When Priscilla Halburton-Smythe brings her London playwright fiancé home to Lochdubh, everybody in town is delighted … except for love-smitten Constable Hamish Macbeth. Yet his affairs of the heart will have to wait. Vile, boorish Captain Bartlett, one of the guests at Priscilla’s engagement party, has just been found murdered—shot while on a grouse hunt. Now with many titled party guests as the prime suspects, each with a reason for snuffing out the despicable captain, Hamish must smooth ruffled feathers as he investigates the case. When the hidden culprit strikes again, Hamish will find himself trying to save Priscilla from a miserable marriage—and catch a killer before he flies the coop.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Beaton’s charming Constable Hamish Macbeth returns in the sequel to Death of a Gossip, a mirthful mystery set in the Scottish highlands…[A] delightful series.” Publishers Weekly
“The author again makes fine use of both the bleak, forbidding terrain of the remote Scottish highlands and a motley cast of local characters. The chivalrous, slothlike Macbeth solves the case while unsuccessfully wooing the Halburton-Smythes’ daughter.” Booklist
“Hamish is a gem.” Kirkus Reviews
