Editorial Reviews

Review

"A Gordian-knotted plot . . . The final result is a fascinating glimpse into a shameful and frequently overlooked aspect of British history. The author has followed the ties that spread out from the Hebrides to the strong Scottish Gaelic-speaking communities on North America's eastern seaboard and used them to embellish a modern murder mystery."―The Independent


"May is the master of painting a vivid picture of his chosen landscapes and weaving a fascinating plot. The research he has packed in to this well-paced dual tale is impressive . . . An absorbing read from a writer at the top of his game."
Daily Express


"Breathes fresh life into his writing while allowing many of the themes he likes to explore, such as secrets from the past that carry through to the present, to be revisited."―
Crimepieces

"For those who enjoy a historical and social context--I have no hesitation in recommending
Entry Island as an exciting, absorbing and moving story."―Lynn Harvey, Eurocrime

"May follows his superb Lewis trilogy with an equally absorbing work . . . Mackenzie's historical quest merges rivetingly with his 21st century police work."―
Marcel Berlins, The Times

"Told with exceptional clarity and a fine eye for the claustrophobia of island life, it weaves a hypnotic spell as it jumps between generations and proves that May is a writer to be cherished."―
Geoffrey Wansell, The Daily Mail

"Fans of May's Lewis trilogy (
The Chessmen, etc.) will welcome this solid standalone, which likewise involves crime on an isolated island . . . Mackenzie's dreams of 19th century Scottish crofters (farmers) and their doomed struggle with powerful landowners, a conflict known as the Highland Clearances, which directly affected his ancestors and perhaps Kirsty's too, provide a powerful counterpoint to the present-day story line."―Publishers Weekly

"This is a tale of two islands, two mysteries, and two places and times. A tale of misfits isolated within their own cultures, and a tale of cultures battling each other, both in the 1800s and today."―
Suspense Magazine

"A police procedural with elements of romance plus a healthy infusion of historical fiction. That it works so well is owing to May's ability to create atmosphere you can cut with a dirk and to his storytelling prowess that sweeps all before it."―
Library Journal

"May skillfully braids his two story lines into both a gripping mystery and a vivid, fully realized novel of lost love, yearning, and unbearable hardship."―
Seattle Times --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

"Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth" New York Times

Peter May is the multi award-winning author of:

- the Lewis Trilogy set in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland;

- the China Thrillers, featuring Beijing detective Li Yan and American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell;

- the Enzo Files, featuring Scottish forensic scientist Enzo MacLeod, which is set in France. The sixth and final Enzo book is Cast Iron (January 2017, Riverrun).

He has also written several standalone books:

- I'll Keep You Safe (January 2018, Riverrun)

- Entry Island (January 2014, Quercus UK)

- Runaway (January 2015, Quercus UK)

- Coffin Road (January 2016, Riverrun)

May had a successful career as a television writer, creator, and producer.

One of Scotland's most prolific television dramatists, he garnered more than 1000 credits in 15 years as scriptwriter and script editor on prime-time British television drama. He is the creator of three major television drama series and presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland before quitting television to concentrate on his first love, writing novels.

Born and raised in Scotland he lives in France.

His breakthrough as a best-selling author came with The Lewis Trilogy. After being turned down by all the major UK publishers, the first of the The Lewis Trilogy - The Blackhouse - was published in France as L'Ile des Chasseurs d'Oiseaux where it was hailed as "a masterpiece" by the French national newspaper L'Humanité. His novels have a large following in France. The trilogy has won several French literature awards, including one of the world's largest adjudicated readers awards, the Prix Cezam.

The Blackhouse was published in English by the award-winning Quercus (a relatively young publishing house which did not exist when the book was first presented to British publishers). It went on to become an international best seller, and was shortlisted for both Barry Award and Macavity Award when it was published in the USA.

The Blackhouse won the US Barry Award for Best Mystery Novel at Bouchercon in Albany NY, in 2013.
