A prodigious Chinese swimmer kills himself on the eve of the Beijing Olympics. Days later, a champion weightlifter suffers a fatal heart attack prior to competition.

Detective Li Yan senses a conspiracy surrounding the fatalities, and finds a female athlete willing to talk. But she will only trust one person: Li's fiancee, Margaret Campbell.

When Campbell's contact herself vanishes, the gun is fired on a race against time. And Li must now outrun, and outwit, an enemy bent on pushing him beyond endurance.

Described by Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as an ‘outstanding example of Scotland's rich literary talent’, Peter May was already one of Scotland’s most prolific television dramatists when he embarked on a career as a novelist. Beginning with his series of ‘China Thrillers’ he has gone on to write the cold-case ‘Enzo Files’ (set in France, where the author now lives) and his bestselling ‘Lewis Trilogy’, set in the Hebrides as well as various acclaimed stand-alone novels, including Entry Island.

Read an exclusive introduction to Cast Iron by author Peter May in which the author discusses the locations and characters that inspired the final book in the Enzo series.
