A wonderfully complex book
Peter James, on Entry Island
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
Sophie Hannah
Wonderfully compelling
Kate Mosse
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

Instantly struck by the beauty of the descriptions of the wild island terrain as well as by the roundedness and complexity of the characterisations

One of the best regarded crime series of recent years

May's novels are strong on place and the wounds left by old relationships
