Summary
In the Outer Hebrides, newly divorced former Edinburgh cop Fin Macleod has returned to his hometown on the Isle of Lewis. He's there to repair and restore his parents' old cottage (as well as himself), and ends up investigating an old murder when his first love, Marsaili, asks him to find out more about a newly discovered bog person (DNA proves that the murdered teen is related to Marsaili's father, even though the old man, who's suffering from dementia, has always claimed he was an only child). -- Description by Dawn Towery
