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.

Narrator

Story is excellent but the narrator has no idea how scots speak. He made them sound either as though they could not string a sentence together or they were Irish May not matter to most people but as a native scot he was making my ears bleed

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.

Reasonably well-constructed story, overly dramatic narration

The narrator way overplays the drama. It sounds as if he thinks he’s auditioning for Hamlet. Some parts of the story seem far-fetched, and at least once incident is pretty disconnected - the part about the wife falling on the hill. But it’s a reasonably good way to pass some time.

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.
