Wild Fire is the eighth, and final book, in Ann Cleeves' bestselling Shetland series - a major BBC One drama starring Douglas Henshall as Jimmy Perez.

Shetland: Welcoming. Wild. Remote.

Drawn in by the reputation of the islands, an English family move to the area, eager to give their autistic son a better life.

But when a young nanny's body is found hanging in the barn of their home, rumours of her affair with the husband begin to spread like wild fire.

With suspicion raining down on the family, DI Jimmy Perez is called in to investigate, knowing that it will mean the return to the islands of his on-off lover and boss Willow Reeves, who will run the case.

Perez is facing the most disturbing investigation of his career. Is he ready for what is to come?

She is a member of 'Murder Squad', working with other British northern writers to promote crime fiction.

Cleverly plotted, with a brilliant evocation of the Scots islands * Sunday Mirror * Intricately plotted and elegantly written -- <i>Publishers Weekly </i>(starred review) Ann's characterization is worthy of the best writers in the field * Daily Express * The best living evoker of landscape -- Mark Lawson * Guardian * Jimmy Perez is a fine creation -- Peter Robinson Cleeves is quietly carving out a reputation as the new Queen of Crime * Sunday Mirror * A fantastic end to one of the key detective series of the past decade -- Ragnar Johansson, author of <i>Snowblind</i> Even by her standards this is an outstanding thriller * Sunday Express * Farewell Jimmy Perez! I'm a big fan of Cleeves' complex crime novels and this is no exception . . . Atmospheric, compelling and ultimately satisfying * Woman & Home *
