THE NEW START
Fin Macleod, now head of security on a privately owned Lewis estate, is charged with investigating a spate of illegal game-hunting taking place on the island.
THE OLD FRIEND
This mission reunites him with Whistler Macaskill – a local poacher, Fin’s teenage intimate, and possessor of a long-buried secret.

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 the age of twenty-six. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BBC, he quit journalism and, during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland’s most prolific television dramatists. He created three major television drama series and presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland before quitting television to concentrate on 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 Entry Island was awarded the ITV Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Best Book of the Year, as well as the Deanston Scottish Crime Book of the Year. May now lives in south-west France with his wife, writer Janice Hally.
