#amreading The Lewis Man, Peter May

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

2nd in the Lewis Trilogy, I've pretty much started this one straight after the first, The Blackhouse.

From the Blurb:

A body is recovered from a peat bog on the Isle of Lewis. The male Caucasian corpse is initially believed by its finders to be over 2000 years old, until they spot the Elvis tattoo on his right arm. The body, it transpires, is not evidence of an ancient ritual killing, but of a murder committed during the latter half of the 20th century.

Latest from the audio pile.

From the Blurb:

Peter May has crafted a page-turning murder mystery that explores the darkness in our souls, and just how difficult it is to escape the past. Winner of Prix Ancres Noires 2010. The Blackhouse was published in French as L'Ile des Chasseurs D'Oiseaux before publication in English, and won the prestigious 'Prix des Lecteurs' (readers' prize) at the Le Havre festival of crime writing.

#amreading Let the Dead Speak, Jane Casey

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

The bonus about being laid low by illness has definitely been the excellent books to read - this was one of them.

From the Blurb:

When eighteen-year-old Chloe Emery returns to her West London home she finds her mother missing, the house covered in blood. Everything points to murder, except for one thing: there’s no sign of the body.
