Introducing A Large Measure of Snow by Denzil Meyrick

  01 Oct '20   |  Posted by: Birlinn

A Large Measure of Snow is the new short novel from Denzil Meyrick, author of the globally bestselling DCI Daley detective series. A beautiful hardback, it is an atmospheric wintry read and a perfect Christmas gift.

To celebrate the launch, we are delighted to bring you a short video revealing the inspiration behind the novel. In this exclusive video, Meyrick reflects upon the Campbeltown of the 1960s, the fishing communities which called it home, and why now is the perfect time to delve into this world.

A Large Measure of Snow is the first of the ‘Tales from Kinloch’, stories that are independent of the Daley series but open intriguing new corners of its world and feature some of its most memorable characters. Meyrick’s novels have won critical acclaim for their authentic depiction of place and their cracking dialogue. Striking out of hardboiled crime-thriller mode and into in the fine tradition of Compton Mackenzie and Neil Munro, this new tale promises that signature warmth and humour in abundance.
