When Hamish Macbeth - Lochdubh's one-man police force - awakens one morning with a killer toothache, the only dentist who will see him immediately is Dr. Gilchrist. The dentist is infamous for some unsavory womanizing and his use of "The Great Australian Trench", a practiced slip of the drill that mars several teeth and ensures a return customer.
Unfortunately for Hamish, and Gilchrist, someone has canceled all the doctor's appointments - permanently. A toothache can drive a man mad, and Hamish, with a mouth full of throbbing pain, decides to go after the killer alone.

This was my first MC Beaton download and I though it was just great. Many very interesting characters. The narrator did a fantastic job as well. I would highly recommend this book.
this is my first Hamish mystery and I'll be reading more for sure!! I don't know if I liked it even more cause it was being read by Davina Porter!!
I really wanted one of the performer of the first 12 books. Barring that, a Hamish MacBeth story really NEEDS a male reader. Maybe I am just spoiled, but; . . . that is my opinion.
Don't get me wrong, th reader of this book did a great job with the Outlander series. But she is a poor choice for the hardcore Hamish fans like me.
A relaxing, witty listen. As a hard-core Agatha Raisin fan, this was my first foray into to the world of Hamish and very enjoyable it was! Full of witty banter and an enjoyable storyline. The narration was excellent. I will be going on to listen to further escapades of the lovely Hamish.
