Summary

Summary

A dead witness and a forgotten crime—Hamish Macbeth has never had it so hard as he does in this twenty-ninth highlands mystery!

When a local Scottish woman tells Sergeant Hamish Macbeth that she doesn't remember what happened the previous evening, he doesn't even begin to worry. She had been out drinking, after all, and he'd prefer not to be bothered with such an arrogant—and annoying—woman. But when her body is discovered, Hamish is forced to investigate a crime that the only known witness, now dead, had forgotten.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“You never want to see this character come to an end…There’s never a dull moment in the life of Hamish Macbeth and, thankfully, this author keeps churning out books so Hamish’s fans can sit back and enjoy the fun. A+!" New England News
“Murder once again disrupts Scottish Highlands Sergeant Hamish Macbeth’s quiet routine of loch gazing and tending to his massive dog and wild cat…And as the number of murder victims rises, Macbeth does what he does best: ignore the bureaucratic grumblings of his superiors in the ugly big city of Strathbane, follow his instincts, and demonstrate the fine art of interviewing. Completely satisfying.” Booklist
“Macbeth attempts to solve the crime, but blustery Detective Chief Superintendent Blair keeps ordering him to do the most menial tasks. Meanwhile, Macbeth’s love life has more snags than an old wool sweater…While Macbeth matches wits with a desperate and elusive killer, the dreadful Palfour teens…muddy the investigative waters. Cozy fans are in for a treat.” Publishers Weekly
“Narrator Graeme Malcolm energetically captures multiple accents—whether thick burr or melodious lilt. The countless suspects and many victims add to the action and ensuing confusion. The most fun is Hamish’s sergeant, who keeps the police house and pets in fine mettle; his voice and priceless comments are highlights as presented by Malcolm.” AudioFile
