Descripción Quercus. 1 Cloth(s), 2012. hard. Estado de conservación: New. Fin Macleod has returned to the Isle of Lewis, the wind-scoured Hebridean island where he was born and raised, in this second book of Peter May's Lewis Trilogy, following the Barry Award winner The Blackhouse. Having left behind his adult life in Edinburgh, including his wife and his career in the police force, the former detective inspector is intent on repairing past relationships and restoring his parents' derelict cottage. Then one day the mummified body of a man is discovered in a peat bog; punctured by several stab wounds, the corpse is believed to be more than 2,000 years old—until the police spot the Elvis tattoo on the right arm. Winning the Barry Award in the United States and numerous awards in his adopted home of France—including the national literature award, the CEZAM Prix Litteraire—May's haunting trilogy follows Edinburgh detective inspector Fin Macleod as he is drawn back to his boyhood home, the Isle of Lewis, to solve a mystery. The starkly beautiful landscape of the Outer Hebrides becomes almost a character itself in this series, rendered in unforgettable detail by the Scottish-born author, creator of the Enzo Files and China Thrillers series as well as major drama series for Scottish television. "In mood and texture, Peter May's novels, set on the Isle of Lewis, are essentially Nordic, and he bears comparison with some of the best writers from those cold desolate climes. The plot throbs with past and present passions, jealousies, suspicions and regrets; the emotional secrets of the bleak island are even deeper than its peat bog."—Times (London) 373.
