The first book in a taut, action-packed new series set in St. Andrews, Scotland.
Murder. It’s the only word in a note clutched by the dismembered hand found on the lush green of a golf course in St. Andrews, Scotland. When DCI Andy Gilchrist learns the note is addressed to him, he realizes the thing he feared most has come to pass: a killer is deliberately targeting him. Though Gilchrist is no new hand at solving murders, this time he is overwhelmed by the flood of seemingly unconnected crises—the note clutched in the hand, his son’s missing girlfriend, his ex-wife’s failing health, and his boss’s decision to pair Gilchrist up with a scumbag detective from his past, who in turn is hiding evidence. Worse, the hand turns out to be just the beginning, and soon he’s faced with relentless parade of body parts.

From Publishers Weekly

Sep 10, 2012 – Scottish author Muir makes his U.S. debut with a ploddingly predictable whodunit, his second to feature Fife Det. Chief Insp. Andy Gilchrist (after Eye for an Eye). When a woman s severed hand is found clutching a note addressed to Gilchrist on the 17th hole of St. Andrews Old Course, he s determined not only to head the investigation but to identify the victim. As more body parts spring up on the golf course, each with dire messages for Gilchrist, it s clear that the killer is targeting him. Gilchrist s rocky relationship with his grown children, Jack and Maureen, becomes even more fraught after the murdered woman is identified as Chloe Fullerton, Jack s girlfriend, making the detective positive that his daughter will be the next target. While Gilchrist and his team scramble to identify which criminal might hold such a grudge, Gilchrist spends too much of his time blustering about a case that most readers will have cracked early on.
