Summary

Sergeant Hamish Macbeth - Scotland's most quick-witted but unambitious policeman - returns in M. C. Beaton's new mystery in her New York Times best-selling series.
Nobody loves an honest man, or that was what police sergeant Hamish Macbeth tried to tell newcomer Paul English.
Paul attended church in Lochdubh. He told the minister, Mr. Wellington, that his sermons were boring. He told tweedy Mrs. Wellington that she was too fat. Angela Brody was told her detective stories were pap for the masses and it was time she wrote literature instead. He accused Hamish of having dyed his fiery red hair. He told Jessie Currie - who repeated all the last words of her twin sister - that she needed psychiatric help.
"I speak as I find", he bragged. Voices saying, "I could kill that man" could be heard from Lochdubh to Cnothan.
And someone did.
Now Hamish is faced with a bewildering array of suspects. And he's lost the services of his clumsy policeman, Charlie, who has resigned from the force after throwing Chief Inspector Blair into the loch. Can Hamish find the killer on his own?

MC Beaton's done it again.

Hamish Macbeth, true to his form catches the bad guy at the end of the book, but keeps you guessing who the bad guys are until the end of the story.

I don't want to spoil the ending, but several of the loose ends are tied up neat and tidy, leaving a new canvas for the hero at the end of the story.

Another great & gripping book

I can never get tired of these books, the story lines and the narration is perfect and has you spellbound from beginning to end. Can't wait for next one!
