Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When a local woman tells Sergeant Hamish Macbeth that she doesn't remember what happened the previous evening, he doesn't begin to worry. She had been out drinking, after all, and he'd prefer not to be bothered with such an arrogant and annoying woman. But when her body is discovered, Hamish is forced to investigate a crime that the only known witness--now dead--had forgotten.

Review:

"Near the start of Beaton's delightful 29th Hamish Macbeth mystery (after 2012's Death of a Kingfisher), art student Morag Merrilea complains to the Scottish police sergeant about the theft of her sketchbook in a pub where she was drinking heavily one night. When Morag disappears and later turns up dead, Macbeth attempts to solve the crime, but blustery Detective Chief Superintendent Blair keeps ordering him to do the most menial tasks. Meanwhile, Macbeth's love life has more snags than an old wool sweater, as shown by his strained relationships with Priscilla Halburton-Smythe and Elspeth Grant, not to mention his infatuation with Hannah Fleming, the sister of suspect Geordie Fleming. A second victim found by Macbeth ups the pressure and media interest. While Macbeth matches wits with a desperate and elusive killer, the dreadful Palfour teens from Death of a Kingfisher, Olivia and Charles, muddy the investigative waters. Cozy fans are in for a treat. Agent: Barbara Lowenstein, Lowenstein Associates." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Hamish Macbeth #29 (2013 addition to the mystery series)
Unabridged audio narrated by Graeme Malcolm
After the first moments of the narrator speaking over harsh jangly intro music, this book was wonderful! I enjoyed Mr. Malcolm's rendition of various accents, and he was able to differentiate among characters without making any of them sound too extreme. The story was up to Beaton's high standards for this series; each book seems like a visit to Lochdubh to see old friends. Having read the first 28 books in only a few months, I am now reduced to waiting a year for each new addition, and it's difficult!
