Description

Winner of the ITV Crime Thriller Award Best Read 2014

Winner of the Scottish Crime Novel of the Year 2014

When Detective Sime Mackenzie boards a light aircraft at Montreal's St. Hubert airfield, he does so without looking back. For Sime, the 850 mile journey ahead represents an opportunity to escape the bitter blend of loneliness and regret that has come to characterise his life in the city. 

Travelling as part of an eight-officer investigation team, Sime's destination lies in the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Only two kilometres wide and three long, Entry Island is home to a population of around 130 inhabitants - the wealthiest of which has just been discovered murdered in his home. 

The investigation itself appears little more than a formality. The evidence points to a crime of passion, with the victim's wife the vengeful culprit. But for Sime the investigation is turned on its head when he comes face to face with the prime suspect and is convinced that he knows her - even though they have never met. 

Haunted by this certainty, his insomnia becomes punctuated by dreams of a distant past on a Scottish island 3,000 miles away. Dreams in which the widow plays a leading role. Sime's conviction becomes an obsession. And in spite of mounting evidence of her guilt, he finds himself convinced of her innocence, leading to a conflict between the professional duty he must fulfil and the personal destiny that awaits him.

Another excellent story from Peter May

This is a stand alone story from Peter May, with a good plot driven core and an interesting historical backdrop. The narration is perfect. The characters are full of body. We enjoyed it and will be seeking out more of Peter May's work.

Love this narrator!

What about Peter Forbes’s performance did you like?

I loved Peter Forbes's depiction of the different characters through his voice. The different accents for the different characters really helped bring the story to life! I have never heard such wonderful narration in an audio book - I will be looking for other books narrated by Mr. Forbes.

Any additional comments?

Intriguing story. I thought it was going to be a fantasy-time travel story, with the main character's connection to his great-great-great grandfather. Great combination of historical fiction, mystery, and romance. I hope to find more books like this on Audible.com.

History Comes Alive!

A fitting read as Remembrance Day approaches! Stop and look around at our beloved country. This book will reaffirm the struggles, determination, pride and the hell that was wrought by our ancestors to provide a decent life for their family. Bless them and remember their contribution to what we have now.

Rather listen to the Lewis trilogy

I liked the voice of Peter Forbes, the Gaelic, the Scottish and French accents. The story itself seems like an excerpt from the Lewis trilogy, which I strongly recommend.
