Publisher's Summary

Pour yourself a bracing cup of tea and prepare to be enthralled as internationally acclaimed author M. C. Beaton updates the classic British Manor House mystery in Death of a Nag. Police constable Hamish Macbeth - loved by mystery fans around the world - is once again on the job in this captivating, colorful and witty whodunit. Macbeth - Lochdubh's one-man police force - is in a foul mood. He's lost his promotion and his fiancée, and, instead of solitude, his vacation at "Friendly House" yields a freshly murdered corpse and an inn full of suspects who each longed to commit the crime. Can Macbeth find the culprit, or will justice prove elusive even for the redoubtable Scot?Davina Porter's narration enlivens Beaton's rich storytelling and makes her generous splashes of local color even more vibrant. Death of a Nag rings with originality and will leave you guessing right up to the cunningly clever final twist.

Dreadful narration

Hamish sounds like he’s from India! What happened to the usual narrator? Truly truly awful

One of the gloomier ones

This particular one seemed less funny overall and dragged a bit for me. However, it did wind up well, with good twists in the plot. I will certainly continue the series in any case, after a short break.
