The Chessmen (Lewis Trilogy #3) by Peter May

Fin is yet again drawn into a mystery with crimes that span decades. His boyhood relationships are called into question as Fin uncovers the truth that starts with a loch that disappears overnight leaving something behind. His past is re-examined in great detail as he tries to put the pieces together but it seems that everyone on the island has their own version of the truth.

I have really enjoyed this series and this last book saw Fin’s emotions laid out. I would have a box of tissues ready for Fin’s big speech at the end where he faces his friend’s accusers.

May has a poetic way with words that I have become quite addicted to and I would describe it as almost gothic with his stunning descriptions of the Hebridean world. I highly recommend the audiobook version because the narrator’s accent brings out the beauty of May’s work.
