DCI Jim Daley is sent from the city to investigate a murder after the body of a woman is washed up on an idyllic beach on the West Coast of Scotland.

Loved this first novel by Denzil Meyrick. Captures the atmosphere of Kinloch (Campbeltown) very well.
Great story building up to an exciting finale. Eexcellent audio by David Monteath. I feel I might bump into Dailey while strolling through the streets of Campbeltown.!!! Well done Denzil.
Looking forward toto "The Last Witness"

The Isle of Lewis is the most desolate and harshly beautiful place in Scotland. When a bloody murder on the island bears the hallmarks of a similar slaying in Edinburgh, police detective Fin Macleod is dispatched north to investigate. Since Fin himself was raised on the island, the investigation represents not only a journey home but a voyage into his past. Each year twelve island men sail out to a remote and treacherous rock called An Sgeir on a perilous quest to slaughter nesting seabirds.

Gripping story. Found it very difficult to put down. Reminded me of situations and people from school days within a remote rural situation.
