Returning from a disappointing foreign holiday, police constable Hamish Macbeth is worried. He learns that a newcomer, Catriona Beldame, is regarded as a witch and various men have been seen visiting her. Hamish himself is charmed by her until he finds out that she has been supplying dangerous potions. At first the villagers won’t listen to him, saying that the loveless Hamish has turned against all women.

When Beldame is found murdered and her home set ablaze, he must clear his own name and then work to solve yet another murder to bring peace and quiet back to his beloved village. His investigations are complicated by a romance with a female forensic expert. Perhaps the Scottish Highlands’ most stubborn bachelor will get married at last!

    Chicago Sun-Times

    Houston Chronicle

    " it's okay. latest in a very long list of hamish macbeth books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Robbin | 2/10/2014

    " I enjoyed this book even though it was not my typical type of mystery. I generally like blood and gore. This was a bit on the humorous side. The ending was unexpected to me. You would think that Hamish MacBeth was a 60 year old man the way he lives, but he is only in his 30s. I will probably read more of this series at a later date. "

    " Another good Hamish MacBeth tale. A gentle read. "

    " Hamish Macbeth is an interesting character and the setting in the Scottish highlands is great - a completely different perspective and character from Beaton's Agatha Raisin series. The reasoning for the killing is clever as well. However, the story seems to needlessly continue on after the murderer is discovered. Beaton tries to tie up other side issues that seemed to drag the story on beyond a normal stopping point. Will give another Macbeth story a try though. "
