Publisher's Summary

The aromas of wild thyme and Highland heather waft through Lochdubh, home to M. C. Beaton's eccentric policeman, Hamish Macbeth. Yet what the irascible constable smells in his latest case is the acrid scent of fear as an entire town is entrapped in something dark and deadly....
Yet as he deftly investigates the summer's high crimes and misdemeanors, he attracts the attention of his superiors. They feel a promotion and transfer will give him a larger playing field than Lochdubh. That's the last thing Macbeth wants. Now the laconic lawman needs a clever way to quash the move without losing his job entirely....

Comfort Reading

What did you love best about Death of a Village?

I love anything by M.C. Beaton. Ok - maybe not the sexiest series, but I call the Hamish Macbeth series "comfort reading". Ms. Beaton has a great sense of humor and heartwarming characters. Totally in love with Lochdubh.

What about Graeme Malcolm’s performance did you like?

Graeme Malcolm as Hamish Macbeth is the best! He nails it.

One of the best

Any additional comments?

I have been a very long Beaton fan. This one breaks a little cadence and has some more twists in it. If you like Hamish, you will love this one.
