The Critic - (Enzo Files #2) Another Winner from Peter May   So over the last few days I've spent a lot of time looking forward to what I want to read and back at what I've read.

Book 2 in Peter May’s Lewis Trilogy – The Lewis Man – another winner!

The Lewis Man is the second book in Peter May's wonderful Lewis Trilogy and in the words of The Guardian it is..... "As good as its predecessor...not only a good mystery, but also a moving and evocative portrayal of a place where the weather is matched only by the church's harsh patronage...." The place is the Isles of Lewis, from the book's  prologue.... On this storm lashed island three hours off the northwest coast of Scotland, what little soil exists gives the people their food and their heat. It also takes their dead. And very occasionally, as today, gives one up....
