      A journalist gets murdered and detective Inspector Willow Reeves gets recruited from outside to lead the investigation since inspector Jimmy Perez haven't been himself since his loss in the last book. But it doesn't take a long time before Jimmy joins the investigationAnn Cleeves Shetland Island series has oddly become one of my favorite series. Oddly because the first three books were quite ordinary crime/mystery books. But the last book was really good and I have been looking forward to readin [...]

      3 1/2 starsThe cliff-hanger ending of Cleeves's previous entry in this series, Blue Lightning, propelled me immediately into this book. After two books set in the outer Shetland Islands of Whalesy and Fair Isle, we're back on the main island for another story where murders pile up. Familiar characters populate Dead Water; and we meet Willow Reeves, the new inspector from Inverness who replaces Roy Taylor. I love this series and I "liked" this book. The story line was interesting and kept me turn [...]

    6. Joyce Lagow on said:

      The Shetland Quartet was originally that--four books set in the Shetland Islands with Detective Jimmy Perez as a complex, totally believable and empathetic protagonist. Using the Shetlands brilliantly as a backdrop, the books were excellent, and the quartet ended logically.Now, three years later, Cleeves has chosen to resume the narrative, always an awkward maneuver in such cases. Cleeves does it better than most, but the narrative is rough in places as she tries to meld the old with the new. Th [...]

      I love this understated but compelling detective series set in the Shetland Islands.Another interesting mystery involving old and new characters - highly recommended.

    8. Minty McBunny on said:

      I absolutely loved this book, to me it is the best of the series. I am so grateful Cleeves chose to write a 5th book, it is such a strong novel and really moves Jimmy Perez forward after the tragic ending of book 4.

    9. Ms.pegasus on said:

      Detective Jimmy Perez returns in this fifth Shetland Island book by Ann Cleeves. A rich history of family relationships, the mosaic of insular communities, and deeply ingrained local traditions make this an outstanding series. The islands lie to the northeast of Scotland and the name deceptively suggests cultural homogeneity. Cleeves' book, with its shifting locales, counters that impression. On the North Sea side lies the remote island of Fetlar, accessible from the main island by the Yell ferr [...]

    10. Khanh (the meanie) on said:

      Ann Cleeves can't write a bad book, as far as I'm concerned, and this latest in her Shetland series is no exception.Detective Jimmy Perez is recovering from (view spoiler)[his fiancée's death (hide spoiler)] in the previous book. He spends his day moping about, taking care of the precocious Cassie, and generally doing nothing useful at the police station. Even his peers and fellow police officers at the station are sick of his moodiness.A body is inevitably found, a new detective is introduced, [...]

    12. CLM on said:

      Detective Jimmy Perez is understandably still depressed from the unfortunate results of his last investigation so when the body of a disliked journalist is discovered, his superiors assign a detective to come to the Shetland Islands to supervise the proceedings. Although Jimmy has been struggling to anything other than care for his (more or less) stepdaughter Cassie, he becomes interested in the mystery despite himself and joins the offcomer, Willow Reeves, and the amiable but not very bright Sa [...]

      I really loved this book. The plot was gripping and the characters beautifully drawn. I have just downloaded the first three books in this series. excellent.

    14. Pmalcpoet Pat Malcolm on said:

      This is a tough one. I was looking forward to reading this book, if only to see what direction the author would take now that my beloved Fran has been killed off. So, she did that. Life goes on in the Shetland Isles. But this time the mystery, the actual reason for the book, seemed to miss something for me. There were plenty of red herrings, and some of the familiar richness of local culture, but little actual texture in the story line, which seemed more confused than confusing. The outcome seem [...]

    15. Christine on said:

      The latest in the Shetland series sees Jimmy Perez on sick leave and at a low ebb. Willow is in charge of the investigation that starts with a journalist being murdered, and being found by the Fiscal. This is the final book in the series and follows on nicely from the previous book. It was a pleasure to read. For me, this series is a 'must read' now. I just love the sense of community and small town feel of these books. I've never visited Scotland in my life, so it's opened my eyes to that possi [...]

    16. Tanja Berg on said:

      Ann Cleeves does it again - presents a bleak and enticing Shetland, facinating characters, mystifying whodunnit and keeps the pace and the plot right until the end. Then it somehow disappoints and the murderer doesn't quite seem belieavable. I enjoyed most of this though, and I have the sixth book in the series, which I will read in short order.

    17. Chris on said:

      I just found this okay. It's not bad; it's not outstanding. It was good enough. There seems to be a good sense of place. Strange how I'm suppose to think Perez is such a good day, though Cassie is more talked about than present. Just saying.

    18. Gisela Hafezparast on said:

      Interesting story line and a interesting new character in the shape of a new detective. One of the best in a series of books which for me lives on the stories it tells of Shetland Islands history, people and culture.

