A Breath on Dying Embers
A D.C.I. DALEY THRILLER (BOOK 7) – SOON TO BE A MAJOR TV SERIES
'A great read…characterisation is extremely well delivered, the loud-mouthed, somewhat comedic Scott, and the likeable, dependable Daley, local colour is added by a cast of interesting residents, whose far from simple lives seem at odd with the picture postcard place they inhabit'
‘'Meyrick has a light touch other crime writers don't have. Highly readable and enjoyable'
¬ Scotland on Sunday
'Exemplary – humour and a high stakes threat'
– The Herald
‘There’s darkness, and there’s an awful lot of gut-roaring laughter and light too, making for an exceptional read. There are themes that will strike a chord with everyone who reads it. Meyrick’s gift is to write visceral prose in a way that hits home and feels all too real and to combine it with superb, layered, plotting'
– Live and Deadly
'This is visceral reading – you feel it before you think it'
– Sunday Post
'Plotting that mystifies, captivating characters and spectacular locations: the essentials, and A Breath on Dying Embers overflows with all three. The Gold Dagger awaits'
– Quentin Jardine
'Jim Daley and Brian Scott are like a fine cask whisky. They improve each and every year. What a fabulous read, compelling to the very end. For me the best in the series so far. I found some laugh out loud moments and others reaching for the tissues. The ending was unexpected and I did not see it coming. Time to pre-order now'
– David Gilchrist, Founder of UK Crime Club
‘An enthralling read from the provocative prologue through to the whammy of a final chapter… a rewarding, satisfying read and fabulous addition to the series’
