For Fire on the Firth
"Fire on the Firth is a superbly crafted amateur sleuth mystery that entertains from beginning to end. But it's much more than that. Author Daniel Miller has taken his story — about American minister Daniel Darrow's quest to solve an arson and murder in the Scottish Highlands — and infused it with lessons on punishment, the environment, and a much-needed look at history and how we must avoid repeating it. But none of those weighty topics take away from the humor woven throughout the narrative, along with a sweet romance any reader is sure to enjoy. A wonderful debut from an author I want to read more of. And soon."—Rick Treon, author of Let the Guilty Pay, finalist for the 2021 Silver Falchion Award for Best Suspense Novel
“In Fire on the Firth, Daniel K. Miller delivers a delightful romp through the Scottish Highlands. Grab a good scotch and settle in for a heart-warming visit to Inverness with Daniel Darrow, the new reverend of Church Street Kirk, as he muddles his way through his new duties and attempts to win over his eccentric parishioners. Rev. Darrow hails from North Carolina in this charming fish out of water story with heart, humor and a side of arson. Daniel can’t ignore his calling, as an amateur sleuth, that is. With a burned-out castle at the heart of the mystery, layers of intrigue, and underpinnings of corruption, Fire on the Firth is sheer pleasure. But don’t be fooled, there is something nefarious beneath those ashes.” —Tina deBellegarde, Agatha-nominated author of Winter Witness, a Batavia-on-Hudson Mystery.
