Fin McLeod has returned to the Isle of Lewis, retired from the police force and intending to rebuild his parents' croft. Marsaili who was his love in his youth is wrestling with going back to college, her son's new baby, and her father's increasing senility. When a body is found buried in a nearby bog, DNA shows that it is related to Marsaili's father, Tormund. It's up to Fin to track down what happened and who the body is.
This is such an excellent series. It is probably more about life in the Outer Isles of Scotland than a real police procedural which puts it in a class by itself. Fin is a complex man. It is interesting to see him go back to his roots, to the people he knew in his youth, and how he reacts. Chapters alternate with Tormund's first-person accounts from inside his lost mind as he recounts what he can remember of the story. I really like the story of his life, how he was a Catholic 'homer' or orphan and what happened to him as a result. It's a very interesting facet of Scottish history.
The writing is superb; I've been to Lewis and Harris and Mr. May captures the landscape precisely. I recommend this series highly.

My husband is going to Scotland in 3 days, and so I wanted to be prepared. I wanted to be able to envision the Hebrides, and so I started the first book of Peter May's Lewis Trilogy, The Black House. That was yesterday afternoon, and here I am, writing a review of the second book, The Lewis Man. These books are far more than the usual police procedurals. May writes like a poet or perhaps a painter, creating visual effects that are simply stunning. Whether describing the plight of orphans, or the death of a lamb or a man, scenes are syncretic. The reader can see sunshine, harsh rain, wildflowers, and the endless sea. Yes, each book is well plotted, and the characters are realistic, appealing. There is also a penetrating humanity in May's writing, sympathy for the old man with dementia and complexity in many major characters. I look forward to volume 3. Now I wish I were going to Scotland too, although the midges make my skin crawl, even through the pixels on an iPad!

This is, of course, the second in May's superb trilogy, (although I also recommend Coffin Road, which is in the same locale with one or two connected characters). The theme of Scottish (and British) abandonment and relocation of children is tough to take, and the many sub-stories involving the characters here all tie together, and merge into the final book, The Chessmen. This is the best and most coherent book in the trilogy. May's ability to create characters, subplots and appealing or appalling personalities is nowhere better served than in this book (in the Chessmen, he leaves at least 4 major characters dangling). I can't recommend a modern mystery more than this. Try the Adrian McKinty Sean Duffy series after this.

The second book of the Lewis Trilogy series extends the dominance of the island as a primary character. The descriptive words penned by the author paint a vivid picture of the beauty and starkness of the island, sometimes to excess.
A story line develops which captures the history of a movement to disperse orphaned and abandoned children throughout the islands. Although heartbreaking, this history lesson is extremely interesting and moving. The island vista, the sadness and isolation of the inhabitants along with the murder creates an overall bleakness to the novel.
The primary story line of the novel is on a quest to solve the murder of the body discovered in the bog. This storyline takes the reader on a journey into the past. The journey is interesting but not compelling.
I would not call this book a thriller or a page turner. I will read the third book in the trilogy in hopes that at least one character finds some happiness.

He's done it again. Peter May is my favorite new author. Once again the setting is Scotland with a murder that took place years ago. The then and now are intricately tied together with the author revealing those ties one by one. May has the gift of storytelling. I love how he moved from the past to the now with a clear story line that held my interest to a point that I kept picking the book up every chance I had, which is rare for me. Every enjoyable. I look forward to his next book.

This is the second book in the Lewis trilogy by Peter May. As with the first book in the trilogy, The Black House, it is beautifully written and captivating. Unlike The Black House, It is not as dark in tone nor as depressing. I read the book straight through without having to stop to read something light and funny every so many chapters so that my head would clear, as I did with The Black House. It uses the device of a third person story in one chapter and an interior monologue in another to weave the facts together. Instead of Fin's interior monologue, the monologue belongs to a old farmer in the throes of dementia, Tormod Macdonald who is the father of Fin's childhood sweetheart, Marsaili. Fin is still the "good guy" if you could call a brooding, slightly depressed ex-policeman, a "good guy". Most all of the characters in the first book are in this one and new dimension is added to their personalities as well. I highly recommend both books -- but the storyline in this one was a much easier emotional read.

The Lewis Man is the second book in the Lewis Trilogy in Peter May's very readable series. The characters are vividly written, and the reader is drawn into the lives of the people who filled Fin's formative years. Surprises for the reader are enhanced by the setting of the book in the Outer Hebrides, which is a wild and remote chain of islands off the west coast of mainland Scotland. I read all three books in the trilogy, one right after the other. By the end of The Chessmen, book 3, I wished I could continue to know what happens to Fin, Marsalis, and their son, Fionnlagh.
