"Longing for escape? Tired of waiting for Brigadoon to materialize? Time for a trip to Lochdubh, the scenic, if somnolent, village in the Scottish Highlands where M. C. Beaton sets her beguiling whodunits featuring Constable Hamish Macbeth."--New York Times Book Review
"Hamish Macbeth is that most unusual character, one to whom the reader returns because of his charming flaws. May he never get promoted."--New York Journal of Books
"With residents and a constable so authentic, it won't be long before tourists will be seeking Lochdubh and believing in the reality of Hamish Macbeth as surely as they believed in Sherlock Holmes."--Denver Rocky Mountain News
"Macbeth is the sort of character who slyly grows on you."--Chicago Sun-Times
"Fabulous...as usual, a real gem... a fast-paced story that includes tricks and plotlines galore. From murder to drugs to romance, Beaton provides many new characters while also bringing back some old favorites. Hamish, as always, is a riveting character that sees many things the others cannot, and when the bodies start piling up, Hamish's talents bring everything to a shocking, thrilling close."
"Atmospheric...Few fictional detectives are more appealing than fey, redheaded Hamish with his taste for unsuitable women and no desire to leave his peaceful Scottish Highland home. Series fans and newcomers alike will enjoy spending time with Hamish and the beguiling inhabitants of Lochdubh."--Publishers Weekly
"Fans of the handsome Highlander will delight in his continuing penchant for the wrong women and his utter lack of ambition despite his superior detecting skills, which this complex case puts on handsome display."--Kirkus Reviews
"As entertaining as ever...a page turner...[MC Beaton] is a treasure."--Dreams & Nightmares

Meanwhile the minister's wife is trying to find a good woman to take Hamish in hand after the breakup of his latest relationship. What follows is a complex story about smugglers, a spate of apparently unconnected murders, women scorned and some misguided scheming on the part of most of the series characters.
I enjoyed this latest Hamish Macbeth mystery and loved the way Hamish schemes to stay just ahead of his arch enemy, Blair. As ever the chapter headings are always worth reading. The book is well written and the author manages to bring the disparate plot strands together to make a satisfying whole as well as a unexpected ending. I certainly didn't work out who the murderer was. Hamish Macbeth fans will love this latest episode.
