A classic title from M. C. Beaton’s New York Times bestselling Hamish Macbeth series
About the best that can be said of wealthy Maggie Baird is
that inside her middle-aged body, there still beats the heart of a beautiful
tart. So when her car catches fire with Maggie in it, there are five likely
suspects right on the premises of her luxurious Highlands cottage. Lochdubh
police constable Hamish Macbeth has to question Maggie’s timid niece and four
former lovers, one of whom Maggie had intended to pick for her husband. All
five are equally poor—with ample motive and opportunity to monkey with Maggie’s
car. Now to find the killer, the astute lawman must apply his extraordinary
insight into human nature. But when the evidence appears to point to the wrong
person entirely, Hamish must dig down deep to stop the real murderer’s escape.
