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.
