    A long time ago I read Whiskey from Small Glasses, giving it five stars As I enjoyed Whiskey from Small Glasses so much of course I wanted to read Well of the Winds and I must say Denzil Meyrick writes his stories so well I am excited to see what Denzil will write next As the World War Two nears the end a man is stabbed to death I was caught up in this thriller On the Gairsay, an island off the coast of Kintyre Malcolm McAuley is a postman As the fellow islanders were talking advantage of online shopping he delivered mainly ...

    I have been looking forward to reading this novel and while it has taken me a while to get there it has been worth the wait.I like to see authors step out of their comfort zone and try something different so Well of the Winds is a brave attempt It basically has two plotlines with the old investigation casting a long shadow into the present DS Brian Scott travels to the nearby island of Gairsay to investigate the sudden disappearance of the Bremner family In the meantime DCI Jim Daley is secretly given DI Urquart s diary from 1945 with his investigations into the Bremners It s not long before they lose the case to Special Branch and the spooks.I thoroughly enjoyed Well of the Winds and was hooked by both plotlines, turning the pages as fast as I could to find out what was coming next The 2 plots fit together seamlessly with just enough reveals at a time to provide good pace and keep the reader engrossed I m not so sure about the ending which seems to be a bit far fetched but Mr Meyrick, in his afterword, points the reader in the direction of a newspaper article which posits the same theory Mm, still not sure.Jim Daley...

    Another story for DCI Jim Daley and his long time colleague DS Brian Scott, senior detectives on the Kintyre coast of Scotland with Daley still reeling from the death of his lover in the previous book and Scott newly teetotal The plot relates back to 1945 and hence needs some characters in their 80s and 90s it gets very difficult to have credible stories relating...

    A book I really enjoyed This is the 5th in the DCI Daley series.set on the small island of Gairsay, this tale rages across Europe and takes in conspiracies, red herrings and spectualive history Mixing what is known with , what could ve happened The novel opens with a murder on the shoreline of Kinloch as the war nears its end in 1945.Fast forward to the present day and Daley is called in to investigate the disappearance of the Bremmer family, who are known in the area as Jewish escapees from the regime in Germany This is when the story takes off.I found the writing of the highest quality, the tale believable and the characters well rounded Mr Meyrick is a writer of considerable skill, who pulled me through this tale with enough twists and ...

    I had been waiting patiently on the latest D.C.I Daley novel being published and it was worth the wait It was a page turner from the start In my opinion this is the best book in the series so far It s far than a murder investigation and I simply loved the historical element to this We find Jim Daley rather withdrawn as he is suffering both from the breakdown of his marriage and the death of DC Mary Dunn However we see D.S Brian Scott a changed man as he has given up the demon drink He takes a much prominent role this time and his down to earth humour and warm personality are allowed to shine The novel begins in 1945 with a man being murdered on the shore near Kinloch The dark deeds of the past cast a shadow on present day events On the island of Gairsay a local family, the Bremners, simply disappear Brian Scott finds himself and a local DC on the boat to Gairsay to investigate He makes a shocking discovery at the Bremner s cottage which links to wartime secrets I particularly like the way the events move effortlessly between past and present There are two interconnecting strands to this terrific tale with plenty of plot twists and surprises to make you gasp oh no along the way Throw into this marvellous mix Secret Service agents with links to those in high places,officers from the Special Branch an...

    Denzil Meyrick s series of crime novels featuring DCI Jim Daley and set in Scotland has been excellent from book 1 but in this fifth instalment he takes the standard to a higher level still In the previous book Daley lost his girl friend and a pall of depression hangs over him as he comes to terms with losing Mary and being separated from his son, a situation which throwing himself into his work can...

    A family goes missing on the Scottish Island of Gairsay and DCI Daley, DS Scott and Chief Superintendant Symington are called in to help the local volunteer policeman find any clues as to where they may have gone Whilst in the house Scott discovers a hidden cellar and, all of a sudden, the missing Bremner family s secrets open a can of worms that have consequences reaching out across Europe.I have enjoyed the previous stories involving Scott and Daley and, although I don t usually like phonetic writing, I am a fan of the Brian Scott s lovely Scottish accent and down to earth attitude Events in the last novel mean that this one spends a little less time on Daley and on Scott and Symington which isn t a bad thing at all as Scott in particular is a great character with an interesting personality to get to know alongside the story of th...
