A Stranger in Lochdubh,
This review is from: Death of a Travelling Man (Hamish Macbeth) (Paperback)
Two travelling people in a converted bus decide to settle in Lochdubh. Hamish Macbeth takes a dislike to Sean on site and believes he is trouble. He seems to be having a bad effect on the village and people are looking at each other in suspicion when drugs go missing from the doctor's surgery and money goes missing from a charity collection. Then Sean is found murdered and his girlfriend, Cheryl, disappears.
Hamish is struggling with his promotion to sergeant and finds his sidekick, Willie Lamont, a less than satisfactory constable. No one in the village will tell him what's going on so he has his work cut out to try and unravel the mystery which surrounds the village, as well as unmasking the murderer and discovering why some of the respectable ladies seem to be in fear of their lives.
This is an interesting story though perhaps not as good as some of the books in this series. I did enjoy it and found the way Hamish managed to solve the problems very well done. An enjoyable read but perhaps not up to the standard set by some of the series.
