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.

Would you consider the audio edition of Well of the Winds to be better than the print version?

I prefer the audio versions

What was one of the most memorable moments of Well of the Winds?

The interactions between the main fractions at work in this tale are brilliant.

Which character – as performed by David Monteath – was your favourite?


Any additional comments?

An other excellent novel following the twists and turns of D.C.I Daily's life and career. The interaction of the main characters wants to make you believe that they are based on real people and are drawn from the experiences or observations made by the authors time in the Police.

A Thrilling Read

Denzil Meyrick gets better and better. Well of the Winds is cleverly written, bouncing between two different, yet related scenarios, periods of time and characters. This DCI Daley thriller kept me guessing right ro the end.
Brilliantly performed by David Monteath. I hope the DCI Daley series will continue. I have read books 1 to 5 back to back and have thoroughly hooked and would welcome a Book 6.
I would definitely recommend both Denzil Meyrick and the DCI Daley series.
