The Chessmen Reviews

'Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth' New York Times. * New York Times *
'Steeped in atmosphere ... The Chessmen takes the reader on an enticing reel, forwards, backwards, side to side, every step leading to a breathtaking climax' Daily Record. * Daily Record *
'Stunning' Belfast Telegraph. * Stunning' Belfast Telegraph *
'This is the sort of novel that will have the reader relishing every tendency of description and characterisation ... a perfectly-formed trilogy' Independent. * Independent *

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.
