    Another great story in the series

    DCI Jim Daley is welcomed back in Denzil's latest book The Well of the Winds. A different, more subdued Jim who has suffered personal loss plays a less full on role in this tale. This allows DS Brian Scott to become a more prominent character and the book is the better for the further depth of his role. Set on the beautiful isle of Gairsay (Gigha) it has all the dark and brooding elements of the DCI Daley thrillers with the usual humour and the added elements of the Met Special Branch and government security services. Ordinarily I am not a fan of books that jump from one era to another but Denzil's characters are so strong that the story flows easily and you "feel" that you are in 1945 then a seamless transition to the present day. Both stories intertwine beautifully into one well told tale. The characters I have grown to love through the series broaden througout this book and I found myself laughing out loud, gasping and at one point even giving a wee cheer!! The substories enrich and add even more twists, turns and red herrings to the overall story. Kintyre is not the first place you would think of as being a stopping off point for fleeing Nazi sympthisers but somehow it is believable, thrilling and gripping. The present day story woven in makes for a great read. The use of local dialect makes it more real for local readers but not unintelligible for those not fortunate enough to live in this glorious place!! All the books can be stand alone stories, however, I feel that starting with Whisky From Small Glasses gives a great introduction to the characters who develop through The Last Witness, Dark Suits and Sad Songs to The Rat Stone Seranade and onto the Well of the Winds. Delighted to learn that the next book in the series is due out next year. It seems I live my life just waiting for April to come round for the joy of the latest offering from Denzil Meyrick's pen.
