Publisher's Summary

Death of a Gossip
When society widow and gossip columnist Lady Jane Winters joined the fishing class, she wasted no time in ruffling the feathers - or was it the fins? - of those around her. Among the victims of her sharp tongue and unladylike manner was Lochdubh Constable Hamish Macbeth. Yet not even Hamish thought someone would permanently silence Lady Jane's shrills - until her strangled body is fished out of the river. Now with the help of the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, Hamish must angle through the choppy waters of the tattler's life to find the murderer. But with a school of suspects who aren't ready to talk and dead women telling no tales, Hamish may be in over his head, for he knows that secrets are dangerous, knowledge is power, and killers usually do strike again.
Death of a Cad
When Priscilla Halburton-Smythe brings her London playwright fiancé home to Lochdubh, everybody in town is delighted…except for love-smitten Constable Hamish Macbeth. Yet his affairs of the 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 many titled party guests as the prime suspects, each with a reason for snuffing out the despicable captain, Hamish must smooth ruffled feathers as he investigates the case. When the hidden culprit strikes again, Hamish will find himself trying to save Priscilla from a miserable marriage - and catch a killer before he flies the coop.

What a character!

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

A person could possibly not like Hamish Macbeth, but then, what the heck would they be reading books for anyway? It's not their thing. If you love character and personality, these books are loaded with it all around, and starting from the beginning of the series is a very good idea.

Hamish MacBeth - the charming Scotsman

Would you consider the audio edition of Death of a Gossip & Death of a Cad to be better than the print version?

I have not read the print version yet...but I love hearing the voice of Hamish. Now I will hear this when I read the print version of the Hamish books.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

I loved it. Double delight. Ten hours went by way too fast. Very likeable character....great storytelling.

Have you listened to any of Antony Ferguson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No...but I would love to hear more.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

MacBeth has murdered sleep. lol

Any additional comments?

The characters were easily recognizable....loved Hamish....can't wait to read/hear the rest of the line. I have read all of the Agatha I am working on Hamish. Well done MC Beaton!
