Description
Lovable Scottish constable Hamish Macbeth -- who would rather be fishing than detecting -- must root out another criminal in his thirteenth charmingly clever case.As the small village of Lochdubh has no dentist, locals travel 20 miles to Frederick Gilchrist's dental surgery in the town of Braikie. Although Lochdubh's one-man police force, Hamish Macbeth, prefers the more modern, painless procedures practiced by dentists in the city of Inverness, a blinding toothache one morning convinces him to give Gilchrist a try. Upon arriving, Hamish finds the dentist dead on the floor, a victim of nicotine poisoning. Discovering that the deceased was a non-smoker, Hamish must put his own toothache on ice -- to extract a murderer on the loose.

Murder with bite...

Dr. Frederick Gilchrist has a reputation. Though his cheap rates and penchant for pulling teeth have earned him a clientele, wiser highlanders avoid the womanizing dentist. It takes a blinding toothache to send Hamish Macbeth 120 miles out of Lochdubh to see the man, only to find him dead. Since everyone is pleased the dentist is deceased—patients, several harassed women, his ex-wife—Macbeth faces one of the more biting challenges of his career. When he starts extracting clues, he uncovers a past as dangerous as it is shocking.
