Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Scottish constable Hamish Macbeth, following Death of a Gossip in his seventh case, once again nails a murderer despite the crude bullying and dim detecting of his nemesis and superior, Chief Detective Inspector Blair.” Publishers Weekly
“[Hamish] cadges a nip or two at the hotel, walks his dog, and helps his lumpen superiors when murder strikes—which, in the sure hands of the prolific Beaton, occurs at an alarming rate…A case that Hamish Macbeth fans will relish.” Booklist
