Hamish Macbeth, the laid-back constable of Lochdubh, Scotland, has a new Land Rover to drive and a Highland summer to savor, but as fast as rain rolls in from the loch, his happy life goes to hell in a handbasket.

The trouble begins when his beloved Priscilla Halburton-Smythe returns from London—with a fiancé on her arm. His miseries multiply when clouds of midges, the diabolical Scottish mosquito, descend on the town. Then a paragon of housewifery named Trixie Thomas moves into Lochdubh with her lapdog husband in tow. The newcomer quickly convinces the local ladies to embrace low-cholesterol meals, ban tobacco, and begin bird-watching. Soon the town’s fish-and-chips-loving men are up in arms.

Now faced with the trials of his own soul, Macbeth must solve Lochdubh’s newest crime: the mysterious poisoning of the perfect wife.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Trixie Thomas, a relentlessly do-gooding Englishwoman arrives in Lochdubh, stirs up trouble, and is promptly killed, her missionary zeal leaving a host of suspects in her wake. Fortunately, Hamish is on hand to find the killer before such unseemly behavior has a chance to spoil the atmosphere.”

    Booklist (starred review)

  • “As the pace of the merry tale quickens, gentle Hamish draws nearer to exposing the surprising killer whose motive is far different from what he expects.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Lively sketches of local characters and village ways. Hamish and Lochdubh continue to charm in a gentle entertainment.”
