I recommend this book published 2011.
Though Peter May is award winning and very prolific, this is the first of his many books that I’ve read.
The Blackhouse is a suspense thriller, first novel of The Lewis Trilogy, written by the Scottish writer Peter May.
The action takes place mostly on the remote and weather-beaten Isle of Lewis off the coast of northern Scotland.
Detective Inspector Finlay Macleod (known as Fin), a native of the island, is sent from his Edinburgh police station to investigate the murder …
One unique thread is the annual guga hunt. Men from Fin’s village of Ness sail end of summer to the tiny rock island of Sula Sgeir. They harvest a maximum of 2,000 gannet chicks (known as gouge) from their nests. That’s been a tradition since well before 1549.
