D.A. Meyrick – Whisky from Small Glasses
Whisky From Small Glasses is set in a small Scottish rural town and it reveals the cauldron of sex, drugs, violence, corruption and murder that lies beneath the dour surface of Kinloch life. It starts with one body found in the sea. Two more bodies are quickly added as it becomes clear a serial killer is at large. Further ramifications include police and harbour staff corruption and the involvement of a Latvian drugs smuggling ring. The book introduces Chief Detective Inspector Jim Daley whose complex relationships with his bosses; his colleagues; and his unfaithful but passionately loved wife, drive the story forward to a dramatic conclusion.
Whisky From Small Glasses is the first in a series of crime novels set in rural South West Scotland and will comment on how such rural communities are coming to terms with 21st Century life and all its complexities.
