Raven Black is the first in the Shetland Scottish detective series. I watched it after finishing the first two seasons of the Shetland TV show, so it’s hard to rate the book. The images of the show are so imprinted on my mind that the writing could have been dull as dishwater and I’d still have a strong sense of place. It scratched the itch after I devoured the Rebus book and wasn’t yet ready to move back to the nonfiction stuff I usually read in the mornings. I’d read more in the series. ‘Nuff said.
Back to the real purpose of this book thread: some nonfiction to get me thinking.
