A novel with a difference from Denzil Meyrick

If you’ve previously enjoyed Denzil Meyrick’s trademark Tartan Noir, expect a rather gentler read here.

Following on from A Large Measure of Snow, we return to the fictional fishing town of Kinloch on Kintyre.

As a former distillery manager, Meyrick is well acquainted with the water of life, and so it is that two of his characters hatch a plan to transport illicit whisky supplies to a nearby village to combat exorbitant prices at a local hotel.

It’s atmospheric, it’s witty, and has a touch of Whisky Galore about it.

A Toast to the Old Stones: A Tale from Kinloch, by Denzil Meyrick, published by Polygon, £9.99.
