Publisher's Summary

Suspenseful, pause-resisting crime writing at its gripping best featuring DCI Andy Gilchrist and set in St Andrews, Scotland
Will DCI Andy Gilchrist end up like the others - dead, beheaded on a beach? The middle of winter in St Andrews. When a young woman's half-naked body is found on Fife's Coastal Path, frozen and with remnants of a rope manacle around her wrist, DCI Andy Gilchrist is given the case.
Gilchrist's investigation uncovers a bloody trail of shootings and executions that lead him to the heart of a trafficking war. Links to Scotland's foremost criminal family, the Home Office, and a killer intent on expanding his territory, pull Gilchrist deeper into this murderous web until he comes face to face with the most dangerous man he has ever met.
Born in Glasgow and now a dual UK/US citizen, T. F. Muir a crime novelist with the first two books of his DCI Andy Gilchrist series published - the first, Eye for an Eye, won the Pitlochry Award for the best crime novel by an unpublished writer, and the second, Hand for a Hand, continues to garner great reviews. He is now working on his next Andy Gilchrist novel, another story suffused with dark alleyways, cobbled streets and all things gruesome.

What made the experience of listening to Life for a Life the most enjoyable?

these are a good series well read a time pretty graphic but that is a thiller for you

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

it keeps you wondering what next is coming

What about David Monteath’s performance did you like?

i like the reader he brings characters to life in voice Gilchrist becomes a person you could see in character

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

as above life for a life

Another great Gilchrist Novel

I really enjoyed this. If you have read the previous three books you will enjoy this. Like the previous novels the book has a good mixture of characters and some very tense scenes. There are some really chilling characters which are well written. Gilchrist also has a new sidekick who is the most irritable and annoying character - definitely a test for his and the readers patience! A good listen - very good performance from the reader. I will certainly keep reading the series.

Great 4th book in the series

So pleased to see book 4 in the series as I thoroughly enjoyed the first 3. Didn't disappoint! Another great book, and pleased to see the same narrator as he really helped me visualise the characters and the settings. Didn't want them to end and really got into the story- found myself really looking forward to the commute to work!

Hoping there will be more......
