Cast Iron - The Enzo Files (Paperback)Peter May (author)
- In stock online
It is dark now and another life as passed.
Everything must someday come to an end.
In 1989, a killer dumped the body of twenty-year-old Lucie Martin into a picturesque lake in the West of France.
Fourteen years later, during a summer heatwave, a drought exposed her remains - bleached bones amid the scorched mud and slime. No one was ever convicted of her murder. But now, forensic expert Enzo Macleod is reviewing this stone cold case - the toughest of those he has been challenged to solve.
Yet when Enzo finds a flaw in the original evidence surrounding Lucie's murder, he opens a Pandora's box that not only raises old ghosts but endangers his entire family.
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.
