The Chessmen: The Lewis Trilogy – Peter May

ChessmenFin couldn’t believe his eyes.  The loch was gone, truly gone.  The water had disappeared overnight.  Whistler’s theory was of a bog burst, a phenomenon that can happen after a heavy rain.  But Fin wasn’t  listening.  He was focused on an object lying on the loch bottom – a small plane that looked far too familiar.  And so Fin is again involved in an investigation that leads to past secrets.

I love being transported to the Isle of Lewis.  Peter May’s descriptive passages are lyrical. The rugged  landscape and the equally rugged characters are vivid.  Solving the mystery seems less important to me than just soaking in the atmosphere.  This is the final book in the trilogy, and can be read as a stand alone.  I recommend it highly.
