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
    "Hebridean crime"


    Really enjoyed this book and felt I could relate better to the characters after listening to The Black house. However you do not need to have read it but it certainly helps.

    The beautiful Scottish scenery is described so well this should be part of the Scottish tourist boards reading list.

    Great narration by Peter Forbes whose gentle Scottish tones make for easy listening.

    Story
    "gently seductive and moving"

    I wanted a detective story with lots of suspense - as I began to listen I suspected that this book would be too slow and gentle for me. But gradually i was drawn into a truly moving tale with interesting characters, and a compelling mystery at its heart. The star of the show is the narrator who created utterly believable male and female characters from different places with the subtlest of changes in inflection. a real little jewel of a book.

    Story
    "Gripping, tragic, and haunting"
    What did you like best about this story?

    The vulnerability of Tormod especially when he talks about how people treat him.


    Any additional comments?

    Fin is back on the island after divorcing his wife and quitting the police force. It isn’t long before he’s thrown back into the detective scene. A body washes up on the shore and he has to find out what happened before it tears another family apart.
    This is even more haunting than the first book in the series. Fin takes us through the clues that lead back to Charlie’s Beach while Tormod tells the story in fragments through the eyes of a man with Alzheimers. Both lead to danger. The story is beautifully told, tragic, and gripping.

    Story
    "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!

    Story
    "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!

    Story
    "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.
