Occasionally, the rugged landscape of Scotland attracts dreamers who move north, wrapped in fantasies of enjoying the simple life. They usually don't last, defeated by the climate or by inhospitable locals. But it looks as if Effie Garrand has come to stay. When local constable Hamish Macbeth calls on her, he is amazed to find the small woman still in residence after a particularly hideous winter. Unfortunately, Effie is also quite delusional, having convinced herself—and everyone else—that local artist Jock Fleming is in love with her and that they are engaged. After a huge fight with Jock, Effie is found in the mountains, poisoned by antifreeze. Now, it's up to Hamish to find the dreamer's killer—before any more nightmares unfold.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Graeme Malcolm gives a nuanced portrayal of diverse characters inhabiting or visiting a remote village in northern Scotland. Various characters stride across the canvas, and Malcolm essays them all, including a grumpy American, and Englishmen and women from down south…The voice and the setting are so compatible that one settles back and enjoys the story, scarcely noticing the narrator’s expertise.” AudioFile
“Beaton’s flawless twenty-first installment in her popular Hamish Macbeth series boasts amusing local color and singularly savvy sleuthing.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“Beaton is a masterful mixer of disparate elements that result in crime novels that are part police procedural and part psychological thriller…While the plotting itself is intricate and absorbing, Beaton, a Scot herself, excels at giving readers a taste of Highland life and creating a believable character in the lonely, brilliant, continually frustrated-in-love Macbeth. A treat. Booklist (starred review)
“Fans of Hamish will love this combination of mystery and romantic escapades.” Kirkus Reviews
Beaton’s flawless twenty-first installment in her popular Hamish Macbeth series boasts amusing local color and singularly savvy sleuthing.” Publishers Weekly (starred review)
