'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 Times. 'well worth reading' The Sunday Times. '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' Guardian. 'The depiction of the island atmosphere is as impressive as the action' The Sunday Telegraph. 'The book is gritty in a fine way ... a delight: bringing people and place alive in equal measure' Shots Mag. 'a hymn in praise of the beauties of the islands and miseries of their weather' Scotsman. 'as gripping as its predecessor ... well written, rendering almost visible the Hebridean landscapes, seascapes and customs' Literary Review. 'The Lewis Man, Peter May's sequel to last year's bestseller The Blackhouse is even more impressive than its predecessor' Big Issue Scotland. 'His landscape is authentic and, while what happens in the dark tales are things one hopes would be foreign, they become all too believable as they stream from his sharp pen' Northern Times. 'An exciting, page-turning thriller' Press Association. 'May skilfully combines pathos and the themes of identity, lost love and family ties to create an exciting, page turning thriller' Sheffield Star.
