The Blackhouse

From  Eileen Effrat
Author:  Peter May
Title:  The Blackhouse
This is the first in a planned trilogy featuring Inspector Fin Macleod of the Edinburgh police. Born and raised on the Isle of Lewis,he returns after 25 years to investigate a murder that has a similar pattern to a recent spate  of murders in Edinburgh. As he begins to unravel the connections,  Macleod   confronts 25 year old feuds and jealousies in this tight knit community. Although a police procedural, it is also a psychological study of Macleod’s homecoming after all those years. If this setting interests you, another TARTAN NOIR   series set in the Shetland Islands  and written by Ann Cleeves is a good choice. Start with Raven Black.
