Hamish Macbeth, constable in the small Scottish Highland town of Lochdubh, is feeling down after losing both his promotion and his girlfriend, the town beauty, Priscilla Halbourton-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 flirty 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.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A standout. The plot is even better than usual…Hamish uses brains, intuition, and a keen understanding of human nature—as well as plenty of shoe leather—to ferret out the unlikely killer. A fine, well-told police procedural with plenty of human interest, Beaton’s latest will appeal to a wide range of mystery fans.”  Booklist
“After a…body is found floating in the river Skag, Hamish is the prime suspect…Some holiday. Beaton has fine-tuned her MacBeth series into something altogether winning. In this eleventh entry, her plot is top-notch, a few somber notes demonstrate her touch for understated compassion, and, as always, Hamish and his highland cohorts are lovingly rendered.” Publishers Weekly
