Now a Major BBC DramaWinner of the Crime Writers' Association Diamond Dagger Award 2017Thin Air is the sixth book in Ann Cleeves' Shetland series featuring Detective Jimmy Perez.A group of old university friends leave the bright lights of London and travel to Unst, Shetland's most northerly island, to celebrate the marriage of one of their friends to a Shetlander. But late on the night of the wedding party, one of them, Eleanor, disappears - apparently into thin air. It's mid-summer, a time of light nights and unexpected mists. The following day, Eleanor's friend Polly receives an email. It appears to be a suicide note, saying she'll never be found alive. And then Eleanor's body is discovered, lying in a small loch close to the cliff edge.Detectives Jimmy Perez and Willow Reeves are dispatched to Unst to investigate. Before she went missing, Eleanor claimed to have seen the ghost of a local child who drowned in the 1920s. Her interest in the ghost had seemed unhealthy - obsessive, even - to her friends: an indication of a troubled mind. But Jimmy and Willow are convinced that there is more to Eleanor's death than they first thought.Is there a secret that lies behind the myth? One so shocking that someone would kill - many years later - to protect?About the AuthorAnn Cleeves is the author behind ITV's Vera and BBC One's Shetland.

I had no idea she'd researched the budget so thoroughly—she pulled that report out of thin air. I didn't see Mike leave the party, he just disappeared into thin air.
If someone or something disappears into thin air, they disappear completely.
And the way the author, Lisa Gray, pulls it off is exceptional. I enjoyed the clever twists and turns that led to an incredibly satisfying end.
