The trilogy begun with The Blackhouse continues in The Lewis Man: as Fin Macleod returns in an ingenious crime thriller about memory and murder. 

A man with no name. 

An unidentified corpse is recovered from a Lewis peat bog; the only clue to its identity being a DNA sibling match to a local farmer.

A man with no memory. 

But this islander, Tormod Macdonald - now an elderly man suffering from dementia - has always claimed to be an only child.

A man with no choice. 

When Tormod's family approach Fin Macleod for help, Fin feels duty-bound to solve the mystery.