    19. Azita Rassi on said:

      With Dead Water I have come back to the Shetland series, from which I had deviated by reading the first Vera book. It is interesting to me that although both series are written by the same author in the same genre, my reaction to them is so different. I continue to enjoy Jimmy Perez’s mysteries, while I found Vera quite distasteful. Maybe if I had seen the TV adaptation, I would have felt differently. Anyway, I am very happy that Jimmy didn’t turn into a hard man as was warned at the end of [...]

    20. Monika on said:

      Det var ett tag sedan jag besökte Shetlandsöarna och Jimmy Perez. Efter Blå gryning så trodde jag verkligen att det var slut med den här serien. Faktum var att jag nog kände att jag inte ville läsa en författare som kunde få för sig att avsluta en serie så där. Det har tagit mig drygt fem år att komma över Nej, skojar bara. Det har helt enkelt inte blivit så att jag har fortsatt, förrän nu. Läs mer på min blogg

    21. Marita on said:

      I have just reread the first four books prior to reading no. 5, and even though I knew what to expect, I was once again shocked by the ending of book 4. What could follow this? I assumed it was THE END. However, Ann Cleeves once again kept me glued to the book, and instead of endings there could well be beginnings. I look forward to reading her next book.

    22. Diane Challenor on said:

      Good story, good plot line, interesting characters and geographic place. Top notch narration. The author, Ann Cleeves never disappoints. I'll eventually read everything she's written. We absolutely loved the TV series Vera which was based on her Vera Stanhope mysteries. Hours of pleasure.

    23. Rob Kitchin on said:

      Dead Water is the fifth book in the Jimmy Perez Shetland series. After the death of Perez’s partner in the last outing, the detective is at a low ebb, bringing up Fran’s seven year old daughter and thinking of quitting the police. When a journalist is murdered, Detective Inspector Willow Reeves is sent from Aberdeen to lead the investigation. Willow doesn’t seem like the usual kind of detective, seemingly a little laid-back and unconcerned about appearance, but she’s ambitious and disarm [...]

    24. Mark Robison on said:

      My least favorite of the first five Shetland books. Part of the problem is probably that the book had to recover from the tragedy that struck in the previous book, but for me, the biggest issues were that there were too many possible suspects — and their tentacled relationships for and against two renewable energy projects were confusing. When one of the crimes was done simply because the killer was “on a roll,” it’s hard to care. But, it gets rated a notch higher because a great new cha [...]

    25. Jo on said:

      I don't really read lot of mysteries as I find the pacing slow, I prefer thrillers. However Ann Cleaves, Shetland series is an exception. Jimmy Perez is a no nonsense detective who is in charge of policing all the crime that happens on the Shetland islands. Now you'd think there wouldn't be any crime in such a small and desolate place, however its a bit like Midsomer from Midsomer murders its a treacherous and dangerous place to live, as death seems to stalk its inhabitants. Great series.

    26. Lesa on said:

      Ann Cleeves' Shetland Island series was originally intended to be four books, and, in fact, it's called The Shetland Quartet. However, she must have found it as hard to leave behind Inspector Jimmy Perez and the Shetlands as her readers did. Fortunately, for us, she brought both back in Dead Water.Jimmy Perez is still in mourning and on leave, so when Rhona Laing found a body in the yoal, the boat she and other women used for rowing, Jimmy wasn't interested in the case. As Procurator Fiscal, it [...]

    27. Larraine on said:

      Ann Cleeves is one of the more intelligent writers of crime fiction. Her writing is thoughtful and clean and very gripping. This latest installment of our Shetland series finds detective Jimmy Perez struggling with depression after the love of his life was murdered. He is acting as the father of his dead fiance's child even though her real father lives nearby. Full time parenthood is not something that Duncan can deal with. When a journalist who had returned back to Shetland in pursuit of a "big [...]

      Another excellent book in the Shetland series. I really like the way Ann Cleeves writes. I would put her in the same class as Ruth Rendell. Although NO ONE is as good as our Ruth :) I love the character of Jimmy Perez. He's not your usual kind of cop, and he's a complex person. He's also, I feel, a genuinely good person.I actually treated myself to the Shetland DVDs a while ago, but have not yet been able to bring myself to watch them; for although I actually really like Douglas Henshall as an a [...]

      3 Stars.Once again Ms Cleeves has written an intriguing and entertaining Shetland mystery. On this occasion a journalist is murdered early in the story and Jimmy Perez finds solace in returning to crime solving. We are introduced to a new lead investigator, Willow Reeves, whose competitive nature leads to some conflict with Perez. Once again I found Sandy Wilson a nice supporting character, refreshing in his honesty and humility.I found this my least favourite novel of the Shetland series. Cleev [...]
