Coffin Road by Peter May

ali-coffin-roadI’m a bit of a sucker for a murder mystery and this one especially because it is set on the beautiful Isle of Harris off Scotland’s west coast. Peter May has written a number of stories set on the Outer Hebrides including the atmospheric Lewis Trilogy. What also makes a murder mystery enjoyable is the subplot which in this case is about bees, the effect that certain pesticides have on them and the fight to have this research recognised. So, as well as being transported back to my homeland, this novel educated me on why we need to look after our bees.
