Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Scotland's most laconic and low-tech policeman, Hamish Macbeth, is back investigating a poison pen writer whose letters seem to be resulting in murder. At first, the poison pen letters that the Lochdubh townspeople are receiving seem harmless, full of wild accusations that bear no resemblance to the truth. But Hamish fears that their end result might be something deadly--and he is proven right when the town's postmistress is found dead, hanging from a rope with a poison pen letter at her feet. Her death appears to be a suicide, but Hamish suspects something more sinister. He traces the poison pen letters to the head mistress at a local school, but she is dead when Hamish arrives--the victim of a brutal stabbing. Meanwhile, Jenny Ogilvie arrives in Lochdubh with plans to seduce Hamish. Terribly jealous of her friend Pricilla, Hamish's ex-fiancee, Jenny decides to travel to Lochdubh and get him to marry her. But when she shows up at his doorstep he has other things on his mind, including Elspeth, a local town reporter who once tried to win Hamish's affections for herself. Seeing that she may not be able to take Hamish's mind away from his case, Jenny decides to do a little snooping into the murders herself. Now Hamish finds himself having to worry about both Jenny and solving the mystery of the poison pen murders.

Synopsis:

The last in Beaton's Hamish Macbeth series, "Death of a Village," received glowing reviews from such publications as the "New York Times Book Review, Kirkus Reviews, Chicago Sun-Times, Philadelphia Inquirer," and "Booklist," among others.
