Publisher's Summary

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 will take him back 35 years - back 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 her 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?

About the author: Born in Glasgow and now a dual UK/US citizen, Frank is a crime novelist with the first two books of his DCI Andy Gilchrist series published - the first, Eye for an Eye, won the Pitlochry Award for the best crime novel by an unpublished writer, and the second, Hand for a Hand, continues to garner great reviews. Frank is now working on his next Andy Gilchrist novel, another story suffused with dark alleyways, cobbled streets and all things gruesome.

What the Critics Say

"Everything I look for in a crime novel" (Louise Welsh)

"Rebus did it for Edinburgh. Laidlaw did it for Glasgow. Gilchrist might just be the bloke to put St Andrews on the crime fiction map." (Daily Record)

"A bright new recruit to the swelling army of Scots crime writers" (Quintin Jardine)

    "Great series so far"

    Loved these books having now read all three in the series currently available on audible. Really like this narrator and hope they will stick with him in future books in the series. You do need to read them in the correct order and will certainly enjoy them all the more for doing so. They are pretty clever books with enough twists and turns to keep you listening late into the night. Like Gilchrist and his sidekicks and would hope this series will continue to delight as the charactors are developed further, So far this author puts me in mind of Caro Ramsay who I am a great fan of.

    "Well written and well read"

    I enjoyed this very much from the plausible and exciting plot to the way the narrator brought the characters life. Each character was given a perfect voice and the ending had me unable to turn it off. Start to finish it was an exciting and twisty, turny plot and I thoroughly recommend it.

    "Best one so far"

    This is a high quality series and this is my favourite so far. Lots of twists and turns, a further development of Gilchrist's personal story and a fiendishly difficult crime to solve all brought to life with excellent narration.. It simply ticks all the boxes!

    "Great book and very easy to listen to"

    Thoroughly enjoyed all 3 of these books and narrator very good- made it very easy to listen to and get into the book with the accent! Read in the wrong order but i don't think it really mattered. So glad I found these- really looked forward to switching on- shame there aren't anymore to listen to.

    "First book from author for me - choice was totally random, due to others write ups."

    I was really enjoying tale - till the last two hours ( other than the not too good welsh accent - but easily forgiven).
    Confusing, unbelievable n feel let down by end...

    "Simple well paced and an excellent read/listen"

    I find the pace and simplicity if the story compelling with just enough twists and turns to keep you on your toes. the explanatory nature of some of the text is endearing as the story line is often hard to take.
    The narration is excellent and totally in keeping with the story.
    Will continue to listen to this series
    Excellent book

    Story
    "Tooth for a Tooth"

    A really good listen. Once again TJ Muir steps up to the plate with a storyline full of twists and turns.
    The sad story of a group of friends that turned so sour as to invite murder and the promiscuous living fuelled by drink drugs and fast cars. All leading to a sad end for two young people and their families.
    Andy Gilchrist’s maverick approach only just gets his results but it’s a heck of a rollercoaster ride !!!
    Excellent. Highly recommended.

    Story
    "Good story if a little long. "

    Enjoyed the story, involving the discovery of a woman's skeleton found in the grave of a man who had been buried back in the 1960's and mysteriously linking it to DCI Gilchrist's late brother Jack.

    There are lots of twists and turns that not only involves the investigation into the historic murder of the woman but also the answer to who was responsible for the hit and run that killed Gilchrist's brother 35 years ago.

    The introduction at the beginning of the story of the Psychic was a little far fetched and I didn't really see the point of her character at all. All she seemed to do was be an annoying obnoxious American writer, and her only clue to being a psychic was her mentioning to Gilchrist that she sees flames and to be careful!! 🤔

    David Monteath's narration was as always brilliant. I'm looking forward to listening to the next in the series. Recommended.
