Publisher's Summary

When Priscilla Halburton-Smythe brings her London playwright fiancé home to Lochdubh, everyone in town is delighted…except for love-smitten Hamish Macbeth. Yet the affairs of his heart will have to wait. Vile, boorish Captain Bartlett, one of the guests at Priscilla’s engagement party, has just been found murdered - shot while on a grouse hunt. Now, with so many titled party guests as prime suspects, each with their own reason for snuffing out the despicable captain, Hamish must smooth ruffled feathers as he investigates the case…and catch a killer, before they fly the coop!
M. C. Beaton is the author of the best-selling Agatha Raisin series. She has also written several Regency romance series. She lives between Paris and the Cotswolds.

A good story

Death of a cad is a good yarn and M C Beaton has written an improved book on her first Hamish McBeth novel.

Good yarn

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Step back in time to a gentler time. Hamish is fun and a cool guy.
It's a gentle romp.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Guessed the killer

Did David Monteath do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

Pure Joy

Yet again another thoroughly enjoyable read. A storyline with many twists and turns keeps the reader enthralled right to the end.
