I have always enjoyed this authors writing and even though I wasn’t fully convinced by this novel I still enjoyed it.

Brodie must fast his past as well as a killer who is desperate to keep secret what George Younger’s investigations had threatened to expose. May paints a clear, poetic, and tragic picture of the wreck of a man he has become, but several things in his life are also about to change.

After a slightly rocky introduction, Brodie finds that he gets on quite well with police pathologist Dr Sita Roy, and both are relieved when their eVTOL (electric helicopter) sets them down safely during an ice storm, in the blacked-out village of Kinlochleven.

And, as yet another vicious storm closes off the village, together with all communications, Brodie will discover that Younger’s body won’t be the last! But, the author, having completed his creation, then takes our hands, so we can run together through his raging hurricane of how’s, why’s, when’s and what’s, coming out exhausted but the better for it. But evidence uncovered during his autopsy places the lives of both Brodie and Roy in extreme jeopardy.

Now, in “A Winter Grave,” he gives readers a glimpse into life in 2053 – the good and the bad, the different and the same. Detective Inspector Cameron Brodie has a lot on his mind when asked to volunteer to travel to the West Highlands to investigate a body found in the ice, to establish whether a crime had been committed. Sita Roy, find themselves the sole guests at the inappropriately named International Hotel, where Younger's body has been kept refrigerated in a cake cabinet.

Ferocious storms have become a frequent occurrence for the residents of Kinlochleven, resulting in power cuts and the loss of communications with the outside world for days at a time. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Quando lo metti giù è tutto un po' incredibile (il detective Brodie è dotato di occhialetti che manco James Bond, ma il giornalista Younger stenografa), ma va bene così. The mix allows the story to develop in the way it does but there’s also a degree of incongruity about the whole thing. He has also 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 .

But why, they both wonder, was a journalist with no hill-walking experience take the difficult trail up to a high peak? There are flashbacks to the present time that explore Brodie's early police career, his marriage, and family drama.
