save the bees
This is my first Peter May book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I have to wonder if people would really go to these lengths to save bees in the real world. I enjoyed the characters and the descriptions of the Hebrides Islands. I will definitely read more in the series.

Coffin Road by Peter May
The writer started off pretty good with what appeared to be a female laying unconscious on a sea bed or shore. the began to describe her breathing and the way she felt. She was not in a bad shape it appears.

My first displeasure was this big word trepidation. some words are OK to be used to bring light and phrases to story lines or plot but this word is definitely out! The writer could have used a more easy phrase like despair or fearful feeling.

" I have no sense of 4 Peter May " I had no idea what this line phrase really mean. I wonder if the writer had any clue to know if all his readers had knowledge of this phrase. I certainly didn't and I presumed others too. The writer could simply use this: no sense of time or day.

Meanwhile, homicide detective George Gunn makes the rough ocean crossing to a remote, sea-battered lighthouse on a rock in the northern Atlantic, twenty miles west of the Outer Hebrides, to investigate a brutal murder. Despite its isolation, the tiny island has seen its share of tragedy: more than a century earlier, three lighthouse keepers disappeared, never to be seen or heard from again

When one is distorted or not fully aware of there surroundings. How in God's earth one can tell of these simple things around one's self:" several inches of gold trapping light from the window to give it an inner glow" that's the line of a distorted individual. I think the writer is so wrong on this and needs to backtrack. Especially with pain in one's head.
my ratings is at least 3 out of 5
