Publisher's Summary

If you haven't already fallen in love with this internationally acclaimed series by M. C. Beaton, then this cunningly-crafted mystery will do the trick. Loaded with authentic Scots dialog vivid enough to make you smell the heather-scented air, Death of a Macho Man is Beaton at her best. Hamish Macbeth - Lochdubh's one-man police force - has suddenly become a prime murder suspect when a belligerent newcomer turns up dead. To save his career, Macbeth must delve into this Macho Man's unsavory past.
Suddenly, suspects are everywhere: a salty fisherman, a reclusive romance writer, a respectable matron, a restauranteur's wife, and even Hamish's ex-fiancee Priscilla Halburton-Smythe and her newest boyfriend.
Fast-paced and loaded with quirky characters, Death of a Macho Man enhances Beaton's glowing reputation.
