Death of a Dentist

Death of a Dentist

An untimely death wipes the smile from Hamish’s face . . .

In Scotland, where thrift and a ‘nice set of dentures’ are generally admired, Dr Frederick Gilchrist’s cheap rates and penchant for pulling teeth have gained him quite 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 there is the dentist’s dead body – putting several angry husbands in the frame for murder . . .

Praise for M.C. Beaton:

‘The books are a delight: clever, intricate, sardonic and amazingly true to the real Highlands’ Kerry Greenwood

‘It’s always a special treat to return to Lochdubh’ New York Times

A gem of a book, a gem of a plot, a gem of a hero.
Booklist
Splendid fun.
New York Times Book Review
The much-love Hamish Macbeth series . . . a beguiling blend of wry humour and sharp observations about rural life.
