(The Chess Men out in US February, 2015)
As a mystery reader, I am always looking for new authors, and series, and Peter May, a bestselling author in Great Britain, is a great find. The Black House is set on the Isle of Lewis on the Outer Hebrides off the coast of northern Scotland. The landscape is extraordinary and bleak, the perfect setting for an atmospheric, well-written, well-plotted mystery. May’s detective, Fin MacLeod is pulled back from Edinburgh to investigate a brutal murder that forces MacLeod to confront his own traumatic younger self. I couldn’t wait to begin the sequel Lewis Man. So far it’s even better.
Signed copies of Lewis Man available while stocks last.
