COFFIN ROAD PETER MAY

A REAL MUST BUY MUST READ

THE MILLION-SELLING AUTHOR OF THE LEWIS TRILOGY BRINGS MURDER TO THE OUTER HEBRIDES.

A man stands bewildered on a deserted beach on the Hebridean Isle of Harris. He cannot remember who he is. The only clue to his identity is a folded map named the Coffin Road. He does not know where this search will take him.
A detective from Lewis sits aboard a boat, filled with doubt. DS George Gunn knows that  a bludgeoned corpse has been discovered on a remote rock twenty miles offshore. He does not know if he has what it takes to uncover how and why.
A teenage girl lies in her Edinburgh bedroom, desperate to discover the truth about her scientists father’s suicide. Two years on, Karen Fleming still cannot accept that he would wilfully abandon her. She does not yet know about his secret.
Coffin Road follows three perilous journeys towards one shocking truth – and the realisation that ignorance can kill us.
MY REVIEW
Peter May is certainly going from strength to strength with each book that he writes. If you haven’t discovered this author, now is the time to jump on board. I totally just couldn’t put this down. I can honestly say Peter May has given us something to think about in the story of Coffin Road, all of his thoughts are right to detail.  It is a sad thing in life some people go through, but we all know with certain illness that it can make some people forget things. In this page turning story, The reason Neal Maclean forgets who he is it is through being barely alive and borderline hypothermic.
What if you couldn’t remember know your name? or anything about you?
Neal Maclean is washed up on the beach, soaked through, freezing cold, he was only alive due to wearing a life jacket. He didn’t know his name or how he got washed up on the beach. He didn’t even know where he lived, it was someone who knew him by name, who had taken Neal to his Dune Cottage.What if you didn’t know your own house? For Neal Maclean it was rather bizarre, in his cottage he couldn’t find any photographs, passport, or a checkbook, not even any credit cards to help him discover who he is. He could only find a map that may connect him to his life.
Jon and Sally who have been married for eight years moved to Isle of Harris to try to patch up their marriage,they are good friends of Neal’s and regularly visit him. Jon questions Neal and wanted to know how Neal’s book was going that he was writing. On edge Neal can’t remember anything about writing a book.  The spice of the story heats up, just how much are Neal and Sally good friends?
What fans can expect is that the Million-selling author of the Lewis trilogy brings murder back to the outer Hebrides.
So much impressed me about Coffin Road it is a fabulous book to put on your Christmas list.

    I read “The Blackhouse” and loved it so I’m not surprised that you praised this title so highly. I would request “Coffin Road” on NetGalley but it is only available to the U.K. 😢. LOVE Peter May!
