A stimulating, fascinating and so very readable addition to the ‘D.C.I. Daley Series’. The past is haunting the present as murder visits an island off the coast of Kintyre. Denzil Meyrick’s writing style has evolved over the course of this series, the tone of the previous two novels branched out beyond the intimacy of Kinloch. Here Daley and Scott are at their very best within their own world, even while Daley is in a pit of personal anguish. Chief Superintendent Symington comes into her own as we discover what makes her tick. I found raised eyebrows, wry smiles, and chuckles followed Meyrick’s trademark humour which attaches itself brilliantly to Scott. Actual echoes from the Second World War reverberate around this piece of fiction and create an intriguing note of tension. ‘Well of the Winds' has to be one of my favourites in this captivating series, if you’ve not yet met Daley and Scott, do sink into the pages and introduce yourself. ~ Liz Robinson
Well of the Winds by Denzil Meyrick
As the Second World War 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 Gairsay, a tiny island off the coast of Kintyre, discovers that the Bremner family are missing 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 Urquhart, he soon realises that the Isle of Gairsay has many secrets. Assisted by his indomitable deputy, DS Brian Scott, and new boss, Chief Superintendent Carrie Symington, Daley must solve a wartime murder to uncover the shocking events of the past and the present.
