Auch Ehepartner sind darunter und aus einigen ehemaligen Schülern waren zwischendurch auch mal Ehepartner geworden. But with the latest installments, this Vera still seems someone similar to the tv series one and also separate at times. She has twice been short listed for a CWA Dagger Award - once for her short story The Plater, and the following year for the Dagger in the Library award. She is apparently so wide she fills entire hallways and blocks out the entire light in a room if she’s standing near the light source. Ann worked as a probation officer, bird observatory cook, and auxiliary coastguard before she started writing.

Relationships made 50 years ago have come and gone, like the tide, but the nucleus of their friendship remains the same.

Now a second member of this small group, journalist Rick Keisail has hung himself in his room on the reunion weekend.

The plot thickens nicely when closer examination reveals that the apparent suicide is murder and a few more suspects on the mainland are thrown into the mix. Vera is a star of a protagonist, overweight, with a shambolic appearance that has her giving off the vibes of a bag lady, and here she is mistaken as a cleaner, not that it bothers her in the slightest. Judith Marshall, a 'hippy new-age' personality who led the first group in bonding activities, is now retired and heavily involved in the church.Ann's Shetland series bring us DI Jimmy Perez, investigating in the mysterious, dark, and beautiful Shetland Islands. They think the murder may be due to Rick's present transgressions or some rivalry among the group, but Vera is insistent that it is somehow connected to the long-ago death of Isobel.
