On a Scottish mountain Addie is checking the weather station the weather station for the latest readings.

In November 2051, a young meteorologist is checking her weather station in the western Scottish Highlands when she comes across a body in a patch of ice in a corrie. In 2014 Entry Island won both the Scottish Crime Novel of the Year and a CWA Dagger as the ITV Crime Thriller Book Club Best Read of the Year.

Peter May is a multi-award-winning novelist, and his prolific output in the crime genre has seen him sell over two million books in the UK alone, as well as attracting considerable admiration overseas. He also hopes to reconcile with his estranged daughter and explain a misunderstanding that has caused her hatred. Brodie seeks to find his estranged daughter and make things right while solving a dissapeance in the northern climes of Scotland. Cameron has personal reasons for wanting to take on the case and his backstory is revealed in flashbacks that begin in 2021. Vast areas of the world are under water or not habitable because of excessive heat due to the constant neglect of climate warnings.

I was confused and found that I wasn’t enjoying this tale much at all - I was already considering giving up on it.Ultimately the book which was supposed to be a page turner, ended up being heavy and failed to leave a real impact.

A young meteorologist checking a mountain top weather station in Kinlochleven discovers the body of a missing man entombed in ice. In 2003 I read Firemaker, the first thriller by Peter May, and although the details are a bit fuzzy, I still remember how impressed I was with this book. So to what to make of a story that’s such a mix of parts, some that drew me in and others that pushed me away?

He and his best friend Tiny had been friends since they were young and couldn't be closer, always having each other's backs. But here in Scotland, a body has been found frozen in the ice near Loch Leven, that of one Charles Younger, an investigative journalist with the Scottish Herald who had been reported missing three months earlier, and Detective Inspector Cameron Brodie volunteers to travel there along with the doctor who will do the post mortem, Dr Sita Roy. Alongside an absorbing and action-packed crime story, and the depiction of the potential impacts of climate change on the world, is Inspector Cameron Brodie’s deeply personal story, told through flashbacks to 2023.
