From the twelve-million copy bestselling author of the Lewis trilogy comes a chilling new mystery set in the isolated Scottish Highlands.


A young meteorologist checking a mountain top weather station in Kinlochleven discovers the body of a missing man entombed in ice.


Cameron Brodie, a Glasgow detective, sets out on a hazardous journey to the isolated and ice-bound village. He has his own reasons for wanting to investigate a murder case so far from his beat.


Brodie must face up to the ghosts of his past and to a killer determined to bury forever the chilling secret that his investigation threatens to expose.

Set against a backdrop of a frighteningly plausible near-future, A WINTER GRAVE is Peter May at his best.

S Magazine, Sunday Express
A Winter Grave is timely and chilling, painting a disturbing picture of the future . . . it's a meticulously researched thriller with gravitas that grips from the first page . . . May's first novel in two years is among the best he's written.
May has created a chilling believable near future . . . an atmospheric locked room mystery . . . this is as chilling as much for May's vision of where the we're heading as for the body count.
Scots Mag
