Peter May writes good crime thrillers, no doubt about it. I really enjoyed the Lewis trilogy a few years ago. Entry Island was superb.
And so I settled down to this book, listening on my commutes over the last couple of weeks. The story hooks you from the start. OK, so the initial scene of a man washed up on a beach having lost his memory and not knowing who he is or what he is doing there is not entirely original, but it grabs attention, and we go from there.
And the story goes on. The pace never lets up. All the way to the final scene, which other reviewers would no doubt call ‘explosive’.
One thing I love is the descriptions of Lewis and Harris. I really need to visit the Outer Hebrides!
Yes, a good yarn. It doesn’t quite reach the heights of the books I mentioned earlier, so 8 out of 10.
