When Harold Fry nips out one morning to post a letter, leaving his wife hoovering upstairs, he has no idea that he is about to walk from one end of the country to the other. He has no hiking boots or map, let alone a compass, waterproof, or mobile phone. All he knows is that he must keep walking - to save someone else's life.

Jim Broadbent's reading was excellent. Perfect for Harold. I found it a real 'life journey' and travelled with Harold step by step and mile by mile. I LOVED listening to this and looked forward to my daily travelling to and from work time so I could listen to the next installment.

An unidentified corpse is recovered from a peat bog on the Isle of Lewis, Scotland. News of the discovery soon reaches Fin Macleod. However, since swapping his life in Edinburgh for a quiet existence on Lewis, such mysteries are no longer a concern for the former detective inspector. Or so he thought. The sequel to The Blackhouse, which was selected for the WH Smith Richard and Judy Bookclub, and the second book in the Lewis trilogy.

Peter May's description of the Scottish Isles is wonderful. I could smell the peat and hear the squelch of the land in this atmospheric whodunnit. This sequel to the excellent 'Black House' also stands alone as a story in its own right. Peter May's characters draw in our sympathy and we live the island's past and present through their eyes and voices. Exquisite writing, strong story telling and well read.
