This story is more about his childhood and the people in it than the actual murder itself. The characters are quite believable and it is their stories that make the book engrossing. That, and I have always been fascinated by Scotland and its atmospheric islands. The setting adds immensely to the story, especially the integral part the annual guga catching trips play.
It is a story of coming home and the changes occurring on the island and in Fin himself. Also how his past bleeds into the present.
The resolution of the crime is very sad and important to Fin and I felt very satisfied by the last page.
