Publisher's Summary

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.

Not as good as the previous books

I was ready to give up on this book after the first few chapters but I persisted because I have enjoyed this author previously. Unfortunately the book did not improve and by the end I was left feeling disappointed and dissatisfied. The characters all seemed to have undergone a transformation since the last book and characters that I thought I knew and liked were so different that it almost seems as if a different writer has written the book.

I did not enjoy the plot, too far-fetched, too complicated and very hard to follow because it kept jumping backwards and forwards in time. There were too many deaths, too many clues and too confusing. I had guessed the outcome long before I reached the end of the book. I will read the next book but I hope very much that it will not be like this one.

I thought the narrator was very good but he was dreadful at Welsh accents.

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.
