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.

    Story
    "Loved it. Mellow but with enough action"

    A new author to me. At first I was willing this to move along more quickly but once I relaxed into the mellow, descriptive style I found it very engaging. It is beautifully written and narrated and, whilst not action packed, there were several threads throughout and there was enough happening to make me want to listen at every opportunity.

    "The Lewis man"

    I have really enjoyed the first two books of this triology and am looking forward to listening to the Chess man. The books are read beautifully and with feeling.

    Any additional comments?

    I almost switched off. This novel went on and on and on. I didn't switch off and I shall never regain the time spent listening to it.

    Story
    "Brilliant"
    What did you like most about The Lewis Man?

    It was the fact that you get to see the crime through two sets of peoples the retired detective and the man who was actually there


    What other book might you compare The Lewis Man to, and why?

    It was the first time I have ever listened to one of Lewis man books so I cannot compare it to any other as I think this book stands alone even though it is a thriller it also dels into what we all feel the most old-age and the dreaded word dementia


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    truthful at the beginning I didn't get into it but when I started really listening to the story I had to then start it from the beginning so I can say I enjoyed it from start to finish


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Some parts of the story make me cry only because my mum has dementia and through the story I can see what she's going through I never realised before that the mind is still there even though it's not in our Time but don't get me wrong there is more to this story then dementia it is greatly written and the narrator is well spoken


    Any additional comments?

    This is a really good story it has a few twists and turns and will keep you wondering so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did

    "Not as good as book 1 but hold its own"

    Early on I wanted to stop, the initial flash backs irritated me, too slow. Stuck with, it got better, ended strong.

    "Wow. A journey"

    Beautiful lyrical narrative. Wonderful narrator. At times a violent, but not gratuitously so. My first Peter Nay book. Not NY last!
