Publisher Comments:

From acclaimed author and dramatist Peter May comes the Barry award-winning The Blackhouse, the first book in the Lewis Trilogy--a riveting mystery series set on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland's Outer Hebrides.

When a grisly murder occurs on the Isle of Lewis that bears similarities to a brutal killing on the mainland, Edinburgh detective and native islander Fin Macleod is dispatched to the Outer Hebrides to investigate, embarking at the same time on a voyage into his own troubled past.

As Fin reconnects with the people and places of his tortured childhood, the desolate but beautiful island and its ancient customs once again begin to assert their grip on his psyche. Every step toward solving the case brings Fin closer to a dangerous confrontation with the dark events of the past that shaped--and nearly destroyed--his life.

Vivid, gorgeous descriptions of the Isle of Lewis. Wonderful sense of place. Interesting complicated relationships. The story moves flawlessly between current day and his memories of his youth on Lewis. His memories are told in first person and present day in the third person. Almost like two stories weaving in and out of each other and coming together in one superb, climatic ending I was not expecting!

This is a book that will stay with you and might possibly be my favorite book read this year! I can't wait to get onto the next one in the series!

You just have to go to the author's website click on The Lewis Trilogy to the left and check out all the extra's on this series available there!
