When Fergus Macleod, Lochdubh's abusive, drunk dustman is put in charge of the local recycling center, Hamish Macbeth smells trouble. Sure enough, Fergus, imbued with his new powers, becomes a bullying tyrant. When his body is found stuffed in a recycling bin, no one is sorry - including his long-suffering family. But Macbeth is surprised to find that many of the despicable dustman's victims refuse to talk - and when violence strikes again, the lanky lawman must quickly unearth the culprit among a litter of suspects... before the killer makes a clean getaway!

Relaxing and Humerous

If you have enjoyed earlier Hamish MacBeth stories, I believe you will enjoy this one.

These are gentle, well plotted, humorous mysteries. They take place in a highland village populated by a colorful group of people. Hamish is a very clever policeman who seems lazy to some of his superiors because he doesn't want to be promoted and forced to move to a city. Gentle humor is woven into the story. If you are paying attention, you will smile, and possibly chuckle.

This is not an action packed thriller. It is a "cozy" in the best sense of the word.
