Death of a Dentist
Publisher: Blackstone Audiobooks
Date: February 2014
Duration: 6 hours 30 minutes
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.
“That wonderfully eccentric, funny, laid-back, people-smart, unorthodox Scottish detective Hamish MacBeth is back in another heartwarming if violence-filled adventure that will have fans pulling up their comfy armchairs and rubbing their hands in delightful anticipation…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)
