About Me

My love affair with books, like most, started at an early age and is never ending. My book reading preferences have changed over the years and I look forward to sharing my varied reading tastes with you. You will find a lot of Crime Fiction (a penchant for Scottish Crime writers features a lot.) and also I love reading non fiction History. Hopefully you will find some new authors and new favourites to continue your own reading journey. ENJOY!

While perusing Fantastic Fiction as I often do in search of new Authors, I came across Scottish writer Denzil Meyrick. Whisky from Small Glasses (Waterstones Scottish book of the year 2015) is the first in this excellent thriller series.

book cover of Whisky from Small GlassesWe are introduced to DCI Jim Daley as he leaves Glasgow and his troubled marriage to head up an investigation of a body found in a small seaside town. There are lots of interesting and intriguing characters in the tight knit community of Kinloch and the story rolls along at a cracking pace. Plenty of dark humour and I loved the banter between Daley and his DI Brian Scott. As mentioned lots of interesting characters that hopefully Meyrick returns to as the series progresses. A very meaty police procedural overall and I look forward to reading more in this series.
