In Scotland, where thrift and a “nice set of dentures” are generally admired, dental surgeon Dr. Frederick Gilchrist’s cheap rates and penchant for pulling teeth have gained him a clientele. However, wiser Highlanders (like Hamish Macbeth) opt to steer clear of this reputed womanizer’s all-too-busy hands. A blinding toothache sends Hamish Macbeth 120 miles out of Lochdubh to the infamous dentist’s door. Unfortunately for Hamish and Gilchrist, someone has canceled all the doctor’s appointments—permanently. Since everyone is pleased the dentist is deceased—patients, several harassed women, and even his wife—Macbeth faces one of the more biting challenges of his career. A toothache can drive a man mad, and Hamish, with a mouth full of throbbing pain, decides to go after the killer alone.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“That wonderfully eccentric, funny, laid-back, people-smart, unorthodox Scottish detective Hamish MacBeth is back in another heartwarming if violence-filled adventure…Using his innate knowledge of human nature, his keen intuition, and his superb investigative skills, he soon gets at the heart of the matter. A gem of a book, a gem of a plot, a gem of a hero—M. C. Beaton and Hamish MacBeth shine once again.” Booklist (starred review)
“Beaton lavishes so much affection on her laconic copper that it’s well nigh impossible not to fall for ace moocher Hamish, with his quick mind, deceptively simple manner, and accursed luck with the fairer sex.” Publishers Weekly
“This one gets Hamish into trouble, big-time, and brings a rescue by Sarah, but not until another murder is committed do all the loose ends come together….[and with] a cast of engaging locals with full-blown Highland accents.” Kirkus Reviews
“In search of the murderer, Macbeth uncovers long-buried relationships, an illicit local still, a robbery that is not what it appears, and the expected deceptions and partial truths his countrymen tell the police for reasons only a local character like Hamish can understand…Macbeth’s efforts bustle charmingly along against the background of quirky Scots dialect and rustic pubs. And Beaton’s tangled web of a mystery is tidily resolved.” Amazon.com
