Today we are thrilled to launch Jeremiah’s Bell, the brand new novel in the DCI Daley series by bestselling author, Denzil Meyrick. He was joined in conversation with broadcaster Stuart Cosgrove, which you can watch on our YouTube channel here:

The images featured in the video are of the stunning Kintyre landscape, where Jeremiah’s Bell is set, and we were kindly permitted to use them by photographer Raymond Hosie. We hope they give you an insight into the atmosphere of the book and this beautiful part of Scotland. 

We would also like to thank Lorne MacDougall for the use of his music in this video. The piece featured is called Port Na Sgadan to Firdale, and the name Firdale may be familiar to Denzil’s eagle-eyed readers!

“Spellbinding … one of the UK’s most loved crime writers”

– The Sunday Post 

Jeremiah’s Bell is the eighth book in the DCI Daley series, which has gone from strength to strength and has enjoyed bestseller status. Here is a little more information about this newest book: 

Teenager Alison Doig disappeared from Kinloch over thirty years ago under mysterious circumstances. Her reclusive family still live in a remote part of the Kintyre peninsula, amidst rumours of wrecking, smuggling and barbaric cruelty. 

Now rich American hotelier Alice Wenger has arrived in town, determined to punish those who made her suffer in the past. But someone has vowed to keep hidden sins concealed for ever. 

Daley’s team must race against time to expose long-held secrets and shameful lies before there are any more victims. 

After studying politics, Denzil Meyrick worked as a police officer, distillery manager, freelance journalist, and company director. He is originally from Campbeltown in Argyll, but now lives with his wife Fiona on Loch Lomondside. 

Jeremiah’s Bell is out now and available to purchase from the Birlinn website and your local bookshop.
