    From Ann Cleeves, winner of the CWA Diamond Dagger Award, comes Cold Earth.
    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. Perez soon becomes obsessed with tracing her identity and realizes he must find out who she was and how she died.
    Cold Earth is the seventh book in the beloved Shetland series, which is now a major success for the BBC.
    Ann Cleeves is reader-in-residence for the Harrowgate Crime Writing Festival and was twice shortlisted for the CWA Dagger Award before winning the first Duncan Lawrie Dagger Award for Raven Black. In the autumn of 2016, Ann celebrated the publication of 30 books in 30 years. Her latest book is Cold Earth, a Shetland mystery featuring Jimmy Perez; her most recent Vera Stanhope novel is The Moth Catcher.
