Tooth for a Tooth by T. Frank Muir
By Jeff Ayers
When a woman’s skeleton is discovered in a shallow grave DCI Andy Gilchrist is tasked with finding her murderer. But a psychic’s warnings and markings on a rusted cigarette lighter found among the rotted remains take Gilchrist on a journey into his own past that brings him closer to discovering the identity of his brother’s killer from a hit-and-run case some thirty-five years before.
When dental records from an extracted tooth force Gilchrist to confront the unthinkable—that his brother was her killer—he keeps his fears to himself, only to be suspended on suspicion of destroying evidence.
“A high-tension, fast-paced crime thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. If you like detective novels set in Europe, you’ll love Tooth for a Tooth. If you haven’t tried one? Start with Muir.”
“The jaws of this book grab you, bite down and hold you in their grip . . . Muir layers on the depth as the storyline twists and turns to an explosive conclusion.”
Now a dual US/UK citizen, Frank makes his home in the outskirts of Glasgow, from where he visits St Andrews regularly to carry out some serious research in the old grey town’s many pubs and restaurants. Frank is working on his next novel, another crime story suffused with dark alleyways and cobbled streets and some things gruesome.
