Win a copy of Wild Fire
Wild Fire by Ann Cleeves, one of Britain’s most successful crime writers, is the eighth and final book in the Shetland series. Cleeves’ bestselling books have sold over 5 million copies worldwide and are loved in print and on screen: both the Vera Stanhope and Shetland series are major TV adaptations starring Brenda Blethyn on ITV, and Douglas Henshall on BBC One respectively.
Famous for her evocative landscape writing, the Shetland series was launched to critical acclaim in 2006 when the first book in the series, Raven Black, won the prestigious Book of the Year at the annual Crime Writer’s Association Daggers awards. Since then it has gone on to inspire five series of BAFTA winning television, win fans across the world, and increase tourism in the Scottish archipelago.
Wild Fire is an intense and emotionally complex novel highlighting the dichotomy between the claustrophobia of living in a close-knit community and needing to bury secrets and lies. Envy, motherhood and family dynamics are powerful themes and Cleeves’ plot is cleverly woven tight making it a tricky case for both lead character DI Jimmy Perez and the reader to solve.
