From the back cover: James Machie was a man with a genius for violence, his criminal empire spreading beyond Glasgow into the UK and mainland Europe. Fortunately, James Machie is dead, assassinated in the back of a prison ambulance following his trial and conviction.
But now, five years later, he is apparently back from the grave, set on avenging himself on those who brought him down. Top of his list is his previous associate, Frank MacDougall, who unbeknownst to D.C.I. Jim Daley, is living under protection on his lochside patch, the small Scottish town of Kinloch. Daley knows that, having been the key to Machie’s conviction, his old friend and colleague D.S. Scott is almost as big a target.
And nothing, not even death, has ever stood in James Machie’s way .
Welcome to another adventure with Detective Chief Inspector Jim Daley. This time it looks as if he is up against a criminal genius who seems to be avenging himself on those from his trial. There is only one problem he has been dead for five years. I think this is one of the most fascinating and clever mystery thrillers ever! And, of course, D.C.I. Jim Daley is just an exceptional character that we get involved with as he tries to bring his detective skill against a criminal genius. I recommend that you start early, turn off the phone, hit the bathroom and make a big bowl of popcorn. From experience once you get started you are not going to want to be interrupted. Mr. Meyrick has set it up so that you are captured from the first page and he doesn’t let go until the last. I am already looking forward to more from this talented author.
