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 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.
