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 [...]

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 [...]

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 back to the war, and I found this one too complex and sinister to be an easy read Certainly not a standard police procedural, but the [...]

A book I really enjoyed This is the 5th in the DCI Daley seriest 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 re [...]

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so far It s far than a murder investigation and I simply loved the historical element to this We find Jim Daley rather withdrawn as he is suffering both from the breakdown of his marriage and the death of DC Mary Dunn However we see D.S Brian Scott a changed man as he has given up the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 m [...]

Another twisty tale

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 partially alleviate The case is fascinating as it takes us from the present day back to 1945 and [...]

As the Second World nears its end, a man is stabbed to death on the shoreline of Kinloch, in the shadow of the great warships in the harbour Many years later, the postman on the Isle of Gairsay, a tiny island off the coast of Kintyre, discovers that the Bremner family have vanished from their farm There s a pot on the stove and food on the table, but of the Bremners there is no sign.When DCI Daley comes into possession of a journal written by his wartime predecessor in Kinloch, Inspector William [...]


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 [...]

The best of the series so far, with a message for today.

Fantastic Not just your average murder mystery, Once the Lovereading review is live I will post it x

This story starts with a particularly gruesome murder which took place in 1945, towards the end of World War II on the loch shore of Kinloch, with a dozen warships providing a backdrop to the scene It then switches to the present day when, on the tiny island of Gairsay, off the coast of Kintyre, Malcom McAuley, the postman calls at the farm of the Bremner family, only to find that there is no one there It has clearly been an unplanned departure because there is freshly cooked food on the table, [...]

In 1945 a policeman is murdered by the side of a loch on the small island of Gairsay The policeman, William Urquhart leaves behind a journal which is found in the present by DCI Daley who is investigating the mysterious case of a family missing from their home So opens a story which moves seamlessly back and forth between the last days of the Second World War and the present day This is the latest in the DCI Daley series and although I had not read any of the other titles found that this was not [...]

Having not read any of the previous DCI Daley novels it s a little difficult to put this into context This is not really an issue as any relevant backstory is provided, but it still does not really inspire one to read any A family, the Bremners, having run a farm on a remote Scottish island since the original Bremners fled as Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany, have disappeared The police, while searching the house, then find a horde of documents in the cellar, detailing the apparent transfers v [...]

A fantastic British thriller I thoroughly enjoyed reading my first D.C.I Daley investigation set on the fictional island of Gairsay which is actually the Isle of Gigha, west of Kintyre The story constantly weaves its way back to the end of the 2nd World War and forward to present day All the characters are very convincing and life like although it did annoy me slightly that the dialogue in the Scottish brogue was written phonetically I thought it unnecessary The Scottish police are baffled by th [...]

In this continuation of the DCI Daley series, much of the action takes place on the Isle of Gairsay just offshore from Kinloch A family mysteriously disappears, and the subsequent investigation uncovers ties to an earlier investigation that happened in Kinloch as World War II was winding down Daley is pretty much a broken man at this point, but he becomes intrigued by the journal of Inspector William Urquhart, the man who investigated the earlier WWII murders DS Scott and Chief Superintendent Ca [...]

I m delighted we re back on track with the latest Jim Daley novel I didn t enjoy the Rat Stone Serenade as much as the others in the series In the Well o the Winds a grieving Jim Daley is drawn into a complex mystery which is set at the end of World War 2 and modern day I thought this was a very clever novel as it seamlessly went from one period of time to another and much of what Denzil Meyrick writes about has some grounding in fact Like many others before me, I made a pilgrimage to Campbeltow [...]

For me, this only just scraped a three because I suspect this lacked much in the way of stringent editorial input Chapter 2 began with a typo, three characters Scott, Potts and Watts appeared together on page 37 and the continual chopping between then and now not only made it difficult to keep hold of what was going on but taught me a valuable lesson, since it s a trait I m too frequently guilty of.Additionally in several places it was hard to know who was speaking.That said, the dialogue was a [...]

More intrigue in KinlochThe cast of characters seems even larger than usual, as once again little Kinloch finds itself at the center of events affecting a much wider sphere Daley, Scott and Symington struggle to find answers, with the story constantly flitting between the present struggles and the sinister events of the past.

This was the 5th in the DCI Daley series and each book was a different plot from the one before All of the books were very well written and well thought out The main characters developed their own personalities and foibles as each book was read I thoroughly enjoyed reading all the books in the series.Highly recommended.

Another triumph This latest Daley story did not disappoint Denial Meryck never shied away from really gritty, challenging storylines sometimes this makes for a difficult read but better that than sugar coating Can t wait for the next book to come out.

I loved this book, I think it s is the best in the series so far.

Interesting mix of the two time periods Poor DCI Daley he s having a bad time hope he smiles in the next book

Better than expected.Interesting plot, plenty of descriptive detail makes it very believable Enjoy all DCI Daley books good characters Will read , will recommend.

The best in the series so far History, heartbreak and suspense then the much loved main characters If you have liked the previous books, you ll love this one

A great readReally enjoyed this book A bit of a change from previous books in the series but the mix of detective novel and historical fiction works well.

Enjoyed this in places, but it didn t blow me away at any point.

The book is in both the present day but does have some references to occurrences of 1945 and when the Bremner family go missing on Gairsay DCI Daley finds that they were not what they seemed, They were thought to be a jewish family fleeing the war and the findings of the cellar in their house was threw a totally different light on the case What had happened to the Bremners and just who were they why were the normally chatty islanders just not telling him everything that they know When he stumble [...]
