Listen to Death of a Dentist on your phone!
If you haven’t already fallen in love with the internationally acclaimed M.C. Beaton, then this audiobook filled with her trademark wry wit and a wonderfully puzzling plot will do the trick. 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. Narrator Davina Porter captures Beaton’s smooth blend of motive, means, fast-paced action, and delightfully quirky characters while transporting listeners to the Scottish Highlands.
