A Sunday Times and Richard and Judy best seller and the first instalment in Peter May's sensational, million-selling Lewis trilogy.
A brutal killing takes place on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland: a land of harsh beauty and inhabitants of deep-rooted faith.
Detective Inspector Fin Macleod is sent from Edinburgh to investigate. For Lewis-born Macleod, the case represents a journey both home and into his past.
Something lurks within the close-knit island community. Something sinister.
As Fin investigates, old skeletons begin to surface, and soon he, the hunter, becomes the hunted.
I can’t rave enough about Peter May’s books, I only discovered them this year and I’m happily overdosing on them. Plus, now I’ve heard Peter Forbes narration, well he just leaves others standing!
