Review quote

May's novels are strong on place and the wounds left by old relationships * Sunday Times * One of the best regarded crime series of recent years -- Boyd Tonkin, on the Lewis trilogy * Independent * 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 * Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth * New York Times * Western France - now May's own stamping ground - is as much a character in the book as the Hebrides were in his formidable Isle of Lewis sequence * Guardian * Wonderfully compelling -- Kate Mosse From the first page I knew I was in safe hands. I knew I could trust this writer -- Sophie Hannah He is a terrific writer doing something different -- Mark Billingham The Lewis Man shone like a bright star out of this year's book lists. Lyrical, empathetic and moving -- Alex Gray A wonderfully complex book -- Peter James, on Entry Island A rip-roaring thriller . . . thoroughly enjoyable * Mail on Sunday *
