The Outer Hebrides (Scottish Gaelic: Na h-Eileanan Siar) ...
am 7. September 2013
... are one of the most remote places on our globe.
And a perfect setting for crimes - especially when it comes to dead people found in a bog. A first sight they may have been in the peat for hundreds of years or only for some decade.
On Lewis, the northernmost island of the Outer Hebrides, an unidentified corpse is recovered from a Lewis peat bog; the only clue to its identity being a DNA sibling match to a local farmer. But this islander, Tormod Macdonald - now an elderly man suffering from dementia - has always claimed to be an only child. When Tormod's family approach Fin Macleod for help, he feels duty-bound to solve the mystery.
Fin who has left the Police forces after the events that happened in the first book of the Lewis trilogy The Blackhouse (Lewis Trilogy), will apply all his experience to solve the mystery. Because Tormod is the father of Fin's first love Marsaili - now alone again, like him.
And after the autopsy it becomes clear that the youngster in the peat bog - dead for about 50 years - has been murdered.
For lovers of the stormy islands in the north of Scotland and their customs and traditions this book is a must-read.
It is full of mysteries and crimes and has e really breathtaking finish.
So I bought the third book The Chessmen (Lewis Trilogy 3), too, and will start to read it today. Can't await it!
