Born in Glasgow and now a dual UK/US citizen, T.F. Muir is the author of the DCI Andy Gilchrist series - the first of which, Eye For An Eye, won the Pitlochry Award for the best crime novel by an unpublished writer, and the second, Hand For A Hand, continues to garner great reviews.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 Gilchrist novel, another story suffused with dark alleyways, cobbled streets and all things gruesome.
DCI Gilchrist is a thoughtful, believable character, leading a well-rounded team. Muir knows what he's about . . . A truly gripping read, with all the makings of a classic seriesRebus did it for Edinburgh. Laidlaw did it for Glasgow. Gilchrist might just be the bloke to put St Andrews on the crime fiction map - Daily RecordA bright new recruit to the swelling army of Scots crime writersGripping and grisly, with plenty of twists and turns that race along with black humourGilchrist is intriguing, bleak and vulnerable . . . if I were living in St Andrews I'd sleep with the lights on
