Summary

In the present, an old fisherman is found dead by the shoreline and a stranger with a mission moves into a shabby Kinloch flat.

Meanwhile, D.C.I. Jim Daley is trying to help Brian Scott stay sober, and the good people of Kinloch are still mourning the death of one of their own.

As past and present collide, Daley finds himself face to face with old friends and foes. Memories can only last as long as those who keep them, and ghosts will not be silenced.

Shadows from the past and murder in the present

I bought the audio version of this book and, as anticipated, the narration throughout is superb. Having read and listened to this series, I much prefer the audio version because it adds a whole different dimension to the story and characters.

I’ve waited eagerly every June for the next in the series and picked up the additional short stories. I’ve yet to be disappointed by the quality of the plotting and the development of the characters. Denzil Meyrick is one of a handful of authors who has maintained a series exceptionally well; no plot contrivances for convenience or formulaic writing. Every one is a winner.

There are echoes from book 9 in which one of the recurring characters died. Although this works well as a stand alone, it’s a series which really does work best if read in order. I’ve grown to love the central characters. Jim Daley and His DS, Scott. Both have demons. But they’re not held down by the baggage and they’re distinctly different characters. They play off one another, with Scott’s gruff and dark humour along with malapropisms making him feel real. I have mental pictures of every character and the location.

This tale is a real mix of people from the past, themes from earlier stories and both Daley and Scott trying to rebalance and move on with their lives. Their respective wives are central to the character development and unusually, the personal side of the tale doesn’t detract from the crime story. I feel a part of this strange little Kinloch community; it takes a talented writer to create a seemingly real world for readers to invest in. Meyrick has done it. This is a cracking addition to the series and won’t disappoint.

Simply Brilliant


Another cracker by Denzil Meyrick. DCI Daley along with his hilarious and brave sidekick DS Brian Scott discover that their past has arrived in Kinloch. Wonderful characters, brilliant storyline and a good helping of 'Brianisms', what more do you need. Roll on Book 11.

As always this book has been brought to life by David Monteath's excellent narration.

Another great book from Denzil Meyrick and excellent narration by David Monteath. Like mince ‘n’ tatties, they complement each other perfectly!

Excellent

Excellent as usual. Denzil Meyrick has done it again. Such a fabulous plot, I was gripped from the first chapter. I absolutely love Kinloch and its' residents, I feel as though I know them all and I didn't want the book to end. Cannot wait for the next in the series .

One of the best

This story is excellent. Humour, gallows type at times, horror crime, Glaswegian culture and wit combined with excellent portrayal of the characters by the narrator. Great writing and one to beat.

One of the best Scottish crime clan

From first hearing whiskey in small glasses I was a fan of both author and reader
During Covid the next of this series was something I longed for. The only disappointment is having to wait for the next

Amazing as always

Another excellent book in this fantastic series. This one focuses more of DS Brian Scott who is battling his alcohol addiction and his struggles are brilliantly and realistically observed. We go right back to when Scott was a beat bobby and his entry to CID, and the past comes back to haunt him.

The book is tough to read in places but is interspersed with the humour I have come to love with this series. Daley and Scott, and also Hamish seem like old friends to me now and I am always happy to catch up with their lives. Kinloch is, as always, beautifully portrayed. Can't wait for the next book!

Brilliantly narrated by David Monteath.

Only half way through !!!!

It is so good, I don’t want it to finish? I love the humour, story line and characters. I listen while I walk my dog and laugh out loud sometimes. Thank you for the stories, I am already looking forward to the next. ( I am still very sad about Annie! )
