Six victims, all wife beaters. Each stabbed to death through their left eye. The cobbled lanes and backstreets of St Andrews provide the setting for these brutal killings. But six unsolved murders and mounting censure from the media force DI Andy Gilchrist off the case. Driven by his fear of failure, and desperate to redeem his career and reputation, Gilchrist vows to catch The Stabber alone...
Frank Muir was born in Glasgow and plagued from a young age with the urge to see more of the world than the rain sodden slopes of the Campsie Fells. Twenty-five years of working overseas helped him appreciate the raw beauty of his home country.

Looking for more
This was a chance buy. It's not Rebus, nor is it a Serrailer but....!? I was quickly drawn in, probably as much by the narrator as the initial plot but soon could not leave it alone. DI Gilchrist has as many personal issues as we come to expect but he also seems very human - struggling with communicating with his children and ex-wife. I was put off a bit by the reference to Prince William studying at St Andrews, a bit unnecessary in my opinion and it will date the book terribly. Am heading off to search for more in the series for my next credits.

The first time I have come across this author ... and what a find. An excellent story, kept me guessing right to the end. More than just a writer, he is a wordsmith too and some of the language was almost poetry! I believe he won an award with this book and it was well deserved. Will look for his other book now, A hand for a hand.
Must also mention the narrator who really did bring this story to life. He was a pleasure to listen to. Will watch out for him too.
