The Blackhouse Reviews

A rip-roaring thriller . . . thoroughly enjoyable * Mail on Sunday *
A wonderfully complex book
The Lewis Man shone like a bright star out of this year's book lists. Lyrical, empathetic and moving
He is a terrific writer doing something different * Mark Billingham *
From the first page I knew I was in safe hands. I knew I could trust this writer
Wonderfully compelling
Western France - now May's own stamping ground - is as much a character in the book as the Hebrides were in his formidable Isle of Lewis sequence * Guardian *
Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth * New York Times *
Instantly struck by the beauty of the descriptions of the wild island terrain as well as by the roundedness and complexity of the characterisations * The Times *
May's novels are strong on place and the wounds left by old relationships * Sunday Times *
Will have the reader relishing every tendency of description and characterization * Independent *
Dark, exciting and atmospheric * Scotland on Sunday *
Powerful and authentic * Glasgow Sunday Herald *
Fast, exciting ... an entertaining read that will also give food for thought * Irish Times *
A tense and atmospheric thriller with a heart-stopping ending * Tangled Web *
Truly the best of May's series so far, this is not to be missed * The Good Book Guide *

About Peter May

Peter May was born and raised in Scotland. He was an award-winning journalist at the age of twenty-one and a published novelist at twenty-six. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BCC, he quit journalism and during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland's most successful television dramatists. He created three prime-time drama series, presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland as script editor and producer, and worked on more than 1,000 episodes of ratings-topping drama before deciding to leave television to return to his first love, writing novels. He has won several literature awards in France, received the USA's Barry Award for The Blackhouse, the first in his internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy; and in 2014 was awarded the ITV Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Best Read of the Year award for Entry Island. Peter now lives in South-West France with his wife, writer Janice Hally.
