THE FINAL VOLUME IN PETER MAY'S LANDMARK LEWIS TRILOGY

"MAGICAL." — KIRKUS REVIEWS


"UTTERLY ABSORBING." — BOOKLIST (STARRED REVIEW)

"A PERFECTLY FORMED TRILOGY." — THE INDEPENDENT


Living again of the Isle of Lewis, ex-Detective Inspector Fin Macleod is working as a security officer for a local landowner. While investigating illegal activity on the estate, Fin encounters his former childhood friend and bandmate, the elusive poacher Whistler Macaskill.

When Fin catches up with Whistler among the windswept hills of the estate, the two witness a freak natural phenomenon—a bog burst—which drains a loch of all its water in a flash, revealing a mud-encased light aircraft with a sickeningly familiar moniker on its side.

Both men immediately know what they will find inside: the body of Roddy Mackenzie, a friend whose flight disappeared more than seventeen years before. But when Whistler's face appears to register something other than shock, an icy chill of apprehension overtakes Fin. What secret has Whistler been hiding from him, and everyone else on the island?

Masterful account of a young man comimg of age on windswept Scottish Isle of Lewis. Leaving his birthplace only to return for a murder case. Or so it seems at first

I just finished "Chessmen" and after so enjoying the exceptionally well-written first two in this trilogy, I have to wonder who actually wrote this last book. This last one was so poorly written and the story line had so many holes in it that I can only think that if it actually had been written by Peter May, he must've been in a great hurry to simply turn in a set amount of words. Sorry I paid so much for this one...very disappointed.

the author leads you on a chase thru the remote isles off Scotland while weaving several stories together into one. I have truly enjoyed Peter Mays trilogy and hope to hear more of him.
