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

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

‘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

‘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

D.C.I. Jim Daley is sent from the city to investigate a murder after the body of a woman is washed up on an idyllic beach on the West Coast of Scotland. Far away from urban resources, he finds himself a stranger in a close-knit community.

Love, betrayal, fear and death stalk the small town, as Daley investigates a case that becomes more deadly than he could possibly imagine, in this compelling novel infused with intrigue and dark humour.
