Summary

Bringing together six short stories - two of which are previously unpublished - One Last Dram Before Midnight is perfect for fans of Denzil Meyrick.

These tales take us from Jim Daley's early days pounding the beat in Glasgow as a young constable to a lighthearted whisky smuggling romp involving Hamish and some ghostly pipers.

What a Treat!

I am not usually a fan of short stories but enjoyed these greatly. They were mostly quite long short stories and full of humour and pathos. Some had an unexpected twist and another was a fantastic sea buckling tale. I enjoyed humour and the good old Scottish language. Well done Mr Meyrick - I look forward to your next offering.

5 stars all round.

Brilliant mix of stories, thoroughly enjoyed them all. Great idea bringing in Daley's earlier background with some of the other characters met in previous books.

Audio level too low

The audio on this seemed very quiet. Had to turn it up to full. I prefer a single storyline rather than short stories. Having said that, they were still entertaining.

enjoyed stories. volume poor

I have listened to to this authors books before and really enjoy them. This one was spoiled by the poor volume. I tried listening on both my mp3 player with speaker and my tablet but it was still low. Finished by listening with headphones.

Great book but very hard to hear

I have enjoyed all the books on this series but this one is set on a very low volume compared to the others? Despite having the volume turned right up I just couldn’t listen in the car. Narrator is excellent as usual but let down by the very poor sound. I missed lots of bits so gave up in the end. Shame as the bits I did hear were good but as they were short stories I kept missing too much

I loved this book

I loved this book so much that I didn't want to reach the end. It was nice to have a mix of stories but I wish the book had been longer. The narration was excellent.

A mixed bag of enjoyable short stories.

A selection of short stories which are actually quite long featuring characters from the pen of Denzil Meyrick. They contain humour, nostalgia and are told in my native Scottish language. Overall they kept me occupied while doing household chores but I must confess I prefer the authors longer books and sadly I've listened to all that audible has :(

I found the sound level perfect as was the narration.

never laughed so much x<br /><br />

love the way the story evolves with so much humour. the narrator is good, but could improve his women's repatoir.

Neat addition

Loved this. Adds to the backstories but also an entertaining selection of stand alone tales.
