With this tenth book in a series that fans of British
mysteries have come to relish more than fish ’n’ chips and a pint at the pub,
M. C. Beaton returns with another baffling case for Hamish Macbeth, the
stubborn, red-haired, one-man police department of the Scottish village of
Lochdubh. It has all the local color, wry humor, and splendid
characterizations readers adore.
All Sergeant Hamish Macbeth wants to do is fish and
drink coffee with his fiancée. But when a mysterious stranger moves into the
neighboring village—a rich, unmarried heartbreaker—a rivalry erupts among the
local women, and the men of the village start a slow burn. It is amusing until
death threats, assault, and murder shatter the tranquil countryside. Now Hamish
must investigate the darker side of love and desire. Download and start listening now!
