Publisher's Summary

Ann Cleeves is back with the sixth book in her Shetland series featuring Inspector Jimmy Perez, whom listeners will remember from Raven Black, White Nights, Red Bones, Blue Lightning, and Dead Water.
A group of old university friends leave the bright lights of London and travel to Shetland to celebrate the marriage of one of their friends. But one of them, Eleanor, disappears - apparently into thin air. It's midsummer, a time of light nights and unexpected mists. 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 investigate. Before she went missing, Eleanor claimed to have seen the ghost of a local child who drowned in the 1920s. Her interest in the ghost had seemed unhealthy - obsessive, even - to her friends: an indication of a troubled mind. But Jimmy and Willow are convinced that there is more to Eleanor's death than they first thought. Is there a secret that lies behind the myth? One so shocking that someone would kill - many years later - to protect it?
Ann Cleeves' striking new novel is a quintessential whodunit with surprises at every turn.

Best in the series.

What did you love best about Thin Air?

The descriptions of life on the Shetland Islands and the wonderful voice of the narrator.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was engaging, but to be honest, I listened more for the back stories than the plot.

Which character – as performed by Kenny Blyth – was your favorite?

Probably Jimmy Perez, but I also found Willow very interesting.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, absolutely. It ended too quickly for me, again, in part because of the great narrator.

Any additional comments?

I can't praise Kenny Blyth enough!

Great Listening

This story kept you guessing to the end. The description of both the island and people were really good but not overdone so as to loose the thread of the story. A good murder mystery.
