Marilyn Stasio in The New York Times raved: "Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth." Among the many honors received, The Blackhouse, the first novel in May's acclaimed Lewis trilogy, won the Barry and Crime Thriller Hound awards. In The Lewis Man, the second book of the trilogy, Fin Macleod has returned to the Isle of Lewis, the storm-tossed, wind-scoured outer Hebridean island where he was born and raised. Having left behind his adult life in Edinburgh--including his wife and his career in the police force--the former Detective Inspector is intent on repairing past relationships and restoring his parents' derelict cottage. His plans are interrupted when an unidentified corpse is recovered from a Lewis peat bog. The only clue to its identity is a DNA match to a local farmer, the now-senile Tormod Macdonald--the father of Fin's childhood sweetheart, Marsaili--a man who has claimed throughout his life to be an only child, practically an orphan. Reluctantly drawn into the investigation, Fin uncovers deep family secrets even as he draws closer to the killer who wishes to keep them hidden. Already an international bestseller and winner of numerous awards, including France's Prix des Lecteurs du Telegramme, The Lewis Man has the lyrical verve of Ian Rankin and the gutsy risk-taking of Benjamin Black. As fascinating and forbidding as the Hebridean landscape, the book (according to The Times) "throbs with past and present passions, jealousies, suspicions and regrets; the emotional secrets of the bleak island are even deeper than its peat bog."

Peter May po raz kolejny zabiera nas na mroczną wyspę Lewis i po raz kolejny jest to wykonane w dobrym stylu. Jest tak samo dobra jak pierwsza.

5.0 Lewis Man (Lewis Trilogy 2)
This is a well written tale. The vocabulary used several steps up from the usual especially when memories are being related.You can hear the ocean and the wind and imagine the bleakness of the land.If you saw the characters you could recognise each one by the details of their stature and colouring...

2.0 Lewis Man (Lewis Trilogy 2)
Didn't enjoy it as much as 'The Black House' - maybe I just wasn't in the mood.
