The story is about a black princess who has a black father who realizes he is lonely when he sees other couples so happy. His daughter, Raven Black, suggests he search for a wife. Perhaps they could have a ball and eligible ladies could be presented for him to choose. The ball is over and everyone has gone when the trumpeters announce the arrival of Carlotta, a white, blond, beautiful woman. She was accompanied by Elizabeth, her duenna; Joseph, who does anything she wants; and a very rotund fortune-teller called Madam Karma. When Madam Karma tells her that the kings daughter will inherit everything, the fun begins. Carlotta is as evil as she is beautiful.

Introducing Inspector Jimmy Perez A remote community with a killer in their midst . . . On New Year’s Day Shetland lies buried beneath a deep layer of snow. Trudging home, Fran Hunter's eye is drawn to a vivid splash of colour on the white ground, ravens circling above. It is the strangled body of her teenage neighbour. As Fran opens her mouth to scream, the ravens continue their deadly dance . . . The body is found close to the home of a lonely outcast and local suspicion falls firmly on him. But when Inspector Jimmy Perez insists on broadening the search for suspects, a veil of distrust and fear is thrown over the entire community. As the case develops Perez finds himself peering deeper into the past of the Shetland Islands than anyone wants to go. Raven Black is the first book in Ann Cleeves' bestselling Shetland series – a major BBC One drama, starring Douglas Henshall.

A mass of vacant, smiling faces stare blankly from the confines of their missing posters. The memory of their existence lost in time. One innocent overlaps another, curling at their corners, tattering at their edges as they fade slowly in the harsh light of day. Perhaps a reflection of their final moments. Has no one noticed these lost souls are all women? Some, have only begun to make that change. Where have they all gone? There they remain, pinned to the local bulletin board in the only Diner for miles. The town of Collins, sits only a few miles away from its location. No one would suspect that it had any part to play in their demise. It has been a ghost town for a decade now. It sits crumbling away under the assault of mother nature. People seem to have forgotten its very existence and that its population of over a thousand, suddenly disappeared overnight. Now, Collins has lured another woman into its clutches. Sara King is only one, in a series of uncountable victims to cross over its dreary threshold. However...things are different this time. She will be the first one they regret taking but she will not be their last victim.

CWA Diamond Dagger winner Ann Cleeves’s Shetland Island series has long been beloved both by fans who have been intrigued by Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez from the very first page, and recent converts drawn in by the brilliant BBC series Shetland. Set in the most northerly community in the UK, the islands have a stark beauty that provides the backdrop for Jimmy’s quietly intense cases. Here together for the first time in a fantastic low-priced eBook bundle are the first four Shetland Island mysteries: Raven Black: Winner of the coveted Duncan Lawrie Dagger Award, Raven Black begins on New Year’s Eve with lonely outcast Magnus Tait. When the body of a murdered girl is discovered, suspicion falls on Magnus, and Inspector Jimmy Perez enters an investigative maze that leads deeper into the past of the Shetland Islands than anyone wants to go. White Nights: The launch of an exhibition at The Herring House art gallery is disturbed by a stranger who bursts into tears then claims not to remember who he is or where he comes from. The next day he’s found dead, and Jimmy must follow the winding trail the stranger has left behind to its conclusion. Red Bones: When a young archaeologist discovers a set of human remains, the locals are intrigued. Is it an ancient find—or a more contemporary mystery? Then an elderly woman is fatally shot, and Jimmy Perez is called in. In Red Bones, a claustrophobic mist swirls around the Shetland Islands, and Inspector Perez finds himself totally in the dark. Blue Lightning: Detective Inspector Jimmy Perez brings his fiancée home to Fair Isle, a birder’s paradise, but when a woman’s body is discovered at the island’s bird observatory, the investigation is hampered by a raging storm that renders the island totally isolated. Jimmy has to find clues the old-fashioned way, and he has to do it quickly. There’s a killer on the island just waiting for the chance to strike again.

or anyone who has ever suffered dysfunction and pain at the hands of another; for anyone who has been robbed of their childhood at the hands of their family of origin - this book is a must read. Follow the author as she takes you along on her journey from the deepest darkness to discovering the light - where she finally breaks the cycle of dysfunction. In her described "Burnt Tongue" style of poetry, she tells her story; powerful and raw, as inspiring as it is disturbing. Includes several of Sandra Clarke's ethereal, photo-manipulative style illustrations.
