Summary

Just when Hamish most needs him - the dentist turns up dead...

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.

Only jaw-throbbing agony drives Hamish to Gilchrist's surgery, but what he finds is the dentist's dead body - putting several angry husbands in the frame for murder...

Fun yarn if u can ignore the political agenda here

These are fun stories so long as you can ignore the trite Daily Mail view of the world that this author obviously supports (ie all people on benefits choose to be so and are better off on benefits than they would be if working) which she introduces for no reason or benefit into her writing...shows the mistake of any author introducing such partisan views into what should be simple fun detective yarns..

Entertaining

Enjoyed this,but I like all the books with Hamish Mc Beth as the star, no violence but intriguing all the same. Read beautiful by David Monteath, they always manage to have a twist for Hamish to resolve and this one is no different
