Denzil Meyrick: A Little Bit of History and Fictional Places
We made a discovery this week - the term ‘Cops’ may well have originated in Scotland and crossed the Atlantic to America! So says our guest this week - Scottish best-selling writer Denzil Meyrick, the creator of the DCI Jim Daley series. Jerimah’s Bell is the 8th in the DCI Daley series (released: June 2020). Denzil tells Theresa about his setting of rural Kinloch, the old name for Campbeltown in Kintyre where he grew up, and where he sets many of his books. Denzil recommends Neil Lancaster’s new book, Going Rogue. Neil, like Denzel, was previously a ‘cop’. We also hear from the American superstar of crime writing, David Baldacci, talking about his novel, One Good Deed, and his long writing career. David opened the Bloody Scotland International Crime Writing Festival last year.
