The Lewis Man (2011)
language
English
series
4.17 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: A worthy successor to the first volume in this series. Not a lot of tension until the very end, and not a lot of mystery either, since what happened to the victim, at least in general outline, is pretty clear to the reader early on. But nevertheless fun to watch the detectives, w...

review 1: A very enjoyable read. At times I found it a bit slow paced and my overall impression is that it spent 480 pages steadily building up to a thrilling 50 page conclusion. I also thought that the way the two storylines were put together felt a little forced at times and I found myse...

review 1: When the book opens, a man has been killed and gutted on the Isle of Lewis. Because the MO is similar to another murder in Edinburgh, the investigator, a native of the island, is sent to Lewis to see if there is a connection. What follows is not a straight forward investigation o...

review 1: Série je u konce (?). Jsem ráda, že se příběh uzavřel, ale pořád jsem z té série moc nadšená. Všechny tři díly na mě působily podobně - dlouho dlouho dlouho povídání, až si člověk začne říkat, že to je takové moc pomalé, a najednou to přijde. Ta nečekaná gradace, pointa. Moc mě t...
Extraordinary People (2007)
language
English
3.57 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: Competently written, but full of the improbable leaps of logic that bedevil a lot of wilder detective fiction. The premise is completely mad and entirely too much of the book is spent on computer searches and long descriptions of shapely graduate students clicking things whilst o...

review 1: Really enjoyed this combination of crime novel and historical saga. Sime McKenzie works for the Canadian Surete and is part of a team sent to an isolated island at the mouth of the St. Lawrence to investigate the murder of its richest inhabitant. The immediate suspect is the vict...

review 1: A murder in Edinburgh. A murder on a remote island off the northern coast of Scotland. Same MO. Is there a link? Fin, a detective, is sent back to the Isle of Lewis, where he was born and raised, to see if there is any connection. But the tiny village, his hometown, is full of m...

review 1: In the final book in the trilogy Fin has moved on with his life, moving onto something new. Sadly, however, it seems as though it is impossible to run from the past.As with the first book it alternates between Fin’s experience in the modern day and his history, allowing you to fa...
