Enhance your purchase
When rich American hotelier Alice Wenger arrives in Kinloch, some eyebrows are raised and memories are rekindled. Meanwhile, the secretive Doig family live a solitary existence on a remote part of the Kintyre peninsula, without even the basic amenities of modern life.
After the family's patriarch plummets to his death, secrets of stolen gold, whisky smuggling, shipwrecks and brutal events going back decades begin to emerge.
With emotions running high in Kinloch Police Office, the team must put aside their own problems and get to the bottom of a sickening crime.
'Scotland's best new crime writer.' – Waterstones

'Tragic incidents and mysterious goings-on keep us eagerly turning the pages. And of course there’s a dose of irreverent humour…the historical scenes are beautifully realised from the weather through to the visceral horrors that unfold. … You will be horrified and fascinated in equal measure. There’s no escaping the past, and no escaping family ties. Secrets will always out….Deftly done'-- Louis Fairbairn ― CrimeBookGirl.com
'A unique, atmospheric and all-consuming thriller ... DS Scott is "pure dead brilliant”, at times laugh out loud. Meyrick brings his usual skilful storytelling and gives us another engrossing page-turner'― Journal of the Law Society of Scotland
'Absorbing… Meyrick’s humorous dialogue set this book apart – he has an ability to inject wit into police proceedings'― Scottish Field

'I discovered the most amazing series during lockdown #DCIDaley by Denzil Meyrick ... I cannot recommend them enough. Having devoured all the crime series in the shop & wanting something meaty but funny this just hit the spot. Read them you will love them. Eight in series'-- Waterstones bookseller, Horsham
'With Meyrick it's visceral and this one is no exception from its chillingly atmospheric prologue to the epilogue's final, deadpan line. Will chime with crime connoisseurs'― Sunday Post
'Meyrick proves once again that rural policing can be every bit as captivating, and gritty, as its urban equivalent’― Herald
'The new novel is a rich broth... a fine example of tartan noir, superior to most of the genre... moments of chilling horror... with a fine twist in the tail'-- Allan Massie ― Scotsman
'As an ex detective, ex procurator fiscal depute and now an advocate, I was reluctant to buy another Scottish crime series. I was tired of the plastic and sanitised fictional detectives portrayed in crime novels set in Scotland, where clearly the author had no idea of the workings of the Scottish police or legal system.
I should have had no such fears with regards to Mr Meyrick's DCI Daley novels. I have now read all the books in the series and love the characters. I feel I have even worked with some of them. I am always sad when I come to the end of his books. It’s like being separated from friends. I am looking forward to meeting up with them again in his next novel Jeremiah's Bell'-- Joe Cahill, Advocate
'A corker! More twists and turns than a Kintyre road'-- Douglas Skelton

'Dark, gutsy, and smirky Tartan Noir… wonderful storytelling, Jeremiah’s Bell continues the series in fine style'― LoveReading.co.uk
'Denzil Meyrick’s DCI Daley series covers the named detective in the fictional town of Kinloch…The novels are suitably dark and unfold slowly'― CityWire - Wealth Management Magazine

I am very lucky to live in the area of Kinloch and can very much picture in my mind's eye the streets and hotels in the book. This series of stories would make a fabulous tv series, the scenery alone would be fabulous but to see and hear the characters literally come to life would be amazing.
You won't be disappointed by this book, settle into a comfy chair, take a deep breath, turn the page, transport yourself to Kinloch and thoroughly enjoy your visit to the Wee Toon. You are welcome. Enjoy.
Now of course I have a long wait until next year for the new book.
Now I find myself hoping and waiting for the next one in the series.
If you're new to this series, buy the whole lot, start at the beginning and lose yourself in the wee gem that is Kinloch!
More twists and turns in the plot than the road to Kinloch.
During this wretched pandemic it has been lovely to escape to the dark world that Brian and Jim inhabit.
Rankin's "Rebus" engenders tours around the Capital. I think I might enjoy a Kinloch "Daley Dally"! Meet at the Douglas Arms, check out the lifeboat station, bracing walk up the hills and back along the beach. Then regaled with Hamish's tales over a wee dram in the newly refurbished County Hotel.
Great story - thoroughly enjoyed it!
