The Blackhouse Review ☆ 2 The Isle of Lewis is the most remote harshly beautiful place in Scotland where the difficulty of existence seems outweighed only by people's fear of God But older pagan values lurk beneath the veneer of faith the primal yearning for blood and revengeWhen a brutal murder on the island bears the hallmarks of a similar slaying in Edinburg We left on the midnight tide diesel engines thudding as we slipped out into the bay from the relative shelter of the harbour facing into the huge swell waves breaking over the bow to pour in foaming rivers across the deck It seemed no time at all until the lights of Ness were swallowed by the night as we yawed and pitched into open seas beyond the Butt of Lewis The last thing to vanish was the comforting flash of the lighthouse on the clifftop at the Butt and when that was gone there was only the ocean Untold stormy miles of it If we missed the rock the next stop would be the ArticThe rock is An Sgeir barely a half mile long and no than a hundred yards across there is no soil or level land just shit covered rock rising straight out of the sea The men on the trawler have come for the Guga a Gaelic name otherwise known as Gannet They are carrying on a tradition that can be traced back hundreds of years once hunted for sustenance they hunt now to maintain a centuries old tradition and of course get a taste of the Guga They face brutal dangerous often lethal conditions on a narrow shit covered rock surrounded by the raging roaring north Atlantic Ocean in order to do soMay s prose is fluid seamlessly moving from past to present as the story unfolds so insanely rich in atmosphere I felt a part of the group on An Sgeir could smell the guano feel the ocean s fury pounding against the rock my hands and feet numb as I clung on for dear life amid the feathers and brouhaha of the teeming threatened Gannet This is a real tradition honoured by the men of the northern tip of the largest of the Western Islands of the Outer Hebrides archipelagos to this very day Fin Macleod grew up on Lewis and eighteen years ago made his first voyage to An Sgeir In the wake of tragic circumstances surrounding that trip Fin has escaped to Edinburgh where he makes a living as a copper investigating homicides But now he is being dispatched back to his boyhood home to investigate the potential connection in a murder disturbingly similar to an Edinburgh homicide So yes this is a crime story but the real cream of this tale lay in Fin s reflections of growing up on the Isle of Lewis and the history he left behind History that has been buried lo these many years but still fuels Fin s nightmares A history from which he will no longer be able to hide You would be well advised to take this trip back home and in time with Fin I promise you will be well rewarded with a gripping chilling atmospheric tale rich in ancient Gaelic culture and history My sincere thanks to Andrew Smith for putting this on my radar Woot45 crazy atmospheric stars cause yeah it is just that good KING values lurk beneath the Ty jesteś moje imię veneer of faith the primal yearning for blood and revengeWhen a

The Blackhouse Review ☆ 2 E demands of modern morality For Fin the hunt recalls a horrific tragedy which after all this time may have begun to demand another sacrificeThe Blackhouse is a crime novel of rare power and vision Peter May has crafted a page turning murder mystery that explores the darkness in our souls and just how difficult it is to escape the past Rating 3 of five but just barelyThe Publisher Says From acclaimed author and television dramatist Peter May comes the first book in the Lewis Trilogy a riveting mystery series set on the Isle of Lewis in Scotland s Outer Hebrides a formidable and forbidding world where tradition rules and people adhere to ancient ways of life When a grisly murder occurs on the Isle of Lewis that has the hallmarks of a killing he s investigating on the mainland Edinburgh detective and native islander Fin Macleod is dispatched to see if the two deaths are connected His return after nearly two decades not only represents a police investigation but a voyage into his own troubled past As Fin reconnects with the places and people of his tortured childhood he feels the island once again asserting its grip on his psyche And every step forward in solving the murder takes him closer to a dangerous confrontation with the tragic events of the past that shaped and nearly destroyed Fin s life The Blackhouse is a thriller of rare power and vision that explores the darkest recesses of the soulMy Review This was a huge long slog of a story alternating between Fin the main character as narrator of his life of unremitting grimness and misery and third person limited basically the camera eye PoV that one would expect to find in a novel by a screenwriter This made the pace slow for me as each time we shift I have to hit the brakes or push in the clutch to shift upThis isn t to say that the author is a bad writer his prose is limpidly clear But keep Google open while you re reading since there are unexplained untranslated Gaelic words all over the place There are exciting sea scenes and tense moments of nailbiting stress during the islanders uniue rite of passage for malesThere are also characters who are unnecessary flashbacks of unconscionable length and uestionable necessity and an ending that will break a decent person s heartthat has holes the size of a gannet in it You ll get the joke later If the ending is true and I think it is true to the character and the build up the obliviousness of the responsible adults of the island is unconscionable and unpleasantTrigger warning for animal rights activists and the tenderhearted towards all gawd s creation and for child abuse Cenote vision Peter May has crafted a page turning murder mystery that explores the darkness in our souls and just how difficult it is to
