Publisher's Summary

When Hamish Macbeth, local constable of the Scottish village of Lochdubh, tries to break up one of the many fights involving Randy "Macho Man" Duggan, the ruffian challenges him to a fistfight. Everyone expects Macbeth to take a beating from the man who claims to be a professional wrestler, but on the chosen day, Duggan is found shot to death - and Macbeth is the likeliest suspect.
The brutal Macho Man left a trail of fear and hatred in his wake, and Macbeth must find the murderer, clear his name, and restore his Highland paradise to its usual tranquility amid all the excitement.

Book spoiled by poor choice of narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Terrible Scottish accent and unable to carry voices distinct enough for recognizing each character

Hate this Narrator

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love Hamish, and enjoy listening and re-listening to these stories.

How could the performance have been better?

This is the first book I've listened to with this narrator, and his is neither the voice nor the accent to replace Mr. Malcolm as narrator. His reading lacks good phrasing and the rhythm and word stresses are often wrong, distracting from the story.
