The Blackhouse

The Blackhouse (Lewis Trilogy, #1)The Blackhouse by Peter May
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really liked this, it was just what I needed after the squirmyness of Val McDermid, The Blackhouse may be a murder story but the murder is very secondary. The book is more about DI Fin Macleod’s return to his childhood home of Lewis, a remote Scottish island. Fin had left the island under a shadow and the murder of a childhood bully meant that he was thrown back in with the people from his past. The book covers in flashback, events from Fin’s childhood and it is all incredibly atmospheric.
