I am a huge Peter May fan. I’ve read his Lewis trilogy at least three times. Bought his books full price on Kindle (which I never do) then bought the paper back when it come out and read it too. I loved Entry Island too. I have given the books as presents to friends and family and recommended far and wide. But I hadn’t yet read his Enzo series set in France. So I bought it for the holidays.
I’ve just read the first one in the series. And I have a problem. I want to read them all now. So now trying very hard not to download them. As I’ve got plenty of books still to read before the end of the holiday. But it’s tempting.
I love Peter May’ s style of writing. The research he puts into every book. This one was a slow starter for me maybe as I adapted from Lewis to France. I was the same with Entry Island when it was initially in Canada. But I was very soon drawn in. From teenage years on we had our holidays in France and always ended in Paris. It was areas I knew but even if I hadn’t the plot of an unsolved murder intrigued me. The main character has to firstly work out if he is dealing with a missing person case or murder. This is done in the first 20% of the book. This left me wondering how it was going to unfold. But it unfolds in a macbre way. The body is not in one place it’s cut into several pieces and buried in various locations across France. Why?
Another great book by Peter May my only issue is trying not to download the second. It’s set in the wine region of France….
