The million-selling author of the Lewis trilogy brings murder back to the Outer Hebrides
About the Author
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. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BCC, he quit journalism and during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland's most successful television dramatists. He created three prime-time drama series, presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland as script editor and producer, and worked on more than 1,000 episodes of ratings-topping drama before deciding to leave television to return to his first love, writing novels.
He has won several literature awards in France, received the USA's Barry Award for The Blackhouse, the first in his internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy; and in 2014 was awarded the ITV Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Best Read of the Year award for Entry Island. Peter now lives in South-West France with his wife, writer Janice Hally.

A good read.
It was enjoyable and unpredictable but did seem slow to unveil. It was half way through before it became apparent what the mystery was about. Then the story woke up and became more engaging. I imagine there would be readers who might have given up before then.
Good to see the inclusion of topical science.
I have not included details or spoilers about this story in this review.
This book had me curious from start to finish. The interweaving of three lives, which initially seem unconnected, fascinated me. The author held my attention with every line written. The complexities of why someone has lost their memory and the impact that has on everything around them, without becoming too drawn into the angst of memory loss worked well.
The story has the same pace as The Black House series, not high octane, but a softer pace through modern issues and complex people.
As with other books by Peter May I enjoyed his description of the islands, the views and the ever changing weather. His descriptions of the beauty and the bleakness, draws me in every time.
