    The Blackhouse Read & Download × 108 There is something alluring at least for me with crime novels placed on islands especially those far up in the north with bad weather and people that have known each other for generations I mean it wouldn't be the same if it would be set on a Caribbean paradise for instance who would ever want to leave in the first place Too idyllic I prefer these dark and rugged places with old secretsFin Macleod From the clan Macleod

Summary The Blackhouse

Summary The Blackhouse The Blackhouse Read & Download × 108 Peter May × 8 Free read The Isle of Lewis is the most remote harshly beautiful place in Scotland where the difficulty of existence seems outweighed only by people's fear of God But older pagan values lurk beneath the veneer of faith the primal yearning for blood and revengeWhen a brutal murder on the island bears the hallmarks of a similar slaying in Edinburg. We left on the midnight tide diesel engines thudding as we slipped out into the bay from the relative shelter of the harbour facing into the huge swell waves breaking over the bow to pour in foaming rivers across the deck It seemed no time at all until the lights of Ness were swallowed by the night as we yawed and pitched into open seas beyond the Butt of Lewis The last thing to vanish was the comforting flash of the lighthouse on the clifftop at the Butt and when that was gone there was only the ocean Untold stormy miles of it If we missed the rock the next stop would be the ArticThe rock is An Sgeir barely a half mile long and no than a hundred yards across there is no soil or level land just shit covered rock rising straight out of the sea The men on the trawler have come for the Guga a Gaelic name otherwise known as Gannet They are carrying on a tradition that can be traced back hundreds of years once hunted for sustenance they hunt now to maintain a centuries old tradition and of course get a taste of the Guga They face brutal dangerous often lethal conditions on a narrow shit covered rock surrounded by the raging roaring north Atlantic Ocean in order to do soMay s prose is fluid seamlessly moving from past to present as the story unfolds so insanely rich in atmosphere I felt a part of the group on An Sgeir could smell the guano feel the ocean s fury pounding against the rock my hands and feet numb as I clung on for dear life amid the feathers and brouhaha of the teeming threatened Gannet This is a real tradition honoured by the men of the northern tip of the largest of the Western Islands of the Outer Hebrides archipelagos to this very day Fin Macleod grew up on Lewis and eighteen years ago made his first voyage to An Sgeir In the wake of tragic circumstances surrounding that trip Fin has escaped to Edinburgh where he makes a living as a copper investigating homicides But now he is being dispatched back to his boyhood home to investigate the potential connection in a murder disturbingly similar to an Edinburgh homicide So yes this is a crime story but the real cream of this tale lay in Fin s reflections of growing up on the Isle of Lewis and the history he left behind History that has been buried lo these many years but still fuels Fin s nightmares A history from which he will no longer be able to hide You would be well advised to take this trip back home and in time with Fin I promise you will be well rewarded with a gripping chilling atmospheric tale rich in ancient Gaelic culture and history My sincere thanks to Andrew Smith for putting this on my radar Woot45 crazy atmospheric stars cause yeah it is just that good
