Publisher Comments:

Murder on the Telly Lochdubh, a remote village reached only by a one-track lane, nestles serenely amid Scotland's hills...until well-known TV reporter Crystal French races into town in her bright BMW. And Constable Hamish Macbeth, dourly wed to duty instead of the fiancee who dumped him, promptly gives her a summons for reckless driving. Outraged, Crystal makes Macbeth's life a misery with a TV report on policing in the Highlands. When she also rakes up old local scandals for her new hit show, Macbeth notes that someone besides himself might be dead keen to stop her. Then someone does-with stealth and violence. Now, finding out who did it will lead the laconic Macbeth down roads he never envisioned, into a dark story of passion and vengeance...and perhaps a crisis of the heart all his own.

Synopsis:

Blonde, glamorous BBC reporter Crystal French has blown into Lochdubh with Highland Life, a hard-hitting TV show that has more than just the heather shaking. As she roars into town in her bright BMW, her arrival is heralded by a speeding ticket from Constable Hamish Macbeth, in spite of her attempts at bribery and seduction. Out of revenge, her show targets Hamish for public humiliation with a report on policing in the Highlands. She then proceeds to rake up old local scandals to the outrage of the entire village. But when Crystal turns up dead, an apparent suicide that turns out to be murder, the entire village becomes suspect.
