Review quote

'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' Guardian. 'The depiction of the island atmosphere is as impressive as the action' The Sunday Telegraph. 'instantly struck by the beauty of the descriptions of the wild island terrain as well as by the roundedness and complexity of the characterisations' The Times. 'powerful and authentic' Glasgow Sunday Herald. 'The Lewis Man shone like a bright star out of this year's book lists. Lyrical, empathetic and moving' Alex Gray. 'Dark, exciting and atmospheric ... it even surpasses the first tale' Scotland on Sunday.
