Publisher's Summary

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. Nothing, not even death, has ever stood in James Machie's way.

OMG

Non stop action/mystery..hope there is a sequel. Kind of left me wondering at the end. Very descriptive, sometimes I was lost in the story as though I was just around the corner. A great read.

Accent

The pronunciation of names of people and places is not very good at all. It is clear that the narrator id not from The West Coast of Scotland. In this story DS Scott sounds like he is from Belfast not Glasgow and the Pronunciation of McLeod is terrible as with Cumnock to mention just a couple. For me it makes a good story hard to listen to.

Book 2, fairly crummy

Goofy plot plus below average reader predictable.

Plus he commits the gravest of sins... he le@ves The reader hanging instead of closing out the story. Lost me, permanently.

I choose what I want to read in a series, not the author!

Great

A couple of minor gaps in the story (would require spoilers to reveal) but overall quite enjoyable. I wish there were more of Meyrick available on Audible. I'd get them all, particularly with this narrator.

Shockingly bad reader

The good news is am pretty certain there is another version of this book read by someone who knows the difference between an Irish and Scottish accent (not that he achieves either really). Production is dire with lots of lousy drop ins. I like this writer a lot and this rubbish reader and recording is an insult to him and a rip off to audible listeners, there’s even a Mr. Macleeodd.
