Paging through new mysteries from across the Atlantic

I’ve spent a great deal of time in the past two weeks in bookstores across the U.K. In an Edinburgh bookstore, I picked up Peter May’s “The Blackhouse” (SilverOak, $24.95), the first in a trilogy set on the Isle of Lewis, “a brooding landscape” on the Outer Hebrides of Scotland. As I flipped through its pages, an elderly man standing near me said, “That’s better than butter.” I bought it immediately.
