark-haired woman wearing a red silk dress. He soon becomes obsessed with tracing her identity. Perez knows he must find out who she was and how she died.


The audience watched TV video excerpts from Shetland, based on Cleeves’ series. And, Barbara Peters, owner of The Poisoned Pen Bookstore, interviewed Ann Cleeves.
