For the latest Scots Whay Hae! podcast Ali spoke to returning guest, the writer Denzil Meyrick.


Denzil has a new novel Murder at Holly House out, published on the Bantam Press imprint of Transworld Publishers.


It's been described by some as 'cosy crime' (although, as the two discuss, that term is an inadequate description) and is a departure from Denzil's more hard-nosed thrillers, and it was fascinating to talk to him about this change of styles.


The two also talk about the various influences on Murder at Holly House, creating the central character of Frank Grasby, setting the action in Yorkshire - and in the 1950s -as well as the future of DCI Daley (including the move to TV), his Kinloch novellas (now collected in paperback with Polygon Books), and the exciting news about what's coming next from Denzil.


It's always a pleasure to catch up with Denzil Meyrick, one of the finest writers around, and we hope you enjoy listening as much as we did talking.


And keep listening to the very end as there's a bonus clip from the audiobook of Murder at Holly House, which is narrated by Tom Turner, with thanks to publishers Transworld for providing it.
