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.

Couldn't make up my mind if this was a book with a story, or a travel book or a Weather forecast. What is for sure I would hate to visit any of the places named in this book. The whole book is just filled in with wind, rain and grass with rocks.

Hard-hitting and powerful, this psychological thriller has it all; sex, murder, power, glamour, secrets, lies, revenge and wicked moments of laugh out loud. Set in the colourful underbelly of glitterati London and the stunning Amalfi Coast. Stalkers, prostitutes, ex SAS, footballers, WAGs and the British press pay the price of childhood secrets, an abused cherubic choirboy pays the price of beauty and ladies who lunch pay the price of greed, deceit and lust - as evil steps centre stage. It’s no wonder this one's going to Hollywood.

I cant remember a more boring book. Full of rubbish emotions and plots that can be seen through from the start.
I waited until the end looking for something to restore it. No chance. How anybody can charge ?18.74 for this is beyond me.

Join John Parkin and his entertaining and enlightening guests on this audio version of his life philosophy of saying ‘F--k It’ and letting go.

With his first best-selling book, F--k It: The Ultimate Spiritual Way, John Parkin established that saying 'F--k It' was a spiritual act, helping us to let go, give up, and realise that things don’t matter as much after all.
