Publisher's Summary

The third installment in the best-selling DCI Daley series, packed with accurate police procedure and gritty, dark humour. The best of Scottish crime.

When a senior Edinburgh civil servant spectacularly takes his own life in Kinloch harbour, DCI Jim Daley comes face to face with the murky world of politics. To add to his woes, two local drug dealers lie dead, ritually assassinated. It's clear that dark forces are at work in the town. With his boss under investigation, his marriage hanging on by a thread, and his sidekick, DS Scott, wrestling with his own demons, Daley's world is in meltdown.

When strange lights appear in the sky over Kinloch, it becomes clear that the townsfolk are not the only people at risk. The fate of nations is at stake. Jim Daley must face his worst fears as tragedy strikes. This is not just about a successful investigation; it's about survival.

    "Fantastic!"

    A fantastic story from beginning to end. Land and seascapes brought to life with poetic description. Absolutely brilliant.

    "Great end of a trilogy"

    This being the last book of the trilogy was excellent. The whole serious was a great read and I really felt connected to the characters. The narrator however was fantastic. His voice really put me in the midst of the story. Loved auld Angus too

    Story
    "Enjoyable but some lazy shortcuts"
    What did you like best about Dark Suits and Sad Songs? What did you like least?

    The story tumbles along, but some of the premises are so silly that they detract from the enjoyment. Including at least one of the 'beanies' - a corrupt policemen taking time out to tell everyone how clever he is before he shots them that people are rescued.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Denzil Meyrick again?

    ±Yes


    Which character – as performed by David Monteath – was your favourite?

    Hamish


    Did Dark Suits and Sad Songs inspire you to do anything?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    A little editing and some corrections of technical matter would have mede this a bette book
