Cold Earth: A Shetland Island Mystery

This event is now sold out.

No one embodies the British mystery writer more than Ann Cleeves, who in October claimed The Crime Writers' Association Diamond Dagger, the highest honor in British crime writing. She is all things British: clever, smart, and witty, and wonderful with her fans.

We’re planning on hosting her at the Spinster Sisters in Santa Rosa for an exclusive dinner limited to 65 people. We’ll be shutting down the restaurant for a Friday night, April 21 for the occasion. To salivate over the menu, click here.

Ann is the author of the British crime series – the Shetland Island series, and the Vera Stanhope series. Both are now British TV Shows that just started airing in American markets this past year, via PBS, Acorn TV, and Netflix.

The new book, Cold Earth: A Shetland Island Mystery, goes on sale April 18 and as part of this event, you will be one of the first in the country to hold the book in your hands.

In the dark days of a Shetland winter, torrential rain triggers a landslide that crosses the main road and sweeps down to the sea. As 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. He soon becomes obsessed with tracing her identity. Perez knows he must find out who she was and how she died. Mark Lawson chose Cold Earth as one of his best crime books of the year, and called Ann "the best living evoker of landscape". Read what Ann told The Sydney Morning Herald about Cold Earth.
