I fell across Peter May with a 65p offer on the first of his Lewis novels and was immediately dragged in to the culture and close community of the island. Here we have a book in a similar sort of vein with a slightly broader canvas for him to paint his story on; France. Knowing some of Enzo's haunts heightens the enjoyment and I must admit to following in his footsteps with the help of Google streets on at least a couple of occasions to help get my bearings. As with his other books, there's always some little known (well, to me at least) piece of cultural or social history which threads its way through the tail. The characters are finely drawn, the places, as mentioned, are well described and precise. An intriguing plot line with several twists makes for a very enjoyable story.
