A D.C.I. Daley Thriller
2505 in stockBuy E-book
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'
Meyrick proves once again that rural policing can be every bit as captivating, and gritty, as its urban equivalent’
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'
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'
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'
