Peter May is an excellent writer.
Former police detective Fin McLeod is back on the remote Scottish Isle of Lewis of his birth.
He found work as security officer for a local landowner. Mostly chasing down poachers.
The opening of this book is fantastic. Finn and childhood friend Whistler happened to witness a freak natural phenomenon–a bog burst–which drains a loch of all its water in a flash.
Revealed below was a mud-encased light aircraft. Finn immediately knows it’s Roddy Mackenzie plane, a friend whose flight disappeared more than seventeen years earlier.
So it begins.
