Hollywood in the Highlands

With the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe away in London, Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth pines for company during the long Scottish winter. He gets his wish—and more—when a troupe of flashy, urbane filmmakers clambers into the nearby town of Drim. Before long bedlam erupts around their make-believe mystery … and culminates in the sudden appearance of one very real corpse.

The initial suspect in the killing is one Patricia Martyn-Broyd, the aging mystery writer furious that her musty old cozies are getting a risqué face-lift for their television reincarnation. Yet, going behind the scenes, Hamish soon finds a town full of locals bitten by the movie bug and a cast of quarreling show-business types, all harboring their own secrets, lies, and hidden agendas. And as the culprit strikes again, Hamish must quickly find the right killer—or script the wrong finale to a show gone murderously awry.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Beaton’s affectionate wit remains dry and delightful.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “As usual, Beaton shows herself to be a skillful plotter in the classic style—plenty of possible perpetrators, a last-minute surprise or two, and as many twists and turns as a path up a Scottish hillside. But the standout factor remains Macbeth himself—so low-key at the outset that first-time readers will hardly notice him, especially as he slips around Columbo-like, an unglamorous klutz in a glamorous show-biz milieu. But slowly, bits of his personality come to the fore…He wins us over completely, of course, and we keep coming back for more, hoping that Macbeth will triumph, not just with the case at hand but also with the equally vexing demons of daily life.”
