About the Author:

Peter May was born and raised in Scotland. He was an award-winning journalist at the age of twenty-one and a published novelist at twenty-six. When his first book was adapted as a major drama series for the BCC, he quit journalism and during the high-octane fifteen years that followed, became one of Scotland's most successful television dramatists. He created three prime-time drama series, presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland as script editor and producer, and worked on more than 1,000 episodes of ratings-topping drama before deciding to leave television to return to his first love, writing novels. He has won several literature awards in France, received the USA's Barry Award for The Blackhouse, the first in his internationally bestselling Lewis Trilogy; and in 2014 was awarded the ITV Specsavers Crime Thriller Book Club Best Read of the Year award for Entry Island. Peter now lives in South-West France with his wife, writer Janice Hally.

Review:

"Shades of The Bourne Identity abound... A horrific murder at a remote lighthouse and a young teen pursing the truth behind her father's research add heft to a headily complex tale that's part eco-thriller, part ode to familial love."― Seattle Review of Books

"a well-paced atmospheric story that catches the reader's attention from the opening scene"―Deadly Pleasures Magazine

"Like Peter May's other Outer Hebridean mysteries, Coffin Road is a tense, intriguing mystery set against a broody backdrop that lends an otherworldly eeriness to the story at hand."
Bloggin' Bout Books


"May's lyrical prose brings full color to the scenery, and the narrative intrigues from start to finish as the three arcs intertwine and race to a final showdown. Coffin Road is an atmospheric thriller that delves into issues of identity, sacrifice and the greater good."―Shelf Awareness (Starred Review)

"May keeps the stories clear and the pace fast, with the Hebrides atmosphere serving as a wild, unpredictable fourth character. Flat-out fantastic."
Booklist (Starred Review)


"This intense, complex mystery will satisfy especially those who are environmentally conscious, but overall, this is one bang-up read."
Library Journal (Starred Review)


"May evokes his native Scotland as ruggedly dangerous, his well-drawn characters equally so."―Publishers Weekly

"An eminently satisfying, multilayered mystery populated with sharply drawn characters . . . The many threads of the story play out against a landscape that May, a native Scot, renders vividly. His images capture the capricious play of light and weather across the sea and the moors, matching the surprises in his tale."―Kirkus Reviews

"An extremely chilling tale. From a man with memory loss, to a young girl dealing with the loss of her father, to a tale of a policeman unmasking the past, readers will have to pay close attention so they don't lose track of the amazing web May has created."―Suspense Magazine

"May is a master storyteller who deftly weaves the threads into a magnificent tapestry... A stand alone thriller that will grip you from the first page."―BookPeople, Austin, TX

"Peter May is on a roll . . . [Coffin Road] is a clever, twisty eco-thriller in the mode of Le Carré's The Constant Gardener."
John O'Connell, The Guardian


"A consummately skilled and original storyteller, Coffin Road fully showcases novelist Peter May's total mastery of the mystery/suspense genre."―Midwest Book Review

"An excellent thriller . . . the pace and good writing swept me onwards."
Amy Myers, Shots Magazine


"The bestselling [Peter May] returns to the Outer Hebrides . . . Another cracking story from a writer at the height of his powers."
Charlotte Heathcote, The Daily Express


"This is a first-rate page turner!"―John Teel, Marshall University for the Popular Culture Association

Praise for Peter May
"Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth."
Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times
