An unidentified corpse is recovered from a Lewis peat bog; the only clue to its identity being a DNA sibling match to a local farmer.

When Tormod's family approach Fin Macleod for help, Fin feels duty-bound to solve the mystery.

'In mood and texture, Peter May's novels [...] are essentially Nordic, and he bears comparison with some of the best writers from those cold desolate climes'
The Times

. 'as good as its superb predecessor, The Blackhouse

. 'The depiction of the island atmosphere is as impressive as the action
The Sunday Telegraph

About Peter May

Peter May was born and raised in Scotland. He was an award-winning journalist at the age of twenty-one and a published novelist at twenty-six. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BCC, he quit journalism and during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland's most successful television dramatists. He created three prime-time drama series, presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland as script editor and producer, and worked on more than 1,000 episodes of ratings-topping drama before deciding to leave television to return to his first love, writing novels.
