When a light aircraft crash-lands at Machrie airport, DCI Jim Daley and his colleague Brian Scott rush to the scene. But it soon becomes clear that both occupants of the plane were dead before take-off ...

Meanwhile in Kinloch, local fisherman Hamish is unwittingly dragged into danger when he witnesses something he shouldn't, and hotel manager Annie is beginning to suspect her new boss may not be as he first appeared.

And just as Chief Superintendent Carrie Symington thinks she has finally escaped the sins of her past, she finds herself caught in an even deadlier trap.

As the action spills across the sea to County Antrim - all under the scrutiny of the Security Service - the search is on for any other truth.

Fictional Treat

Once again Denzil Meyrick has excelled in his writing and bringing to life the uniqueness of the Kintyre peninsula with this latest page turner featuring Daley and Scott. With relatable characters and at times, laugh out loud dialogue you can’t help but feel you know them well and share in their highs and lows, to the point that my eyes filled with tears when something happens to a loved character who has featured throughout the series. I won’t give away the story of course - you will have to read it for yourself.

Nothing other to say except it was a great read. Thanks Denzil!
