The final book in the crime trilogy set on the Isle of Lewis, which began with "The Blackhouse" and continued with "The Lewis Man". Fin Macleod investigates illegal game-hunting taking place on the island, and reunites with an old friend from his teens, poacher Whistler Macaskill. But when this reunion takes a sinister turn and Fin puts together the fractured pieces of the past, he realises that revealing the truth could destroy the future.
Peter May was born and raised in Scotland. He was an award-winning journalist at the age of twenty-one and a published novelist at twenty-six. He is the million-selling author of the Lewis trilogy, the Enzo Files and the China thrillers; and of the Sunday Times bestselling standalone novels Entry Island, Runaway and Coffin Road. Peter now lives in South-West france with his wife, writer Janice Hally.
May's novels are strong on place and the wounds left by old relationships * Sunday Times * One of the best regarded crime series of recent years -- Boyd Tonkin, on the Lewis trilogy * Independent * Instantly struck by the beauty of the descriptions of the wild island terrain as well as by the roundedness and complexity of the characterisations * The Times * Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth * New York Times * Western France - now May's own stamping ground - is as much a character in the book as the Hebrides were in his formidable Isle of Lewis sequence * Guardian * Wonderfully compelling -- Kate Mosse From the first page I knew I was in safe hands. I knew I could trust this writer -- Sophie Hannah He is a terrific writer doing something different -- Mark Billingham The Lewis Man shone like a bright star out of this year's book lists. Lyrical, empathetic and moving -- Alex Gray A wonderfully complex book -- Peter James, on Entry Island A rip-roaring thriller . . . thoroughly enjoyable * Mail on Sunday *
