For Any Other Truth
A D.C.I Daley Thriller (Book 9) – SOON TO BE A MAJOR TV SERIES
When a light aircraft crash-lands at Machrie airport, DCI Jim Daley and his colleague Brian Scott rush to the scene. But it soon becomes clear that both occupants of the plane were dead before take-off …
Meanwhile in Kinloch, local fisherman Hamish is unwittingly dragged into danger when he witnesses something he shouldn’t, and hotel manager Annie is beginning to suspect her new boss may not be as he first appeared.
And just as Chief Superintendent Carrie Symington thinks she has finally escaped the sins of her past, she finds herself caught in an even deadlier trap.
As the action spills across the sea to County Antrim – all under the scrutiny of the Security Service – the search is on for any other truth.

'This latest DCI Daley thriller is deftly plotted and peopled with sympathetically drawn local characters and satisfyingly nuanced local wrongdoers'
– Irish Independent
'Gritty, gripping story, Fabulous characters, full of humour and if that was not enough the sense of place is just superb. Every time I finish one I think "When is the next one coming?"'
– The Bookseller
'A complex but compelling plot keeps the reader firmly on their toes as they turn each page; it becomes almost impossible to put it down. This one wrung all the emotions from me, it had my jaw clattering off the floor a fair few times and a wee hankie dabbing at the eyes at others. Do yourself a favour and go buy this now!'
– Chapter of My Life
'I am in awe of any writer who can make you hold your breath on the one hand and laugh out loud on the other. Such is For Any Other Truth'
– Waterstones Bookseller, Horsham
'A novel which you are likely to read with deepening pleasure'
– The Scotsman
'A twisty, intricate, and action-packed crime novel… demands that you keep on your toes as it splinters thoughts and catches emotions unawares ... With a fabulous cast and intricate plot, this crime novel packs a punch on the emotional front too'
'Dramatic … satisfying … Definitely a book to take on holiday and read by the beach or pool, or wherever we end up this year!'
– Press & Journal, Scottish Book of the Week
'Meyrick has really hit his stride with this one, with the development of DCI Daley and his rather complex sidekick DI Scott particularly well done. Well-considered smatterings of dark humour break the tension, there is a satisfying pace and beautiful Scottish backdrops are an added bonus'
– Scottish Field
'It's a complex story… Meyrick is skilled enough to pull it together'
– The Herald
'Denzil Meyrick writes fine crime novels and they get better with every outing. One of the few crime thrillers where the dialogue makes [you] laugh out loud. Meyrick brings real life and depth to his fictional community. Compelling'
– Journal of the Law Society of Scotland
