Mrs. Gillespie is famous for being the best maid in the northwest of Sutherland. But to Hamish Macbeth, she is a malicious gossip who bangs around the furniture and clanks pots. When Hamish wins Mrs. Gillespie’s services in a church raffle, he spends most of the day trying to avoid her. He doesn’t understand how she managed to gain such a fine reputation. Then she is found dead, struck down violently by a metal bucket of water. Knowing Mrs. Gillespie’s penchant for gossip, Hamish is sure she delighted in finding out her clients’ secrets—which means that everyone whose home she cleaned is a suspect.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Macbeth…remains as charming a hero as ever in this funny, unpredictable read.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Born in Scotland, Malcolm…is comfortable with local accents. His reading of Macbeth’s lines is suitably laid-back and soft-spoken; he sharpens his inflections to indicate the constable’s annoyance. He portrays the women in lighter rather than higher tones and easily differentiates between British and Scottish speakers.”

    Booklist, audio review

  • “Macbeth’s investigation uncovers, as usual, secrets seemingly worth defending with murder. As usual, Beaton delivers a delightfully old-fashioned, absorbing village mystery.”


  • “Hamish Macbeth rides to the rescue of the Highland village of Lochdubh, which once again has more than its share of homicides…The faithful won’t mind that Hamish’s amours this time take second place to his detecting skills.”
