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.

ah contrare, the series is so well written one may be disposed absolutely to overlook it. Because the setting is realistic, one learns a lot about the culture, customs and dialect spoken in this part of the world. The characterisation is solid but the themes grow tedious as they are so fantastical in nature.

Good series but I can do without the Hamish and Priscilla saga.

Quite good, unlike the newest in the series.

This is a poorly written book with a skimpy plot that displays Scottish highlanders in a very poor light. Main positive about the book is that it is a quick read.
