One Last Dram Before Midnight

(2017)
(A book in the D.C.I. Daley series)
A collection of stories by

 
 
‘Absorbing . . . no run-of-the-mill tartan noir’-The Times

‘You’ll have a blast with these’ - Ian Rankin

‘A top talent, and one to be cherished' - Quintin Jardine

‘Spellbinding . . . one of the UK’s most loved crime writers’ - The Sunday Post

‘A compelling lead . . . satisfyingly twisted plot’ - Publishers Weekly

‘Touches of dark humour, multi-layered and compelling’ - Daily Record

‘Striking characters and shifting plots vibrate with energy’ - The Library Journal

‘Daley is a character complete with depths, currents and sudden changes of the Atlantic ocean that crashes against Kinloch’s harbour walls. The remote peninsula and the claustrophobic nature of small-town life are perfectly painted.’ - Scotland on Sunday

‘If you like Rankin, MacBride and Oswald, you’ll love Meyrick’ - The Sunday Mail

‘Energetic, wry, and full of jolts' - Waterstones

‘The right amount of authenticity . . . gritty writing . . . most memorable’ - The Herald

‘All three books have a strong sense of place, of city cops trying to fit in to a small, tightly knit rural environment’ - Russell Leadbetter, Evening Times

‘Meyrick has the ability to give even the least important person in the plot character and the skill to tell a good tale’ - Scots Magazine

‘Following in the tradition of great Scottish crime writers, Denzil Meyrick has turned out a cracking, tenacious thriller of a read. If you favour the authentic and credible, you are in safe hands’ - Lovereading

‘DCI Daley is shaping up to be the West Coast’s answer to Edinburgh’s Rebus’-Scottish Home and Country

‘Well crafted and engrossing . . . Meyrick is well into his rhythm’ - Journal of the Law Society of Scotland

Bringing together six short stories – two of which are previously unpublished – One Last Dram Before Midnight is the perfect Christmas gift for fans of Denzil Meyrick. These tales take us from DCI Jim Daley’s early days pounding the beat in Glasgow as a young constable to a light-hearted whisky smuggling romp involving Hamish and some ghostly pipers.

Includes four previously eBook exclusive stories: Single End, Two One Three, Dalintober Moon and Empty Nets and Promises

Genre: Mystery
