More About the Author

"Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth" New York Times

Peter May is the multi award-winning author of:

- the award-winning Lewis Trilogy set in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland;
- the China Thrillers, featuring Beijing detective Li Yan and American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell;
- the Enzo Files, featuring Scottish forensic scientist Enzo MacLeod, which is set in France;
and Entry Island (January 2014, Quercus UK) the latest of several standalone books.

He has also had a successful career as a television writer, creator, and producer.

One of Scotland's most prolific television dramatists, he garnered more than 1000 credits in 15 years as scriptwriter and script editor on prime-time British television drama. He is the creator of three major television drama series and presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland before quitting television to concentrate on his first love, writing novels.

Born and raised in Scotland he lives in France.

After being turned down by all the major UK publishers, the first of the The Lewis Trilogy - The Blackhouse - was published in France as L'Ile des Chasseurs d'Oiseaux where it was hailed as "a masterpiece" by the French national newspaper L'Humanité. His novels have a large following in France. The trilogy has won several French literature awards, including one of the world's largest adjudicated readers awards, the Prix Cezam.

The Blackhouse was published in English by the award-winning Quercus (a relatively young publishing house which did not exist when the book was first presented to British publishers). It went on to become an international best seller, and was shortlisted for both Barry Award and Macavity Award when it was published in the USA.

The Blackhouse won the US Barry Award for Best Mystery Novel at Bouchercon in Albany NY, in 2013.

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful... I have a confession to make and if there was such a thing as a PMA Group I would stand up and say, "I am Annik and I am a Peter May Addict." The New York Times reviewer said "Peter May is an author I'd follow to the ends of the earth" and I would agree with him/her wholeheartedly.

I was originally captivated and entranced by the Lewis Trilogy which I happened upon by chance and thought could not be surpassed. I waited with bated breath for "The Chessmen". My husband and I had been due to go on holiday to the Outer Hebrides a couple of years ago when the Australian great friend who was to accompany us died ten weeks after diagnosis from a very rare cancer on the day we would have taken the ferry. My husband and I couldn't bear to go through with the trip but the Outer Hebrides and all the research I'd done about the place still fascinated me. I thought Peter May was a master writer and couldn't imagine how he could repeat the fabulous trilogy.

Then after a significant time, I decided to read the Enzo series, having been put off by his name and thinking they would be about Italy – not France. My husband and I now live in France for six months of the year and have had our house in the Creuse, on the brink of the Massif Central, for 20 years. I devoured the five Enzo books in a fortnight and appreciated all the nuances about French life that Peter May wove into his series. Enzo is a fascinating character, his personal life is rivetting and the cold crime puzzles he tackles are intriguing; I am bereft that apparently there is only going to be one more title in the series. (What happened to the seventh mystery?

I bought this wrongly thinking that because it was published this year, it was a new book in the Enzo series. However, I find that it is number 3 and having read the others..........I know, I know - my own fault for not checking properly! I find Enzo's unfailing ability to bed anyone incredibly irritating (and the pony tail - ugh) but somehow Peter May's story telling ability keeps me turning the pages. I do hope that there are more in the series to finish the solving of the 'cold cases' simply because the premise and most of the writing is fascinating. However I also hope that Enzo grows up (at last - he is over 50 after all) because of changes in his personal life ( I don't want to do a spoiler for those who are working their way through the books more sensibly than me) and comes to some kind of resolution although with the crime solving. Iti is interesting how it is possible to find the hero so deeply irritating (aging hippy type and so unable to resist temptation at any time!) and yet still 'root for him'. Sigh

Admittedly it took me a while to warm to Enzo, a little too chauvinistic on first sight, but there's more to him than that and the French setting (for all the books so far) is enormously appealing. His family, two daughters and the younger daughter's boyfriend, coupled with the slightly mysterious journalist whose book on unsolvable crimes is providing Enzo with all his cases, spread the interest appeal beyond Enzo himself.
This is a really cleverly worked out plot, full of suspense, scares and twists, which seems to use a variation on the disappearance of Madeleine McCann as a starting point and where the final denouement raises new concerns for Enzo. If you like detective/thrillers, this is well worth a try.

I'm not even finished reading it but I just love the way May weaves such intricate plots and keeps the reader intrigued from page 1 onwards, especially his use of tension, or light-hearted relief or jaw dropping cliff hangers at every chapter.
I started with May's Lewis Trilogy and knowing the Scottish Western Isles as well as some Gaidhlig, I could clearly picture every location and understand his lapses into the local language. I was hooked. I started the Enzo novels after spending 2 weeks in a gite in the Touraine in France and find them so intriguing and full of familiar images. Maybe being a Scot who can make himself understood in both French and Spanish also adds something to my enjoyment of May's novels and characters. I love the way he throws in the odd word in French, or in Blacklight Blue a little Spanish too, and not needing to read on a few more lines to obtain the translation.
Must get back to the book now to read the final few chapters!!

My previous awareness of Peter May as a crime novelist rested solely on having read 'The Blackhouse' (the first of his trilogy set on the island of Lewis and Harris) and then run aground on its successor, 'The Lewis Man' (though that was more a consequence of alarming personal resonances within the plot
than any reflection on its standing as a novel).

He had, however, written a clutch of other novels including the series known as 'The China Thriilers' and a sequence featuring retired forensic expert Enzo Macleod. This particular book is the third of the Enzo Macleod novels, and it soon became evident that it followed on fairly closely from its predecessors, though this didn't pose any problem.

As the novel opens, we met Enzo Macleod on his way to an appointment with an oncological expert, from whom he receives a particularly gave prognosis. Almost immediately after this blow he learns that someone has attempted to murder his daughter. As if his week is not going poorly enough already, he soon finds himself arrested as prime suspect in the murder of a female acquaintance.

This may all sound rather implausible, but May carries it all off superbly. The novel fairly fizzes along, and the reader's attention never wanes. He doesn't expend much energy on developing his characters' personalities, but they are all perfectly credible.

I shall definitely be going back to read the earlier episodes in the sequence.
