Independant-spirited Constable Hamish Macbeth - Lochdubh's one-man police force - has his hands full after a glitzy TV company arrives in search of higher ratings. Ever since a British television crew began filming a mystery series nearby Castle Drim, Hamish has watched tension building. Middle-aged townsfolk and flashy filmmakers are clashing, the younger locals are vying for bit parts, and rumors are flying about vicious quarrels among the crew. But trouble really escalates after one of the scriptwriters is found dead, and Hamish discovers a full cast of suspects lurking behind the scenes.
Mystery fans around the world are captivated with M. C. Beaton's cunning humor, quirky characters, and vibrant local color.

Another great story

Hamish never disappoints- a great murder mystery , they are all so easy to listen too . Only moan, I didn't like a female narrator reading a Hamish story.

Hamish Macbeth

Where does Death of a Scriptwriter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Nicely read, well written whodunnit. Quite a clever, meta story too as these books were made into an inoffensive sunday evening tv show. This is the story of an author's mystery novels being turned into a sunday evening tv show, and the murderous consequences.
