The isle of Lewis is a land of strange beauty, harsh living and inhabitants of deep-rooted faith. The isle of Lewis is a land of strange beauty, harsh living and inhabitants of deep-rooted faith. Detective Inspector Fin Macleod returns from Edinburgh to the island of his childhood to investigate a series of brutal killings. As old memories resurface and old friends reappear, Fin realizes that returning to the past will lead him into danger.

The Blackhouse is the first novel of The Lewis Trilogy by the Scottish writer Peter May. A suspense thriller, the action takes place mostly on the remote and weather-beaten Isle of Lewis off the coast of northern Scotland. The protagonist, Detective. The protagonist, Detective Inspector Finlay Macleod (known as Fin), a native of the island, is sent from his Edinburgh police station to investigate the murder of a man who, it transpires, was the bully at Fin’s school

A brutal killing has taken place on Scotland's most remote island. Detective Fin Macleod is sent from Edinburgh to investigate. For Lewis-born Macleod, the case represents a journey both home and into his past. But something lurks beneath the close-knit, God-fearing facade of the Lewis community. Something primal. As Fin investigates, old secrets are unearthed, and soon he, the hunter, becomes the hunted. The Blackhouse is a crime novel of rare power and vision. Peter May has crafted a page-turning murder mystery that explores the darkness in our soul, and just how difficult it is to escape the past.

I sat up and paid attention when The New York Times Book Review (Marilyn Stasio) raved: “Peter May is a writer I’d follow to the ends of the earth.” So, of course I added this author to my TBR list.
The Blackhouse is the first in a trilogy based in the Scottish Hebrides and featuring Edinburgh cop, Fin Macleod. Finn is sent to his childhood home on Lewis where a grisly murder on the isolated island seems to be a copy of a murder he has been investigating in Edinburgh.
Our detective is somewhat relieved to leave Edinburgh, as he grieves over the death of his young son, while half-heartily trying to prevent his marriage from crumbling.

But first a few warnings:

If you’re at all squeamish, you’ll have to tiptoe through; 1) a full and grisly autopsy, and 2) an honored, traditional, but gruesome, gannet hunt on a small island.

If you’re expecting a standard police procedural, you’re happily in for more than you bargained for ~~ this thriller has depth and power.

Now that you have read the Book Barmy safety warnings, fasten your seatbelts, because you are in for a great mystery read.

Mr. May is an extraordinary writer, able to take us seamlessly between two narratives. Masterfully moving from first person to develop Fin’s story growing up on Lewis, and then the third person to tell the current day story– Fin’s broken, disillusioned adult childhood friends, the crime, and its resolution.

Mr. May has a gift for developing his characters, all of which are remarkable, but Fin is an especially likeable hero. Having the grand experience of staying in the Outer Hebrides many years ago, I can attest that he also gives the reader unbelievably lovely descriptions of the harsh life in the Outer Hebrides — bleak, windy, and yet starkly beautiful.
The plot is a compelling mix of retribution, revelations, and intrigue.

High accolades for what turns out to be not only a tightly plotted thriller, but an insightful treatise on growing up, moving away, then coming home — one you thought you’d moved beyond.

From the introduction: Three things that come without asking: fear, love and jealousy. A Gaelic proverb

And thank you Mr. May for a brilliant ending.

I'm about two thirds through the book, and I love it. It's one of the best mysteries I've read in a long time. The setting on an island off Scotland is so real, I feel like I'm there with the characters. These people are quite different from any I've read about before. They are truly unique, much more than strange and truly unforgettable. I can't figure out who did the ghoulish murder, but have gotten so involved in all the characters, plots and subplots, I hardly care about who did it at this point. I already have several guesses as to who did it, but I think the tale has so much more depth and meaning than this that I only want to find out more about each character and their many involvements with each other, the island and, only finally, the murder. There are so many twists and turns and history repeating itself that I can barely put it down at night to go to sleep. I even dreamed about it last night -- not a bad dream, but an interesting, although strange, one. No wonder this novel has won so many awards.

This novel is so many things – a detective story, an adventure story, a sojourn in a strange and erotic world, and an amazing human drama.

Detective Inspector Fin Macleod is sent from Attenborough to investigate a murder on the remote Scottish island where he was born and raised. He doesn't want to go. He struggled so hard eighteen years ago to get away from his insular, claustrophobic homeland, the place where his parents died, his aunt died, and something inside him died.

The Isle of Lewis is windswept and battered by the sea. Fin's interviews with old friends and other locals reveal hard lives, wasted lives and lives beset by tragedy.

The arrogant chief investigating officer doesn't want Fin's help on this case, but Fin goes his own way. As he works on the mystery surrounding the murder, many of the mysteries and perplexities of his own past become clarified.

Peter May beautifully captures the brooding, weirdly beautiful landscapes of the Outer Hebrides. Much of the story revolves around the barbaric, centuries-old ritual followed by the locals of hunting the nesting gannet on the desolate island of An Sgeir. This treacherous and remote rock is the setting of the most dramatic scenes in the book. The hunt is in fact an ancient Hebridean tradition, and it's vividly brought to life in Peter May's account.

I found this book fascinating. It crosses the boundaries of several literary genres to create a rich reading experience.

This is a compelling narrative which begins as a murder mystery but soon becomes a search for one's soul. There is a critical element of lost love which makes the reader look back on his/her own life to reflect on the unanticipated consequences of simple decisions. The theme of the book can be wrapped up in one word - REGRET. It is the best book I have read in decades. I had to wrestle with my feelings after finishing the book before I could proceed to finish the trilogy.

Police detective Fin Macleod is sent from Edinburgh, Scotland to the Isle of Lewis, way up north, to investigate a murder similar to one that occurred in Edinburgh. The scene of the new murder is also the scene of Fin's unhappy childhood. The ways in which his childhood was unhappy provides almost as much suspense as the murder mystery.

I loved the character of Fin, saddened by the recent death of his child, sent to face the ghosts of his own childhood. The remote locale was fascinating, especially the scenes in which the characters go to an even more remote mountain in the middle of the sea to engage in a ritual hunt and confront the truth.

I strongly recommend this book, the first in the trilogy. I have ordered the second and am eagerly awaiting its arrival. I can't get enough!
