'Absorbing ... no run-of-the-mill tartan noir'
'Universal truths ... An unbuttoned sense of humour ... Engaging and eventful'
The Wall Street Journal
'Spellbinding ... one of the UK's most loved crime writers'
The Sunday Post
'A compelling lead ... satisfyingly twisted plot'
'You'll have a blast with these'
'Dark, gutsy, and smirky Tartan Noir… wonderful storytelling, Jeremiah's Bell continues the series in fine style'
– LoveReading.co.uk, Book of the Month
‘A character-driven yarn with plenty of intrigue, but also humour and warmth amidst the murky goings-on. Meyrick proves once again that rural policing can be every bit as captivating, and gritty, as its urban equivalent’
– The Herald
‘Dripping with mystery, full of moments that will have the nerves jangling, and, if you are anything like me, your face screwing up in the odd wince or too as well… Another absolute winner that really kept me glued to the book whilst completely making my skin crawl. Loved it.’
‘This new novel is a rich broth…Meyrick has a brisk narrative style, rapid but not too rapid, for he takes time to anchor the improbabilities of his narrative in everyday normality. There is comedy too... Add to this some good atmospheric writing and moments of chilling horror, and you have a fine example of tartan noir, superior to most of the genre’
– Allan Massie, The Scotsman
'A unique, atmospheric and all-consuming thriller ... DS Scott is "pure dead brilliant", at times laugh out loud. Meyrick brings his usual skilful storytelling and gives us another engrossing page-turner'
- Journal of the Law Society of Scotland
