Description

This is not written with the depth of the Lewis trilogy, but with an eye more for a diverting, delightful read that will have your Scottish Morn tea cooling in the cup before you remember to take a sip.

Coffin Road by Peter May | Goodreads Coffin Road by Peter May | Goodreads

I can’t say that the experience quite matched up to the Lewis Trilogy – in truth, I never expected it would – but it was a good tale, well told. Neal sees bills in his name and various documents, including a map which someone had marked the word Coffin Road, which was on the table, but Neal had no idea what it meant. The story perspective bounces around like a demented ping pong ball and it might have you checking back to make sure you’ve read things correctly.With a sense of dread and no clear idea what lies at the other end, he knows he must follow the trail if he has any hope of discovering his identity. The Blackhouse starts the series off with Fin Macleod, a police detective and native born of the Isle of Lewis, on a murder investigation that takes him back to his roots. The only clue is a well-thumbed Ordnance Survey map of Harris, with a route sketched out in marker pen. The story was involved but always intriguing, I enjoyed the characters very much and there was a bit of a twist at the end which I was not expecting.

Book review: Coffin Road by Peter May - Debbish Book review: Coffin Road by Peter May - Debbish

From this bare premise May conjures a clever, twisty eco-thriller in the mode of Le Carré’s The Constant Gardener.Another suspenseful tale from Peter May, although not quite as enjoyable for me as his three previous Lewis novels.
