Staff picks for June

Amee: Raven Black by Ann Cleeves (mystery)

I began watching a series on Brit Box called Shetland. The Shetland series is based on books written by Ann Cleeves. Raven Black is the first. It is a bit different from the television series, however, I enjoyed it just as much. While Wornstaff does not own the books or DVDs of the series, we can borrow through the COOL consortium for you. The books are also available digitally through the Libby app.
