One Last Dram Before Midnight cover

Bringing together six short stories – two of which are previously unpublished – One Last Dram Before Midnight is the perfect Christmas gift for fans of Denzil Meyrick. These tales take us from Jim Daley’s early days pounding the beat in Glasgow as a young constable to a light-hearted whisky smuggling romp involving Hamish and some ghostly pipers.

Includes four previously eBook exclusive stories: 'Single End', 'Two One Three', 'Dalintober Moon' and 'Empty Nets and Promises'.

‘What distinguishes Meyrick from other tartan noir authors is his humour and the depth of his interest in local issues… Although he delivers fine plotting and gore in abundance, he really comes into his own describing the back stories of the Kinloch locals and his lead characters’

* The Times, Audiobook of the week *

‘One Last Dram Before Midnight’ contains Meyrick’s trademark dark police humour and plenty of gritty cases, a few ghostly whispers also caress the pages, ensuring a gathering of gutsy, compelling tales

* LoveReading *

‘This man has terrific writing skills and reading his books have been a great pleasure. His characters are witty, gritty and he writes in a way that I feel I am actually back in Campeltown’

* Waterstones Bookseller *

'So many brilliant characters scattered throughout these tales . . . you get to learn about how different things were not only in the police force but also how people’s perceptions have changed over the years'

* Breakaway Reviewers *

‘Witty and informative. The characters throughout the book felt like they were real people and I found it difficult to put down’ 

* Waterstones Bookseller *

‘A brilliant collection of short stories linked to the DCI Daley series… With half a dozen stories to choose from they make the perfect lunch break filler and are guaranteed to have you smiling, as well as keeping you on tenterhooks’
