A D.C.I. Daley Thriller
3171 in stock
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'

A corker! More twists and turns than a Kintyre road'
Slipping back into Meyrick's world is a criminal joy ... HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!'
Michael J Malone
Crime, humour, intrigue and atmosphere, and that was just the first page!'
What a cracking series! As a crime writer, the highest complement I can give is to say I've yet to work out an ending ...'
Dark, gutsy, and smirky Tartan Noir… wonderful storytelling, Jeremiah’s Bell continues the series in fine style'
