Okay, I’ve been asked by Caro Ramsay, the lovely looking crime writer with the long blonde hair, and whose books are always being nominated for some prize or another...

 

Busy little week

Happy to say that the launch of LIFE FOR A LIFE went well in Waterstones, Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, and the following night in St. Andrews. Now about to head...

 

Can we really go it alone?

With all the talk about the imminent Scots’ referendum on independence, many of us are giving serious thought to the question, Can we really go it alone? How could...

 
 

What secrets from the past was he about to uncover? 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 set Gilchrist off on a trail that take him back 35 years to his past and on course to find his brother’s killer in a fatal hit and run accident.

When dental records from an extracted tooth force Gilchrist to confront the unthinkable – that his brother was a killer – he keeps his fears to himself, only to be suspended on suspicion of destroying evidence. But Gilchrist battles on in his quest for answers. Who was the woman? Why was she murdered? And was the fatal hit and run really an accident?

Fearful of the final outcome, Gilchrist is torn between right and wrong.  Should he expose the truth and save his own career at the cost of his brother’s memory?

Or leave it buried among the lies of the past?

What readers are saying about TOOTH FOR A TOOTH:

The 3rd book starring DI Gilchrist in St. Andrews, is a nail biting, all night read! I hated
to finish it, as I did Mr Muir’s first two books.

…I was hooked from the first few pages, and if it wasn’t for heavy eyelids would have kept
on reading all night!
