“One of the best first books by a British author we have had the privilege to review.”
“Everything you would want in a crime novel: realistic copper, dodgy businessmen, out and out villains and enough twists and turns to tie you up and hang you over a precipice of suspense.”
LOVEREADING (Book of the Month)
“A stylish police thriller with a beautifully formulated ‘locked room’ mystery – and a cracking plot.’
“On an increasingly crowded Tartan Noir bookshelf, Daly is carving out a niche for himself.
We have no qualms about recommending him as a great new writer to discover for yourself.”
CRIME FICTION LOVER (5-star review)
“Daly evokes Glasgow with a masterly touch.”
“An impressive new voice in Tartan Noir.”
“There's a huge following out there for good Tartan Noir and Never Proven is very good Tartan Noir indeed.
It will delight readers with its beautifully plotted twists and turns that keep you guessing all the way to what must be one of the best endings ever to a whodunit.”
THE PHEASANT PLUCKER
“The Pheasant Plucker is the sort of book that reminds you how much fun reading can be as we follow Frank McClure on his bizarre MI6 assignment to Montpellier in southern France.
You have the feeling that Daly had as much fun writing this book as his readers have following its highly enjoyable plot through to an extremely satisfying conclusion.”
