Publisher's Summary

A number one Scottish crime best seller from Denzil Meyrick; 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....

Best narrator ever! Exciting story.

The story is great and really funny in places.
Great characters and the narrator is amazing - he has a wide range of accents to deal with, but is mesmerising to listen to.
Listened to Whiskey In Small Glasses first. Both as good as each other.

good story - but

good story and well read so an interesting listen. however the stories in this series are, I think, overloaded with unecessary swearing. this does not shock but just annoys and adds nothing to the story.

Keeps getting better

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is really good,engrossing story. Complex enough to keep you thinking but very easy to listen to. A very gripping end, with the promise of more!

Any additional comments?

The narrator, David Monteath, is superb. Couldn't have chosen better.

Another great story with loads of surprises

Would you listen to The Last Witness again? Why?

It's a multi faceted story which keeps the listener guessing to the end.

Who was your favorite character and why?

D.C.I. Daley as flawed lead character. Looking forward to learn more of his life in the next story.

Have you listened to any of David Monteath’s other performances? How does this one compare?

David Monteath is a master of bringing several characters to alive and giving them all individual voices and genuine accents. This nuanced delivery is pure joy tolisten to.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, but 10 hours are best listened to in two chunks.

Any additional comments?

Great entertainment from the coast of Scotland.

A good read

I enjoyed this book but it was not quite as good as the first book in the series. It was very well read but the plot was predictable and in some ways disappointing. I disliked the heavy hint at the end of the book about the direction of the next book.

I didn't like having the first chapter of the next book tagged on to the end of this book. It put me off wanting to buy it and I decided to take a break from this series of books. The narrator was excellent, a joy to listen to.

An excellent sequel

Just as good as the first, this book kept my interest right to the end. The characters have been developed further and the storyline had pace and intrigue.

Praise must be made to the outstanding narration which lifts the story to another level. I look forward to book 3.

Good narration. Weak writing

I love a thriller even if they’re a bit formulaic sometimes. However I found this book slightly confusing with the characters and the writing repetitive and slightly irritating. I kept losing concentration and having to ‘re-wind’ which is never a good sign... The narrator was good though and had a voice I would happily listen to for hours.
