Publisher's Summary

An unidentified corpse is recovered from a peat bog on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. News of the discovery soon reaches Fin Macleod. However, since swapping his life in Edinburgh for a quiet existence on Lewis, such mysteries are no longer a concern for the former Detective Inspector. Or so he thought. The sequel to the Blackhouse which was selected for the WH Smith Richard and Judy Bookclub, and the second book in the Lewis triology.

    "Amazing!"

    I loved this book so much! I think it was even better than the Blackhouse. A wonderful story and excellent performance. I can't wait to listen to the chessman!

    Story
    "A different and richly described setting"

    I came to this book knowing absolutely nothing about the Scottish Islands and their culture, for that reason what I enjoyed most here was all the wonderful descriptions of the landscapes and weather etc. The story it mostly great too, although I thought the twists with the identity of the characters and the murder were a little obvious at times.

    "Narrator spot on"

    Loved this book, very well read by narrator, got the characters down to a T! Really made you think about dementia and how it affects people. Great story line too

    Story
    "Superb dark mystery"

    I love how this story starts out as a regular whodunnit, and then unravels bit by bit to a dark and very touching story of foolish things done in youth, of dementia and finding things that might have been lost forever.

    The telling is exquisite, being told from two (or more) people's point of view, and the narrator does a super job!

    I'd recommend this to anyone looking for a great murder mystery and a great listen!

    "Superb . Engaging and involving for the listener."

    I am glad I waited till I had collected all the audio books in this trilogy. Well worth the wait for both the quality of the story and narrator. Real emotional involvement in this one.

    Story
    "Beautifully written thriller"

    Really enjoyed this book. So many aspects to it. From the dementia of one of the main characters to the plot that takes you through many twists and turns.
    All beautifully written by a man who knows how to involve you in a story of strong characters.
    It's not fast paced but nevertheless very enjoyable.
