Description

When a senior Edinburgh civil servant spectacularly takes his own life in Kinloch harbour, DCI Jim Daley comes face to face with the murky world of politics. To add to his woes, two local drug dealers lie dead, ritually assassinated. It’s clear that dark forces are at work in the town. With his boss under investigation, his marriage hanging on by a thread, and his sidekick DS Scott wrestling with his own demons, Daley’s world is in meltdown. When strange lights appear in the sky over Kinloch, it becomes clear that the townsfolk are not the only people at risk. The fate of nations is at stake. Jim Daley must face his worst fears as tragedy strikes. This is not just about a successful investigation, it’s about survival.

Publisher Review

'Touches of dark humour, multi-layered and compelling' - Daily Record 'The right amount of authenticity ... gritty writing ... most memorable' - Herald 'Has the ability to give even the least important person in the plot character and the skill to tell a good tale' - Scots Magazine 'Soon to be mentioned in the same breath as authors such as Alex Gray, Denise Mina and Stuart Macbride ... very impressive' - Ian Baillie, Lennox Herald; 'If you thought Denzil Meyrick's previous book, The Last Witness was thrilling, this one is truly mesmerising... completely captivating... DCI Daley is shaping up to be the West Coast's answer to Edinburgh's Rebus' - Scottish Home & Country; 'simultaneously dark and funny' - Scottish Field
