Publisher's Summary

Sergeant Hamish Macbeth is alarmed to receive a report from a woman in the small village of Cronish in the Scottish Highlands. She has been brutally attacked and the criminal is on the loose. But upon further investigation, Hamish discovers that she was lying about the crime. So when the same woman calls him back about an intruder, he simply marvels at her compulsion to lie. This time, though, she is telling the truth. Her body is found in her home and Hamish must sort through all of her lies to solve the crime.

Great!!!!

I just love this series! Graeme Malcolm narration is perfection. In fact, I am listening to the last few audiobooks in the series with Malcolm as the narrator because after I'm done with those, I'm done with the "Death of....." series. I adore M. C. Beaton's tales of murder and crime in the Scottish Highlands. I love catching up with the wonderful nutty characters and small village life, but I just can't get into any of the other narrators. No disrespect to those narrators. In my opinion, Beaton and Malcolm are an act that is just too hard to follow!

Another great book

I have always loved the highlands hero, Hamish MacBeth and I'm always rooting for him. This is another great book in the long growing series that I hope never dies. This insert in the series has lots of twists and turns that will keep you on the front of your seat, along with visits for Hamish's old and new flames. Overall another great book by MC Beaton.
