'Jim Daley and Brian Scott are like a fine cask whisky. They improve each and every year. What a fabulous read, compelling to the very end. For me the best in the series so far. I found some laugh out loud moments and others reaching for the tissues. The ending was unexpected and I did not see it coming. Time to pre-order now' -- David Gilchrist, Founder of UK Crime Book Club 'Plotting that mystifies, captivating characters and spectacular locations: the essentials, and A Breath on Dying Embers overflows with all three. The Gold Dagger awaits' * Quentin Jardine * 'This is visceral reading - you feel it before you think it' * Sunday Post * 'There's darkness, and there's an awful lot of gut-roaring laughter and light too, making for an exceptional read. There are themes that will strike a chord with everyone who reads it. Meyrick's gift is to write visceral prose in a way that hits home and feels all too real and to combine it with superb, layered, plotting' * LiveandDeadly.net * 'Exemplary - humour and a high stakes threat' * Herald * 'Meyrick has a light touch other crime writers don't have. Highly readable and enjoyable' -- Chris MacCall * Scotland on Sunday * 'A great read...characterisation is extremely well delivered, the loud-mouthed, somewhat comedic Scott, and the likeable, dependable Daley, local colour is added by a cast of interesting residents, whose far from simple lives seem at odd with the picture postcard place they inhabit' * Undiscovered Scotland *
