Friends since childhood, and lovers and business partners as adults, Niamh and Ruairidh are owners of a small Hebridean company, Ranish Tweed, that weaves its own very special version of Harris Tweed. Although it's a small company, their fabrics have become internationally sought-after as a niche brand in the world of fashion and haute couture.

But the threads of their relationship are beginning to fray. As they prepare for an important showing at the Première Vision fabric fair, held in Paris every year, Niamh accuses Ruairidh of having an affair with Irina, a Russian fashion designer they work with--a fight that ends with Ruairidh storming off and getting into Irina's car. Moments later, Niamh watches in horror as the car containing her life partner explodes in a ball of flame.

With Niamh a prime suspect in the murder, the Parisian police hound her even after she returns to Harris to bury the pitiful remains of her lover and business partner. Amid the grief and struggles that follow, she begins to suspect that things are not what they seem; and when there is an attempt on her life, she becomes convinced that what looked like a terrorist attack on her lover might be something more personal by far . . .

Peter May has written several standalone novels and three series: the award-winning China Thrillers, featuring Beijing detective Li Yan and American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell; the critically acclaimed Enzo Files, featuring Scottish forensic scientist Enzo Macleod, set in France; and the Lewis Trilogy (The Blackhouse, The Lewis Man, and The Chessmen), all three volumes of which are internationally bestselling novels.

One of Scotland's most prolific television dramatists, May garnered more than 1,000 credits over a decade and a half spent as scriptwriter and editor on prime-time British television. Before quitting TV to concentrate on writing novels, he was the creator of three major series, two of which were the highest rated in Scotland. May lives and writes in France.

Praise for I'll Keep You Safe

"May, the author of the critically acclaimed Lewis trilogy, set in the Outer Hebrides, mixes the rough Hebridean atmosphere with the glitter of Paris in his fourth stand-alone thriller."
Booklist

"Vibrant details of the weaving trade, the Gaelic language, and Hebrides culture."
Publishers Weekly

"Richly written . . . May's sense of place is as good as it gets."
Kirkus Reviews

"A story of love, revenge, dysfunctional families, overwhelming grief, and the feeling of helplessness that it causes, set against the background of the Hebrides...No one can create a more eloquently written suspense novel than Peter May. His prose evokes a setting that is almost mystical in its untamed beauty."
D.R. Meredith, New York Journal of Books

Praise for Peter May

"Peter May is a writer I'd follow to the ends of the earth."—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times

Praise for Coffin Road

"May's lyrical prose brings full color to the scenery, and the narrative intrigues from start to finish."
Shelf Awareness (Starred Review)

"May keeps the stories clear and the pace fast."—Booklist (Starred Review)

"May evokes his native Scotland as ruggedly dangerous, his well-drawn characters equally so."—Publishers Weekly
