Shortlisted for the Theakstons Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year Award 2015.

Following the undoubted popular success of his China-based thrillers, his Enzo Files set in France and the bestselling Lewis trilogy which highlighted the cold exotica of the Hebrides, Peter May now offers a lengthy stand alone blockbuster of a mystery set on an island in the Gulf of St Lawrence in Canada, where the local community are mostly of Scottish descent, as is Detective Sime Mackenzie who is sent there as a result to investigate an uncommon crime by the Quebec Surete. The plot unfolds both in the present and the historical past in the Hebridean islands which has a bearing on the brutal contemporary murder. Stark characters moulded by life and the rugged landscape, atmospherics to kill for and a police procedural with a strong, humane difference. Another hit! ~ Maxim Jakubowski

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Like his famous Lewis Trilogy, this stand-alone mystery has a dual-time frame and a small island setting. This time it is a remote Canadian island. One of the investigating team has Scottish ancestry and when he meets the suspect, the wife of the murdered man, he has an odd feeling of recognition. She awakens childhood memories and through these we get a large slice of Scottish history and the horrors of the Highland clearances. These two strands come together in a most satisfying ending. Highly recommended.
