The fourth novel in the DCI Jim Daley series by Denzil Meyrick THE RAT STONE SERENADE is set as always around the rural town of Kinloch on Scotland s West Coast A place that is not unused to cold wet weather although the monumental snow storm that covers the landscape in this outing is a little unusual because of the heaviness of the snow and the length of the storm itself This might not stop DCI Jim Daley his trusty sidekick DS Brian Scott Daley s off and on again love interest PC Mary Dunn and their new boss when they are called upon to investigate some truly baffling goings on but it does certainly slow them downAs always there s a hefty component of the personal in this novel Jim Daley is back with his wife and their baby son James and Mary Dunn has moved on with a new boyfriend Daley is planning his resignation from the police force he s had enough of the darkness and the worst of humanity Their new boss is also new to the area and a bit of a character in her own right and she d prefer it if Daley stayed on as would DS Brian Scott Although in this outing Scott is really battling with demons bought on by his excessive drinking to the point where he s haunted by the spectre of a young boy the son of the Shannon family gone missing from the house on the clifftop many years ago whose bones may have just been discovered on a nearby pagan altarEverything in this novel revolves around the Shannon family their house on the clifftop that they return to yearly for their family company s AGM the past that got the family to this point and the secrets they are holding onto There s a pagan element to the historical elements as well as the current day situation as a photographer and then the journalist he was working with are found dead with some of the elements of those deaths being decidedly weird and ritualistic The weather here is used to create a typical locked room scenario where Daley his new boss and their small local team are inside the killing zone with outside help unable to get to them The threat is an odd one local ritualistic focused on the family and their business interests so it could be somebody who lives there or somebody the Shannon s have imported in their own travelling circusI listened to this novel rather than read it and it s certainly possible to keep track of the many layered plot here with the historical aspects woven into the current day action Whilst I ve always admired this narrator in this instance the accent deployed for the local vicar supposedly Australian was than enough to make me desperate for him to be an early victim or in the end the guilty party Mind you I wasn t 100% convinced by those in use for the American characters interwoven here as well but to an Australian s ear well there is no way any Australian sounds like this In the end whenever the Vicar appeared I did not care what he was up to too busy wishing him out of my hearingTHE RAT STONE SERENADE sees the love lives of Jim Daley and Mary Dunn get worse or better depending upon your perspective and Brian Scott s drinking is hitting crisis point With touches of woo woo unless you want to put that down to the DDT s the plot is twisty and complicated with past and present bought to bear although to be honest not too hard to fathom once the hauls of some local thieving are identified All in all though this is a nicely engaging series the new boss Carrie Symington is a welcome addition to the ensemble cast and even with the gruesomeness of the deaths in this one and a bit of daft police jep for a very nice change mostly male and that god awful accent it was an entertaining if not slightly way out there listenhttpswwwaustcrimefictionorgrevi

The Rat Stone Serenade DCI Daley #4 Characters Å eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Read º eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Å Denzil Meyrick Denzil Meyrick Å 8 Characters It’s December and the Shannon family are returning home to their clifftop mansion near Kinloch for their annual AGM Shannon International is one of the world’s biggest private companies with tendrils reaching around the globe in computing banking and mineral res. The Rat Stone Serenade is the 4th instalment of Mr Meyrick s DCI Daly series set in the fictional town of Kinloch on the west coast of Scotland It has a slightly darker tone and the humour befittingly subdued than its predecessors but it is a cracking read with layer upon layer of scheming intrigue and double crossing It is also fairly violentThe novel opens with Jim Daley contemplating his early retirement but he is soon pulled from this and his holiday by the discovery of a child s skeleton on the eponymous rat stone a large stone dating from ancient times which has links to the Druids and general bad things The skeleton is assumed to be that of Archie Shannon the heir to the vast private company Shannon Industries who disappeared 50 years previously in line with the curse laid on the Shannon family 100 years ago While the police are investigating the skeleton and trying to keep the annual gathering of the Shannon clan safe the mutilated body of a paparazzo is found and there is a spate of burglaries in the town Jim Daley s cup runs over when the reporter working with the paparazzo is also found dead by blood eagle I hope you are keeping up because this is only the start Through the whole novel the worst snow since 1963 wreaks havoc by cutting the town off preventing free movement or the arrival of reinforcements I should point out that snow is very rare in the coastal towns of Western Scotland and hardly ever lies for longI read this book in one sitting as it is utterly engrossing I was desperate to know what was coming next and was unable to predict anything about the plot It isn t very realistic or even plausible which normally I prefer in my police procedurals but it s a great yarn and tremendous fun The characters are becoming familiar as the series goes on but Mr Meyrick isn t standing still and they are evolving in every novel Jim Daley is having a bit of a mid life crisis determined to leave the police and his feelings for Mary Dunn behind to concentrate on his marriage and new son Brian Scott is suffering from the DTs now that he has given up the drink and has hallucinations He still manages a few good one liners but given his condition it is a bit subdued They have a new boss in the form of Superintendent Carrie Symington a very welcome addition as she is smart pleasant and not frightened to get her hands dirty if only all bosses were like herHighly recommended
