If You Like Denzil Meyrick Books, You’ll Love…

Whisky from Small Glasses is the first book in the Jim Daley series. This book follows the DCI Jim Daley as he is sent to investigate the body of a woman that has washed up on the beach. The body is found in a small country community where everyone is close and Daley is a stranger. The small town has more than it’s fair share of secrets and Daley will need to get to the bottom of them to solve the case. The writing has a very authentic feel and you can really feel the area as it is quite similar to where Meyrick himself lives.

The Last Witness is another great book in the Jim Daley series. This book tells the tale of a criminal boss who was sentenced to jail five years ago, but was then found dead in the back of an ambulance. Five years later, he’s back from the dead and out for a previous associate who is under protection in the small coastal town of Kinloch. The criminal boss is out to get his old associate and the only thing standing in his way is DCI Jim Daley.
