10 Years With Good Behaviour: The SWH! Podcast Talks To Denzil Meyrick...

For the latest SWH! podcast Ali spoke to writer Denzil Meyrick to talk about the publication of The Death of Remembrance, the 10th in the DCI Daley series of crime novels, as well as the one-off thriller Terms of Restitution, and the very different 'Tales of Kinloch' novellas.

Denzil gives us background to DCI Daley and how this series began and has progressed, the importance of the location of 'Kinloch', the development of the central characters over the novels, the importance of family in his work, and discusses the forthcoming adaptation of the series to TV.

The two also talk about how lockdown inspired both Terms of Restitution and the 'Tales of Kinloch' books, and Denzil's desire to write something different with each. It's an insightful and enthralling interview with one of Scotland's finest writers across any genre. We hope you agree.

Death of Remembrance and Terms of Restitution are out now, published by Birlinn
