Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth’s life is going to pot. He has—horrors!—been promoted, his new boss is a dunce, and a self-proclaimed traveler named Sean and his girlfriend have parked their rusty eyesore of a van in the middle of the village. Hamish smells trouble, and he’s right, as usual. The doctor’s drugs go missing. Money vanishes. Neighbors suddenly become unneighborly. The tension only explodes after the itinerant Sean is found brutally beaten to death in his camper. Suspicion quickly falls on his girlfriend, but with nobody willing to talk, the canny Hamish faces the tough task of worming the facts out of the villagers. As he uncovers a bizarre story around the murdered traveler, Macbeth knows he must find the truth soon—before the killer gets away for good.

Police Sergeant Hamish Macbeth’s new promotion means more money, but it also means that an eager beaver of a policeman has been thrust upon him, interfering with Hamish’s easygoing way of life. Fans of the lazy Hamish will delight in seeing him pitted against a zealous young officer while solving a disturbing murder.

Quotes & Awards

  • “The vivid setting of the Scottish highlands and Beaton’s skillful handling of Scottish dialogue are vital elements in this readable, enjoyable mystery.”

    Dallas Morning News

  • “Like a brilliant swordsman assailed from three sides, Hamish wards off sneak attacks from his hostile boss, gracefully rids himself of the eager beaver, traces the killer, and tactfully saves the reputation of many a worried villager.”

    Houston Post

  • “Beaton’s wit and her portrayal of an honest policeman enrich the tale.”

    Des Moines Register

  • “Excellent…A cast of winning characters, even the pesky, malaprop Willie…But the star, as always, is the slow-moving, quick-witted Hamish.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Beaton’s eighth mystery featuring Scottish police constable Hamish MacBeth is every bit as charming, humorous, and clever as the first seven…As usual, Beaton makes Lochdubh and its inhabitants come alive; the characters are wonderfully original; the plot is cleverly crafted and intriguing to the end; there’s lots of laugh-aloud humor; and even the darker, bleaker parts of the story (and there are some) only add to its overall appeal.”


  • “Readers will relish a well-paced, warmly sentimental picture of the people—and the character and rich accents—of Lubdoch, as seen through Hamish’s loving eyes. Unpretentious fun for all.”
