The aromas of wild thyme and Highland heather waft through Lochdubh, home to M. C. Beaton's eccentric policeman, Hamish Macbeth. Yet what the irascible constable smells in his latest case is the acrid scent of fear as an entire town is entrapped in something dark and deadly....

Yet as he deftly investigates the summer's high crimes and misdemeanors, he attracts the attention of his superiors. They feel a promotion and transfer will give him a larger playing field than Lochdubh. That's the last thing Macbeth wants. Now the laconic lawman needs a clever way to quash the move without losing his job entirely....

    " Actually listened to the audiobook. It is set in the Highlands. Love the culture and language that the story is wrapped in. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terry | 1/26/2014

    " This was a really good one. I've read several and this one was so entertaining. Some mini stories within the bigger story kept it interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leslie Jem | 1/23/2014

    " Not one of the best in this series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susie Knight | 1/19/2014

    " MC Beaton writes great murder mysteries that take place in Scotland. His detective/policeman is a comical, intelligent but lazy man. Quick, fun reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phyllis | 1/15/2014

    " I've read most of the books in this series, and I always enjoy them. I think that this one was just released in the U.S. and is an earlier one than many I have read in recent years. Highly Recommended. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 1/12/2014

    " Death of a Village by M. C. Beaton (2004) "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sharneel | 1/11/2014

    " I do enjoy reading these books, but it is very evident how formulaic they are. The tenor of the characters and environment are what make them entertaining, especially as an audio book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Susan | 12/9/2013

    " Hamish did not disappoint. Good little book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jess | 11/17/2013

    " Although I thought this was one of the better books in the Death of a ... series (I started out giving it 4 stars), the problem with the missing paragraphs between speakers continued throughout the Kindle edition. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 10/30/2013

    " I have always enjoyed cozies. I like this one because of the setting and the characters are fun. The Scottish Highlands and a policeman who lives in a small village and wants to stay there! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Sampson | 10/15/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna Bartkowski | 10/14/2013

    " I want to read all of the Hamish Macbeth stories! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie Hilton | 9/16/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyrie | 6/26/2013

    " Definitely one of the better Hamish mysteries. Lots of little cases that add up to a lot of attention, that Hamish hates. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzanne | 5/28/2013

    " Another fun Hamish Macbeth book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 4/28/2013

    " This was a great little mystery with the typical wit and humor of the Hamish Macbeth series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 4/11/2013

    " I didn't make a note on this one other than the stars. I do like all the Hamish Macbeth books that I have read so far. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen | 12/18/2012

    " I listened on tape and enjoyed this quite a lot. It was better than some of the others. The characters have become my friends and although some reactions are predictable, they are still endearing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina Marie | 10/16/2012
