Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

When Scotland is hit by recession, Police Constable Hamish Macbeth notices that the Highland people are forced to come up with inventive ways to lure tourists to their sleepy towns. The quaint village of Braikie doesn't have much to offer, other than a place of rare beauty called Buchan's Wood, which was bequeathed to the town. A savvy local tourist director renames the woods "The Fairy Glen," and has brochures printed with a beautiful photograph of a kingfisher rising from a pond on the cover. It isn't long before coach tours begin to arrive. But just as the town's luck starts to turn, a kingfisher is found hanging from a branch in the woods with a noose around its neck. As a wave of vandalism threatens to ruin Braikie forever, the town turns to Hamish Macbeth. And when violence strikes again, the lawman's investigation quickly turns from animal cruelty to murder.

A bittersweet pleasure, as this is the most recent book in this series and we'll have to wait another year for more story! Having just recently discovered this author and series, we've enjoyed all 28 visits to the village of Lochdubh in northern Scotland (or "Sutherland" as the Vikings called it when they came south for a break from their weather).

Beaton's storytelling is magical, in that she creates such lively and distinct characters with few words. None of the books has taken us more than several evenings of reading aloud, yet the characters, environment, community, relationships, and murder-of-the-moment are richly detailed and seem quite real.
