Denzil Meyrick’s Tartan Noir becomes more credible with each release, and he has really hit his stride with this one.
Each character contributes a unique perspective, with the development of DCI Daley and his rather complex sidekick DS Scott particularly well one.
This time, an aircraft crash-lands at Machrie Airport, but both of the plane’s occupants were dead before take-off.
Well considered smatterings of dark humour break the tension when needed, and there is a satisfying pace.
Beautiful Scottish backdrops are an added bonus.
For Any Other Truth, by Denzil Meyrick, published by Polygon, £8.99.
