Editorial Reviews

Review

I would definitely recommend The Amulet to readers who pine for Lovecraft meets Chandler storylines, or to readers who simply wish their urban fantasy-tinged fiction took more risks. - CSI: Librarian

(The Amulet) ... meets a basic starting formula, but Meikle actively makes that formula his. The writing itself is crisp, filled with good description and strong dialogue. The Scottish setting, while not prominent, grounds the reader in a sense of place. The characters, while themselves variations on noir tropes, are beleivable, and more importantly, likable. All of this, taken together, makes for a smooth, enjoyable read. - Rich Ristow, Strange Latitudes

The Amulet moves along at a brisk pace, with Derek being directed both overtly and covertly by his femme fatale to a climax that tests the limits of the PI and his client and her husband as they battle to keep evil at bay. Whether or not Derek can claim victory at the end, he will be forever and unequivocally changed. I encourage you to pour yourself a couple of fingers of whisky and visit Meikle's and Derek's Glasgow some evening as the shadows grow long. - New Pulp

(The Amulet)... is a loving romp in and out of both the Lovecraft Mythos and the noir detective novel, predictable in its own way but unapologetically so, and ultimately fulfilling because most of us have loved the same two sets of elements forever and can't resist whenever they are brought together again. - Bill Gagliani, Chizine

Bottom line, I enjoyed every bit of (The Amulet). Meikle's writing makes you feel like you're there, in the rain with Derek Adams, searching seedy pawn shops and bars for the answers. The atmosphere is terrific, and the author knows that sometimes less is more. - The Lovecraft ezine

From the Author

I read widely, both in the crime and horror genres, but my crime fiction in particular keeps returning to older, pulpier, bases.

My series character, Glasgow PI Derek Adams, is a Bogart and Chandler fan, and it is the movies and Americana of the '40s that I find a lot of my inspiration for him, rather than in the modern procedural.

That, and the old city, are the two main drivers for the Midnight Eye stories.
