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.

Hamish Never Disappoints.

Would you consider the audio edition of Death of a Village to be better than the print version?

Haven't read the print version, but good writting losses nothing when the narrator is excellent.

What did you like best about this story?

Hamish is quirky and beight and knows what he likes, so too do I. The author understands human nature very well and has a great sense of humor. Like a lot of folks, his relationships with women friends is a bit stunted.

Which character – as performed by Graeme Malcolm – was your favorite?

Hamish, for sure.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I never listen to any book in one sitting. I use audible books to be able to read while doing other things.

Any additional comments?

Never miss a Hamish McBeth mystery and hope Ms Beaton remains healthy and happy for many years.
