Post Script: I’ll Keep You Safe – Peter May

I'll Keep You Safe

I’ll Keep You Safe

Niamh and Ruairidh Macfarlane co-own the Hebridean company Ranish Tweed. On a business trip to Paris to promote their luxury brand, Niamh learns of Ruairidh’s affair, and then looks on as he and his lover are killed by a car bomb. She returns home to Lewis, bereft.


Niamh begins to look back on her life with Ruairidh, desperate to identify anyone who may have held a grudge against him. The French police, meanwhile, have ruled out terrorism, and ruled in murder – and sent Detective Sylvie Braque to shadow their prime suspect: Niamh.


As one woman works back through her memories, and the other moves forward with her investigation, the two draw ever closer to a deadly enemy with their own, murderous, designs.



My View:

Another evocative read by Peter May. Peter is a skilful wordsmith, his ability to paint a country side (in this instance two very different landscapes- Paris and The Isle of Lewis) is worthy of applause; majestic, brooding, isolated, stormy, threatening, deadly V frenetic, busy, trendy, deadly.  (I think Peter’s writing influenced my sister in laws choice of recent holiday destinations – Scotland and the Orkneys and Paris made it on to her itinerary.)


Another great read, Peter May does not disappoint.
