In this addition to Beaton's series featuring unassuming Scottish policeman Hamish Macbeth, Hamish finds himself precipitated by a vicious toothache into the world of Dr. Frederick Gilchrist. Gilchrist is a local dentist best known for his eagerness to replace healthy teeth with inexpensive dentures, and infamous for his hard hand on the drill. Maggie Bane, his lovely assistant with a harsh and unlovely voice, surprises Hamish with her hostility, but he is even more astonished to find the dentist's dead body reclining in his chair with mysterious drill marks on his teeth.

Delving deeper into the village's rural dish in search of the murderer, Macbeth uncovers long-buried relationships, an illicit local still, a robbery that is not what it appears, and the expected deceptions and partial truths his countrymen tell the police for reasons only a local character like Hamish can understand. Once again, he has occasion to contact his former love, the adamantine Priscilla Halburton-Smyth, and her friend, Sarah Hudson, even helps Hamish hack into police records for his investigation.

Macbeth's efforts bustle charmingly along against the background of quirky Scots dialect and rustic pubs. And Beaton's tangled web of a mystery is tidily resolved to the satisfaction of the locals and, surely, for all the devoted fans of this winning series. --Barbara Schlieper

From Library Journal

Desperate for relief, Scottish constable Hamish Macbeth takes his toothache to a nearby dentist with a lousy reputation. Unfortunately, he discovers the man dead of nicotine poisoning. As he investigates, Hamish finds that the victim had many enemies, including his own wife. A reliable series (Death of a Macho Man, LJ 6/1/96).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "DEATH OF A DENTIST IS DELIGHTFUL!!!!! 6 mai 2001
Par Mac Blair - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
Another good one by M C Beaton. I have read 10 of the Hamish Macbeth series, all have been good but I think this one might be one of the best. As usual Hamish is caught in the middle of a murder and then guess what---a second murder-----guess who finds both bodies? Beaton has provided plenty of good characters to go with Hamish and it make for a good light read. It won't scare you to death or cause you do loose sleep from fright but it is good. Hamish has to fight the bad Inspector Blair as always. I liked the part of the Smiley Bros. Could they make moonshine and be killers too???? How about Kylie, pretty but has bad, bad boy friends. A surprise in the end, many twist and turns. Priscilla finally shows up again, will they get back together???? Beaton leaves enough to let you know they will be more forth coming.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Beaton continues her series in this "driller"! 13 novembre 2000
Par Billy J. Hobbs - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
The M.C. Beaton Hamish Macbeth series is not exactly the type of police procedural one can sink his/her teeth in to, but, nonetheless, it is a fun one to read. Beaton apparently isn't concerned about being compared to Ruth Rendell, P.D. James, or Martha Grimes, as she has culitvated her own following! In "Death of a Dentist," Macbeth, the lovable, affable, and dedicated local constable in the Scottish Highlands village of Lochdubh, has a toothache (literally!). He is quite reluctant to have it attended to, as he does not particularly care for the dentist, Dr. Gilchrist, who, among other things, has a reputation for being a womanizer with "traveling hands"! And, of course, the good doctor winds up dead--with any number of possible suspects, mainly from disgruntled husbands rather than complaining patients! It is up to Macbeth to solve, once again, a local crime. In driving to the expected conclusion and solution, Macbeth uncovers a surprising (and shocking) "dental
history," as it were. Predictable as it is, "Death of a Dentist" is still a pleasant read. There are some 13 books in this series and all are bonuses! (Billyjhobbs@tyler.net)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hamish & The Hacker 22 mai 2000
Par Mamalinde - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Once again M.C. Beaton kills off the least liked person for miles around, then turns the ever unambitious Constable Hamish out to solve the crimes, despite the roadblocks of the nasty Chief Inspector Blair -- the boss we all love to hate. The Honorable Hamish meets up with a beautiful hacker and into the police computer they travel. Solving a myriad of other crimes in pursuit of the Dentist killer, Hamish MacBeth, the charming and ambitionless Highlands police constable, plods through snow, sleet and perverse characters, getting himself battered and bruised both physically and emotionally. Hamish, Seeker of Peace and Quiet, finds himself dashing about the Highlands in the capricious pre-Christmas cold of the Highlands, disregarding instructions from headquarters, solving robberies, tracking bootleggers, investigating two murders, encumbered by a surfeit of beautiful women together with a few compromising positions. Davina Porter does a much better job on these tapes, evening out the highs and lows of her voice.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Series is a Delight! 29 janvier 2004
Par S. Schwartz - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This is a really strong entry in the Hamish Macbeth series. In it we see a dentist from the neighbouring village of Braikie get murdered. He was apparently not a very good dentist, and was rather fond of "drawing the tooth" rather than repairing it, but Hamish has an incredible toothache, and needs it taken care of right away. He goes to this dentist and finds him dead in his chair. As he delves into the life of Dr. Gilchrist, he finds angry husbands and jilted lovers galore in his past. The problem is not who has the motive, but which one. Hamish sets out to find the murderer in his unpreposessing, but charming way. I really like this series. The people from the sleepy little village of Lochdubh and it's neighbouring villages are eccentric and delightful. It's always fun to see what they're up to next. My personal favourite is the fisherman with the nagging wife - Archie Macleod.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another Home-Run for Beaton! 10 juin 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This latest installment of M.C. Beaton's Hamish MacBeth series our hero suffers, perseveres and triumphs in his usual hysterical fashion. Set against the backdrop of the Scottish Lochdub, Hamish's perils begin with a woeful toothache and a lonesome heart. Beaton has brought back our hero, the hated Blair, the lazy Anderson and all the quirks of a quiet Scottish village. This time Hamish has a myriad of surprises to contend with. But he does it in rare fashion and without his beloved Priscilla! Always delightful, intriguing and easy to read, with Death of a Dentist Beaton has managed to combine humor, love and angst, thrills, spills and chills!
