With their engaging plots, mellow Scottish ambiance, and droll humor, the Hamish Macbeth mysteries always provide readers a bonnie time. The charming antics of their hopelessly unambitious and love-crossed hero have earned the series a dedicated following. Death of an Addict continues the Hamish Macbeth tradition of superb entertainment, with some fascinating twists.

When a recovering addict dies while recuperating near Lochdubh, our red-headed hero suspects foul play. To complete his investigation, Constable Macbeth must leave his idyllic home and travel to Amsterdam to match wits with big-time drug dealers.

Fans will enjoy seeing a new, tougher side of Macbeth as he dons smart suits and falls in love with his gorgeous superior officer.

With her authentic accents and impeccable timing, narrator Davina Porter provides the perfect voice for this series' wonderfully quirky characters. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Love Hamish Macbeth! Can’t wait for the next book to be published. It seems M.C. Beaton aka Marion Chesney never lacks the inspiration for a good story. I even liked the BBC series although it was way too short and Robert Carlyle looked nothing like his character as described in the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 4/26/2011

    " None of these books are literary masterpieces, but they are lots of fun to read. This one was one of my favorites. "

    " good fast read with good characters but sad ending "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 4/8/2010

    " Not my favorite, too much Miami Vice in the Highlands. Drug Lords, seamy big town crime. Not my cuppa. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 3/16/2010

    " Nice mystery set in the Scottish Highlands--I liked the detective, Hamish Macbeth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patricia | 2/16/2010

    " sigh...Would *I* marry Hamish Macbeth if he asked me? I don't know, but I surely would be mightily tempted! This was an enjoyable episode in the series. (listened on audio-book) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 MaryLou | 2/10/2010

    " As always Hamish MacBeth is delightful. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 10/17/2009

    " Hamish goes undercover! (And does a fantastic job!) If only someone at HQ didn't have it in for our favorite Highland detective. . . . "

    " I love those Hamish Macbeth mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenn | 8/27/2009

    " One of my favorites of the series! Hamish has to go undercover twice and gets his cover blown with near-deadly repercussions - it's a very exciting and different installment that has Hamish away from Lochdubh and all the usual suspects there and investigating the drug underground. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Monika | 7/6/2009

    " M.C. Beaton's Hamish Macbeth series is a great, quick read.... I appreciate the hint of chemistry with out the explicit details. The mysteries are fun to unravel with Hamish. I only wish I could hear him speak! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 3/19/2009

    " I think that these books just keep getting better and better! I told Kevin that reading them is almost like watching a crime television series. I know all the characters, the location etc. Fun read:) "
