The Dentist

The Dentist by Tim Sullivan Book Summary

Who was the unknown man whose weather-beaten body is discovered on Clifton Downs? Did the tragedy that led to a life on the streets also lead to his death?

His police colleagues may dismiss it as a squabble among Bristol’s homeless community, but Detective Sergeant George Cross is not convinced. An outsider himself, Cross’s obsession with logic, detail and patterns does not always endear him to those who have to work alongside him—or his superiors.

But he has the best conviction rate in the Avon & Somerset Constabulary. By far.

As he delves into the dead man’s past, Cross becomes convinced that to catch this killer, he needs to solve a cold case murder from years before.

A murder that someone has spent fifteen years thinking they’ve got away with.

And they have no intention of letting one eccentric, socially-awkward detective, change that now…

“The young woman standing in front of him was smiling.  Cross was sure of this as her mouth was turned up at both corners, which was a definite sign.  He wasn’t sure what it meant though, because he didn’t know her.  With people he knew he would note the upturned mouth, together with what had been said, combine it with the tone in which it had been said and make his inference. Context was everything for Cross. His interpreter.”

- Loved!5 star

Very much enjoyed this book. I felt it could have done without some very long explanation of things but was worth the read (even if I glanced over those).

- Well done...5 star

From the very first page the Cross detective had my attention. The author’s description of the Detective foibles were engrossing and very engaging. A Great Read!

I loved the main character DS cross. The characters were well developed and quite human. The plot was carefully thought out. I enjoyed it thoroughly and will definitely purchase some of the other books in the series.

- Twisted Murder Mystery Book5 star

This was a very enjoyable, interesting, twister murder mystery book. It was good to read about a successful individual with Asperger in a professional field and how his though process was. This book showed you how to be patient with this individual. Also, it showed how even the good guy can be corrupt and still get caught. would highly recommend you add this to your reading list.

- The Dentist5 star

Different kind of murder mystery. Glad he solved the case. Enjoyed the book to much info at times not to the point. But that’s me.

- Great main character, A bit wordy4 star

A great profile of a person affected with a inherited illness that affects his ability to socially interact. He uses his intellect and personality traits to solve crimes. Good plot but long in reading.

- The Dentist5 star

Excellent read. Provides some insight into working mind of one with Asperger’s syndrome. Really good book.

- Outstanding!5 star

I really loved DS Cross. Great crime and wonderful character development. If you are a fan of Monk, Bones, or the Good Doctor you will certainly enjoy this detective. Looking forward to the next book.

- The Dentist5 star

Really enjoyed George Cross, his character and his nuances were refreshing and quite humorous at points. He was a character I had to warm up to and get to learn which made him more realistic and effectively had me cheering him on, cringing, smiling, shaking my head and rolling my eyes as the story went on. I look forward to reading the next instalment. Debbie x

- Refreshing character DC Cross5 star

I love DC Cross! It is great to read a crime thriller with a detective who processes things differently. Can’t help but chuckle sometimes. Good on his partner who tries hard to understand him. The case it self is very interesting. Plot is very well thought out. Can’t wait to read the next book.

Brilliant book - the best I have read for a long time - well written and held my attention all the way through ! I’m hard to please and get bored easily - EXCELLENT. I have preordered The Cyclist’. Tim please write more ASAP !

- A good read3 star

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and couldn’t put it down. The characters and story were really well written. I was disappointed with a couple of continuity errors though, if they hadn’t been there would have been 5*.

- Good story4 star

Interesting detective - unusual

- Intriguing characters and story5 star

I am an impatient reader and all too often I get bored with a book and just want to find out the end of the story. I will then just skip to the final chapter to check who done it and not bother with all the dull chapters in between. In contrast to those boring books I found every page of “The Dentist” to be engrossing. Read it for yourself, you will not be disappointed.
