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.

    "Even better than The Blackhouse!"
    Any additional comments?

    After finishing The Blackhouse (which I loved), I couldn't wait to start on The Lewis Man, and certainly wasn't disappointed. I was worried that the different narrator would spoil the continuity, but if anything he was even better, and really caught the character of the old man, Tormoid McDonald. Superb narration by Peter Forbes of a carefully crafted story, with the same characters from The Blackhouse and a real feel of the Hebridean islands. Brilliant listen, and one of my favourite audible books so far. Can't wait to listen to the the next one!

    "Slow burner but worth it"

    I love a detective novel but this is a bit different. Thought it was going a bit slowly at first but it was necessary to build up the characters. I was gripped by the end!

    "Not so much a detective story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I have read and listened to better books. Not such a detective story more the difficult situation of Alzheimer patients.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Very poor


    Which character – as performed by Peter Forbes – was your favourite?

    As usual all impeccably performed


    Could you see The Lewis Man being made into a movie or a TV series? Who would the stars be?

    No afraid not

    "Great story, extremely well read"

    All five star apart from the swearing - is it really necessary? Poetic descriptions and characters with depth.

    "An earthy tale"

    I enjoyed this story in particular the evocative descriptions of both the Hebridean Isles and dementia. It was an interesting style jumping between stories present and past. My only criticism is that all the action came at the conclusion and leaving a little too much to take forward to the next book. I truly admire the range of accents produced by Peter Forbes and hope he continues reading these books for us.

    Story
    "Great story"

    Follow up to the Black House. Great story. Great narration. Same characters again . Another murder mystery story with so much more. Life on the Islands and then some. Religious hypocrisy and bigotry. Vengeance, honour, stupidity and the plain old hardships of life and the trials of getting old. Really worth the credit

    "disppointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Not sure really, it is a very sad story, I only listened to 2 hrs of it and couldn't listen any more. Too dreary, sorry.


    What was most disappointing about Peter May’s story?

    Probably not my sort of thing.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter Forbes’s performances?

    would give it a try

    "Superb!"
    Would you listen to The Lewis Man again? Why?

    Yes . . . . . but only after a while as this book was so good it will stay in my memory for some time to come.


    Which character – as performed by Peter Forbes – was your favourite?

    Tormid McDonald - The portrayal of an old man with alzheimers is amazing.


    Any additional comments?

    This is perhaps the best audio book I have ever listened to.

    Peter May's writing is outstanding with such accurate and atmospheric descriptions it places you right on the spot. You can easily visualise the landscape and the weather of the islands.

    Peter Forbes reading is perfect for this book, his diction is clear and precise, his accents and the voicing of the characters are extremely well done.

    I will certainly be purchasing the rest of this series of books.
