The Chessmen by Peter May – Book Review #16
The Chessmen is the third book in Peter May’s Lewis trilogy. I enjoy Peter May’s writing and I’m going to start collecting his other books to add to my, already huge, to be read list!
Here’s the blurb from Goodreads:
Fin Macleod, now head of security on a privately owned Lewis estate, is charged with investigating a spate of illegal game-hunting taking place on the island. This mission reunites him with Whistler Macaskill—a local poacher, Fin’s teenage intimate, and possessor of a long-buried secret. But when this reunion takes a violent, sinister turn, Fin realizes that revealing the truth could destroy the future.
I think The Chessmen was my favourite of the three books in this series. As with the previous books, there are different timelines, however, it’s done in a way that’s not annoying!
I liked learning more about Fin’s early life and the bond that was forged with Whistler.
I didn’t much like a part of the ending, but I can’t say why because I don’t want to spoil it, suffice to say, I’d have enjoyed the book even more if there had been a different, happier ending for Donald.
