I really liked the first 2 mysteries in this series. May's characters are interesting and his sense of place is first-rate. However, this story is a let-down. I feel like he recycled some of the plot devices from the previous stories. Definitely read the first two (The Blackhouse and The Lewis Man). The depictions of the Scottish islands and the lives of the on those islands will remain long after the details of the mysteries fade.
