Product description

Review

'a hymn in praise of the beauties of the islands and miseries of their weather' Scotsman. (Scotsman)

'a page-turning thriller' Norwich Evening News. (Norwich Evening News)

well worth reading' Sunday Times. (Sunday Times)

''In mood and texture, Peter May's novels, set on the Isle of Lewis, are essentially Nordic, and he bears comparison with some of the best writers from those cold desolate climes' The Times. (The Times)

His landscape is authentic and, while what happens in the dark tales are things one hopes would be foreign, they become all too believable as they stream from his sharp pen' Northern Times. (Northern Times)

''The Lewis Man, Peter May's sequel to last year's bestseller The Blackhouse is even more impressive than its predecessor' Big Issue Scotland. (Big Issue Scotland)

Not only was this book a really good thriller, it also shed light on the trials of living with dementia and the effects on both the sufferer and their family' Stirling Observer. (Stirling Observer)

'An exciting, page-turning thriller' Press Association.

'May skilfully combines pathos and the themes of identity, lost love and family ties to create an exciting, page turning thriller' Sheffield Star.

(Sheffield Star)

'as good as its superb predecessor, The Blackhouse ... this is not only a good mystery, but also a moving and evocative portrayal of a place where the unforgiving weather is matched only by the church's harsh patronage' Guardian. (Guardian)

'as gripping as its predecessor ... well written, rendering almost visible the Hebridean landscapes, seascapes and customs' Literary Review. (Literary Review)

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.
