Yeside recommends: This is Part 1 of a gripping detective “Lewis” trilogy set in the Outer Hebrides which features so strongly in this novel that they almost become a character in their own right. In fact, the characters are the most compelling part of this novel that the solving of the crime seems secondary. May’s writing is so fluid that it pulls you into the story. It’s not a rapid read like a traditional thriller, though you want to continue reading because the unravelling of the detective’s revisiting ghosts from the past is so compelling.
