The aromas of wild thyme and Highland heather waft through Lochdubh, home to M. C. Beaton’s eccentric policeman, Hamish Macbeth. Yet what the irascible constable smells in his latest case is the acrid scent of fear as an entire town is entrapped in something dark and deadly. Yet, as he deftly investigates the summer’s high crimes and misdemeanors, he attracts the attention of his superiors. They feel a promotion and transfer will give him a larger playing field than Lochdubh, but that’s the last thing Macbeth wants. Now the laconic lawman needs a clever way to quash the move without losing his job entirely.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“All Macbeth’s talents are on display as he performs a heroic rescue, outwits some crooks, and meets violence with violence. For all his nonchalance, the laconic Macbeth does his best to protect his people and preserve his way of life among them. Beaton fans will rejoice.” Publishers Weekly
“The trademark charm of the series—quirky humor, eccentric characters, and dark overtones—is in full swing here; fans will be well pleased, and readers new to Lochdubh can enjoy this as a stand-alone volume.” School Library Journal
“Beaton adds a new twist to the standard murder-in-a-village plot…Another delightful installment in a perennially entertaining series.” Booklist
“Hamish in top form, with intriguing puzzles to solve, the possibility of a new romance, and ever more inventive ways of avoiding a promotion to higher rank and transfer from his beloved Lochdubh.” Kirkus Reviews
