Sense of place on the Isle of Lewis is wonderful. A skeleton found buried in the floor of an old family blackhouse, a missing hiker, and a long ago death of a friend add up for a good solid mystery. Love his books!

The setting is: a successful city businessman is being divorced and, tiring of city life, he decides to return to his childhood Hebredian island home. He has a passion to restore an old family traditional dwelling. Then he finds a body...

From this point on suspicions and paranoia set in. He starts to question the actions and motives of previously trusted family and friends.

This novel is fairly successful in creating an atmosphere of claustrophobic tension.

All in all, worth a read.

Not actually a sequel to "The Road Dance", though it mentions a number of events & people from it, and it is also set on the island of Lewis. Like the first book, it has a mystery that is not resolved until the end.

A story from Carloway, Isle of Lewis, in Scotland. Interesting, if slightly drawn out.
