Reviews for books in the series
Book 1: Blackhouse – “Pitch-perfect dialogue and creepy, spine-tingling storytelling . . . [A] bleak, wild, atmospheric novel.” Scotsman
Book 2: Lewis Man – “It is a relief to find that the second novel in May’s Isle of Lewis trilogy is as good as its superb predecessor, The Blackhouse...This is not only a good mystery, but also a moving and evocative portrayal of a place where the unforgiving weather is matched only by the church’s harsh patronage.” The Guardian
Both books are now part of the ESTEC collection.
