Detective Inspector Fin Macleod is sent from Edinburgh to investigate a brutal murder on the Island of Lewis. For Lewis-born Macleod, the case represents a journey both home and into his past.
The Blackhouse is a well written, enjoyable coming of age story, as well as a murder mystery. The characters are interesting and the scenery brilliantly described.
The title and tagline are a bit misleading. The story was not what I was expecting, but highly recommended none the less.
