PETER MAY: THE MAN WHO BROUGHT MURDER TO THE OUTER HEBRIDES


A brutal killing takes place on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland: a land of harsh beauty and inhabitants of deep-rooted faith.

A MURDER

Detective Inspector Fin Macleod is sent from Edinburgh to investigate. For Lewis-born Macleod, the case represents a journey both home and into his past.

A SECRET

Something lurks within the close-knit island community. Something sinister.

A TRAP

As Fin investigates, old skeletons begin to surface, and soon he, the hunter, becomes the hunted.

Love this. Having grown up on the west coast of Lewis, it's lovely reading about so many places I know and love. May describes the places and people well and the story is gripping.
