Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The Hamish Macbeth stories always abound with heart, and Death of a Celebrity is no exception. The dour Macbeth well knows the foibles of human nature, giving this straightforward series warmth.” RT Book Reviews (4 stars)
“Goes down like the finest single malt whisky, leaving a nice gasp and glow in its wake…Mostly, the satisfaction the reader gets in these mysteries comes from Beaton’s sly send-up of the petri dish of village life: the jealousies, maneuverings, and longstanding grudges that crawl just beneath the civilized surface and bubble up into violence…A new Beaton is a cause for celebration.” Booklist (starred review)
“Stodgy ‘town bobby’ Hamish protects and serves the quaint Scottish highlands village of Lochdubh—which sees a lot of crime for a one-horse town—and outwits the Strathbane big-city police in this story of multiple murders and TV ratings…With teasing epigrams at the start of each chapter, a good dose of Britishisms, and light suspense that carries through details both quotidian (Hamish’s traffic patrol and his dog Lugs) and faintly exotic (psychics and gypsies), this book is one to be enjoyed with a nice cup of tea and a biscuit.” Publishers Weekly
“A great series.” Library Journal
“A treat for Hamish’s legion of fans.” Kirkus Reviews
