Mystery in Series

Finished May 22
Red Bones by Ann Cleeves
I've been enjoying this series featuring the Shetland Islands detective Jimmy Perez and this latest one is set around an archaeological dig on the island of Whalsay and involves the family of Jimmy's colleague Sandy Wilson. It starts with the death of an elderly woman, seemingly of an accidental gunshot. Even though accidental death seems the obvious answer, Jimmy is not entirely convinced, and when a second death occurs, he begins to wonder what else is going on.
Jimmy gives Sandy more responsibility than he has before here, and Sandy is determined not to let him down. Sandy also has family responsibilities which he feels he must honour and the two come together in the end.
While I enjoyed this mystery in the series, I have enjoyed some of the earlier ones more.
