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. The 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.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Gertie | 2/8/2014

    " I'm working my way through this series and the murders are becoming more gruesome as more and more bodies pile up as the story goes on. I wouldn't classify this as a cozy mystery like I would for the earlier books in the series. Overall I liked the story. It seems like, finally, the focus is shifted off of his will he/won't he love triangle between Hamish, Priscilla, and Elsbeth. "
