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.

    "Another triumph"

    Plot hauls the reader in. Characters are gritty, colourful and believable. My favourite narrator at his best in D. Meyrick books.

    "Lived up to my expectations"

    Once again, this book has impressed me as much as the previous two books in the series. I will await the fourth book with anticipation and hope it won't be too long a wait.

    The narration was as outstanding as ever. The incredible versatility of the reader is a genuine treat which greatly enhances the story. I will go as far as to say that David Monteath is the best narrator I have heard - and I have listened to many, many books!

    "Brilliant crime novel"

    I have loved all three of the DCI Daley audio novels. The stories are fast paced and keep you guessing. I love the relationship between Daley and his sergeant. There is warmth and humour within the characters. The books are brilliantly narrated. David Monteath is the best narrator I have heard. All I can say is, please put more of the DCI Daley novels on audio.

    "Excellent narrator"

    I enjoyed this book but I found some aspects annoying. I didn't think the main character's domestic situation was dealt with very well, it wasn't believable. It seemed to lack the emotional intensity that would have been present in those circumstances. In particular the decision to take his wife back with her child was badly written and lacked depth.

    I found the plot rather predictable and it was obvious who would end up dead and who posed the threat. I don't think this was as good as the previous books but it was still a good book and the narrator was excellent.
