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.

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 .

Superb narration!

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

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.

disappointing

I've loved every one of this series and couldn't wait to start this book. however, I never really got into it. I found Brian Scott less endearing than before, in fact I think he was just a bit too full on, almost as if the author was trying to test our shock levels! and as for Liz! Well I just got annoyed listening to her being so obnoxious. I was hoping Jim would stand up to her, instead of just taking her vitriol! I really thought that this time, he'd stop just putting up with her, and we wouldn't have to hear of her again.

I love David Monteith's narration, but just felt at times, the gutteral voices and foul language were a bit too much.

A disappointment as I've loved every one of Denzil Meyrick's books up till now.

Excellent

I really enjoyed this book. The story line was really good, it kept me guessing and even made me laugh out loud in places. The narrator is excellent even with my impaired hearing I fully understand his accents. Looking forward to the next book.
