Pressestimmen

Praise for Tooth for a Tooth

"Muir, who lives near Glasgow, invests this series with a top-notch police-procedural plot, a touching examination of Gilchrist’s troubled personal life and a wealth of Scottish angst."
—Richmond Times-Dispatch

"Tooth for a Tooth is far more than just a police procedural-style crime novel. It is also a very poignant story of family and friends, confidence and envy, love and hate... Highly recommended."
—Mysterious Reviews

"Muir has woven a great suspense tale with plot twists that grab the reader with every chapter."
—Suspense Magazine

“A high-tension, fast-paced crime thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very last page. If you like detective novels set in Europe, you’ll love Tooth for a Tooth. If you haven’t tried one? Start with Muir.”
—Allison Brennan


"Interesting twists and turns that should satisfy even the most demanding mystery buff and the setting in the birthplace of golf is an added bonus."
—BookLoons

"On its own, the murder mystery that opens Tooth for a Tooth would be enough for most novels. But when it all turns highly personal for DCI Andy Gilchrist, Tooth kicks into high gear and accelerates straight through to the harrowing finale. This is my first Gilchrist. Must go back for the others."
—F. Paul Wilson
 
“An edgy emotive thriller that winds up the tension to an edge of the cliff climax."
—Caro Ramsay

 
“A clever thriller, tinged with melancholy.”
—Karen Campbell

“With his beautifully drawn characters and skillful story-telling, Muir weaves a mystery that’s hard to put down—fast-paced and unpredictable to the very last page.” 
—John Clement, author of the Dixie Hemingway series

“Gilchrist is a top drawer, compelling character – up there with Rebus, Morse, Bergerac and Frost.”
—Anna Smith

“St. Andrews has been crying out for its own crime series: top man, Frank Muir, for providing it, with work that's as mysterious as the place itself.  DCI Andy Gilchrist is set for a long career.”
—Quentin Jardine


"As differently crafted as a single malt whisky and Tennent's Lager... Psychologically gripping, deeply suspenseful, and character driven."
—Carole E. Barrowman, Milwaukee Journal-Senitnel

"The jaws of this book grab you, bite down and hold you in their grip . . . Muir layers on the depth as the storyline twists and turns to an explosive conclusion."
Daily Record


Praise for the Gilchrist investigations

"Everything I look for in a crime novel."
—Louise Welsh


"Fear and desperation are twisting through every beautifully written line . . . [Muir does] bloody but brilliant thrillers."
The Daily Record

"A tense, fast-paced crime novel."
Scottish Review of Books


"The completely unexpected plot twists and the simple humanity of the characters have you hooked."
Scots Magazine

"The suspense never wavers."
—Clarissa Dickson Wright

Kurzbeschreibung

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?

Praise for T.F. Muir:

'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

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mystery Novel Tooth for a Tooth Has It All -- Complex Characters & A Fascinating Plot Presented in Clean, Crisp Prose 11. Februar 2014
Von kas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I had never read author T. Frank Muir's work before winning a non-copyrighted early version (i.e. an ARC, basically) of <i>Tooth for a Tooth</i> in a Goodreads giveaway. Winning the prize was especially serendipitous because I ended up enjoying the novel tremendously, and I'm not sure if/when/how I would have learned about it if I hadn't seen it there first.

I've had the opportunity to read and review a lot of really enjoyable novels in the last year, but even among this group, <i>Tooth for a Tooth</ i> stands out in my mind for the rapidity with which it engrossed my full attention and kept me engaged with the plot from the first page until the last. My imagination immediately translated the text to images in my mind, so that reading the novel was like watching particularly good television or film.

One feature of this mystery novel -- which I was able to engage with so closely despite never having read any other book in this (Andy Gilchrist) series or even by this author -- that drew me in was the context in which the reader first meets our hero, DCI Andy Gilchrist. He's at his ex-wife's funeral. His emotions are raw, and the reader knows that she is privy to a moment of rare vulnerability in Gilchrist. She sees him relate to his children and gets a snapshot of those relationships, experiences the deep and ambivalent feelings aroused by the deceased and her husband, and gains various other slivers of insight into the deeper facets of Gilchrist's character. This is certainly not a police procedural series with straw figure characters who sacrifices character development and other elements of the novel to the plot.

<i>Tooth for a Tooth</i> is a well-balanced novel written in clean, crisp prose that offers the reader both an exciting mystery plot and three-dimensional, complex characters. I think most readers will enjoy this book and highly recommend it to a wide audience.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Hey, where did Gina go? 13. Dezember 2013
Von Kenneth C. Mahieu - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Von Amazon bestätigter Kauf
One third of the way through this third book in Muir's Andy Gilchrist series, I am thinking this is very, very good. Bones have been found in a cemetery but not in a casket. Clearly they have been there some time. And the case turns out to have close personal ties to St. Andrews police detective Andy. Very atmospheric, very tense. Lots of characters, most of them very interesting. Then the book just seems to get weighted down with too much detail. Too much who did what when. At one point near the end, Andy is sure he knows who the killer is. But the guy turns out to have a perfect alibi. Now Andy is sure he knows who the killer is. I liked the other two books as well but my recollection is that endings are not Muir's strong suit. And what ever becomes of Gina? It's as though Muir got bored with her and just forgrot her. One last comment - "tooth" has just about nothing to do with the story. When the series "A is for..... " you knew a clever author could have a run of 26 stories. But after "Eye for an Eye", and "hand", I feel Muir is beginning to struggle already with this anatomical title thing? Any guesses for future titles?

As with the previous two books the story constantly moves at a fast pace. You can feel the emotions of Gilchrist and are with him every step of the way.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved it! 25. September 2012
Von Craig Jackson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
A great book! I really enjoyed it! A very intelligent story that kept me hooked all the way through. Gilchrist is a brilliant character to read as well. I've read the first two books and it's great to get the chance to read another. Thank you Frank Muir!
