Mrs. Gillespie is famous for being the best maid in the northwest of Sutherland. But to Hamish Macbeth, she is a malicious gossip who bangs around the furniture and clanks pots. When Hamish wins Mrs. Gillespie's services in a church raffle, he spends most of the day trying to avoid her. He doesn't understand how she managed to gain such a fine reputation. Then she is found dead, struck down violently by a metal bucket of water. Knowing Mrs. Gillespie's penchant for gossip, Hamish is sure she delighted in finding out her clients' secrets - which means that everyone whose home she cleaned is a suspect.More

Murder and great entertainment in north Highlands
Up there in this genre. Amusing, gentle (for a murder) and great character development of Hamish Macbeth, constable of tiny Highland village and his life.
Yes. Love his scottish interpretation and accent.
I will listen to more! Only wish I had done them in order.
