Biographie de l'auteur
Peter May was born and raised in Scotland. He was an award-winning journalist at the age of twenty-one and a published novelist at twenty-six. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BCC, he quit journalism and during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland's most successful television dramatists. He created three prime-time drama series, presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland as script editor and producer, and worked on more than 1,000 episodes of ratings-topping drama before deciding to leave television to return to his first love, writing novels.
He has won several literature awards in France, received the USA's Barry Award for The Blackhouse, the first in his internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy; and in 2014 was awarded the ITV Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Best Read of the Year award for Entry Island. Peter now lives in South-West France with his wife, writer Janice Hally.

I give it 1 star, only because he shows his true talent on all too rare occasions - making it even more frustrating.

Consequently I am a bit bemused by some of the other reviews and the polarisation of views. This is pulp fiction, that's all it's meant to be and it's meant to entertain. It isn't meant to be high art that challenges or stimulates deep thought and contemplation. As a standalone book of 400 or so pages it's never going to contain the character developments or the complexities of the Lewis Trilogy or the Enzo Files that are built over the course of the series [as an aside I recently read one of the Enzo books out of sequence, a good book but I struggled to enjoy it because it didn't work as a standalone]. And of course there are inaccuracies that will vex the pedantic, nothing's ever perfect get over it, this is not meant to educate or inform it doesn't have to be right to the nth degree it's fiction.
So climbing off my hobby horse what really counts is the quality of the story, it's cohesion and the writing style. While the story is sufficiently far-fetched to be entertaining, there are no quantum leaps of deduction or massive holes in the plot, keeping it on the right side of credible. May unfolds the story at a brisk pacey but manages to include some evocative descriptive writing of the sights, sounds and smells, and ok these might be a bit repetitive but they aren't an extended exercise in the use adjectives or adverbs, similes or metaphors. There are a few unlikely characters but that's fiction, however there is one lengthy and unnecessary backstory diversion that reads like a device to get the page count-up that goes on far too long and added little but detracted a lot [minus one star].
So on that basis it's a four star page-turning pulp fiction thriller.
