Wild Fire

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?

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.

*"Intricately plotted and elegantly written, this installment is billed as Perez's final case. Series fans will be sorry to see the last of him."

Publishers' Weekly

"Fans disappointed to see the last of Cleeves' hero will be happy to know that the final case in this complex, character-driven series [...] is a tour de force.."

Kirkus Reviews

"Deft plotting, strong characters and the masterful evocation of a rugged landscape make this a splendid ending to an excellent series."

Laura Wilson, The Guardian
