Publisher's Summary

Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth is dourer than ever after losing both his promotion and his girl, the loyal Priscilla Halburton-Smythe. A trip to a charming seaside inn with his dog Towser is meant to raise his sagging spirits. Instead he arrives at "Friendly House" to find the ambiance chilling, the food inedible, and his fellow guests less than neighborly. There's an amorous spinster, two tarty girls, a retired military man, a secretive London family, and Bob Harris, who so nags his wife, Doris, that everyone wants to kill him. Then somebody does. Soon Macbeth is called upon to act - to dig into the past and deep into the heart to deliver something more daunting than merely the culprit: justice.

A good mystery with excellent narration

This may be one of favorite Hamish Macbeth Mysteries to date. A good story, plot & characters with good clues, hindsight always makes the clues more fun. What I liked about this book was that the people Hamish had to question were not so rude. I must live in a different parallel because I can't imagine suspects being so rude to the police during a murder investigation. These suspects all lied but at least they weren't obnoxious.

If you like Hamish I think you will like this one.

Usual great characters

Really enjoyed the story and character development, but had to struggle through distraction of narrator. Macbeth's portrayal is so high pitched and thickly accented that it takes great concentration to understand the words.
