Product description


"Order, read, and pass it on! Well known for novels and television dramas, Scottish author May ("Backlight Blue"; "Chinese Whispers") has written a mesmerizing new trilogy opener. May brings the story to a breathtaking conclusion with an astonishing twist at the end. Compare to Simon Beckett's "Written in Bone" for locale and Tana French for tone. --"Library Journal" (Starred Review)"The Isle of Lewis, one of Scotland's starkly beautiful Outer Hebrides islands, is as much a character in this novel as its hardscrabble residents. Edinburgh detective and native islander Fin Macleod returns to his boyhood home and its haunting memories when a murder on the island seems to mirror a similar one in the country's capital. His investigation will expose ugly island secrets, painful childhood memories and shocking revelations about a woman he once loved. The novel's moody atmosphere is as much about the gray skies and the inhabitants' cultural and religious idiosyncrasies as it is about the motives of a killer. The bleak "Blackhouse" shines with intrigue and superb plotting." --"USA Today
