    Review quote
    'Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth' New York Times. 'This is the sort of novel that will have the reader relishing every tendency of description and characterisation ... a perfectly-formed trilogy' The Independent. 'Tightly plotted, with no skimping on either the nuances of character or the wonderfully evocative descriptions of rugged island landscapes that have made these books a true pleasure to read' The Guardian. 'Steeped in atmosphere ... The Chessmen takes the reader on an enticing reel, forwards, backwards, side to side, every step leading to a breathtaking climax' Daily Record. 'May's pellucid prose and his clever plot give vivid life to a harsh and rugged landscape and an equally hard-hewn community' The Irish Independent. 'Stunning' Belfast Telegraph. 'May's novels are strong on place and the wounds left by old relationships' Sunday Times.
