The Black house- Peter May

Fin MacLeod is called to investigate a murdered committed on the Isle of Lewis which bears a strong resemblance to one that he was the lead investigator of in Edinburgh.  MacLeod grew up on the Isle of Lewis so the victim and many of the suspects are familiar to him.  This story alternates between the present when he is investigating the case and the past as he was growing up on the Island.  It aslo alternates between being written in the third person (in the present) and the first person (in the past).  I thought there were some really strong parts to this story but there were also some parts that were fairly weak and believeable.  I will keep an eye open for the second in the series and see how that follows
