Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
In Scotland, where thrift and a "nice set of dentures" are admired, Dr. Frederick Gilchrist's cheap rates and penchant for pulling teeth have gained him a clientele. However, wiser Highlanders--like Lochdubh policeman Hamish Macbeth--steer clear of this reputed womanizer's too-busy hands. Only jaw-throbbing agony could drive Macbeth to Gilchrist's surgery. The day it does, the constable stoically prepares to lose his smile. But what he finds is more nerve-wrenching: the body of Dr. Gilchrist. With more than one angry husband a possible suspect, Macbeth may be biting off more than he can chew when he starts to extract clues... and uncovers a past as dangerous as it is shocking.
