Hand For A Hand Cover
MURDER – It’s the only word on a note clutched by the dismembered hand found on the Old Course in St. Andrews, Scotland. The grotesque case turns frightening when DCI Andy Gilchrist learns the note is addressed to him. Though no new hand at solving murders, Gilchrist is overwhelmed by the flood of seemingly unconnected crises – the note, the hand, his son’s missing girlfriend, his ex-wife’s failing health, and his boss’s decision to team him with a scumbag detective from his past, with secrets of his own. The case turns terrifying when other body parts are served up to Gilchrist, piece by slaughtered piece.

What the readers are saying about HAND FOR A HAND:

Lots of layers in Muir’s work that make for a fast and fascinating read. Where has he
been all this time?

Thanks Soho Crime for picking up yet another excellent writer and bringing him to
the US market. I love your acquisitions editor!!

From the start it pulls you in. With all the hatred driving the killings, it is love that
keeps Gilchrist going.

Any reader who enjoys Police Procedurals will instantly become a fan of T. Frank Muir.
I am looking forward to the next book in this series

If you enjoyed the first book of this wonderful British detective series, EYE FOR AN EYE,
