Brodie has much on his mind as the story progresses and his personal situation is appalling to imagine, but he never gives up. Melting ice has stopped the warming effect of the Gulf Stream, resulting in northern Europe, including Scotland, being hit by raging blizzards and ice storms.

It’s a difficult story to sum up and also a hard book to rate as I had such mixed feelings about the various elements here. Initially reluctant, he eventually does go which begins the reader’s initiation into possibilities of future travel and its dangers. He has undertaken to create, not only an unusual-for-him one-off, but an entirely new, future world! Three months earlier, award-winning Scottish Herald investigative journalist, Charles Younger, the bane of corrupt politicians, went missing near Loch Leven.

The setting is the wild and cold highlands of Scotland, made even wilder and colder due to the climate change. It is a reporter from The Herald who is identified as the body in the ice cave, and Brodie sets off to investigate, with connections from his own dark past adding to his reasons to want to visit Kinlochleven. May ha la grandissima qualità di non annegare di chiacchere inutili i suoi romanzi-gialli, tirando dritto al punto, e concedendosi spazio in più solo per la descrizione della natura e dell'ambiente, che riesce sempre a restituire con tinte mozzafiato.

An immensely satisfying and enjoyable read and it will stay with me for a long time to come, I’m sure. I would like to thank both Netgalley and Quercus books for supplying a copy of this novel in exchange for an honest review.I subsequently dabbled with some of the author’s other books and found that none matched the heights May achieved with the Lewis books. In 2003 I read Firemaker, the first thriller by Peter May, and although the details are a bit fuzzy, I still remember how impressed I was with this book. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.
