Hand for a Hand by T. Frank Muir

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.

About the Author

Born in Glasgow, Frank Muir was plagued from a young age with the urge to see more of the world than the rain sodden slopes of the Campsie Fells. Thirty-plus years of living and working overseas helped him appreciate the raw beauty of his home country. Now a dual US/UK citizen, Frank makes his home in the outskirts of Glasgow, Scotland, from where he visits St. Andrews regularly to research in the town’s many pubs and restaurants.

Contains some splashes of crude language (why I said written from a man's point of view). Kidnapping, torture and murder and the culprit is connected to the main character (a Scottish police detective). Pace moves quickly and fairly good character developement of the more prominant characters. I bought this book becsuse the reviewer (newspaper) gave it a good review and it takes place in Scotland (a big interest for me)

A Scots detective is finding a young woman's body parts on the venerated grounds of St Andrews golf course. And the worst part is they may belong to someone in his family, payback for doing his job!
