The Hamish Macbeth stories are perfect relaxing escapist novels, all centred around the attractive eponymous policeman and his Highland police station in Scotland. I enjoy them as they are amusing and fairly undemanding although occasionally they do suddenly tackle a gruesome murder! If you enjoy Midsomer Murders on TV then you will enjoy all of The Hamish Macbeth novels. Good late night listening with a pleasant Scottish narrator.

David Monteath is a master of the Scottish brogues and gives each character, no matter how heavily featured, just a subtle difference in voice to suggest what they are like, often before they've been described.
The tale gallops along at a fair pace and the characters become so endearing the crimes seem almost secondary.
I would highly recommend listening to any other Hamish Macbeth and in fact, any title read buy Mr Monteath.
Beautiful narrative work.
