Tooth for a Tooth


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 take him back 35 years 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 a 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?

Fearful of the final outcome, Gilchrist is torn between right and wrong.  Should he expose the truth and save his own career at the cost of his brother’s memory?

Or leave it buried among the lies of the past?
