Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Malcolm’s lovely, rich voice carries the story well, offering a narration that flows over listeners, seducing and readying us to experience the story. His accents are delicious, richly Scottish, round, broad, and just slightly lilting during the dialogue and a smoky deep British (or maybe Scottish lite) during narrative sections. So expert is he that changes in character voices are exquisitely deft, mixing like a conversation in a café into a lovely blend of people you want to spend more time with. This is the best kind of reading—one that opens the story, pulling us into the plot and then fading into the background, creating an enveloping and luxuriant aural experience.” Booklist (starred audio review)
“Graeme Malcolm’s brisk narration suits the pace of the novel…He gives Macbeth a low, occasionally gruff voice and a restrained manner that contrast nicely the constable’s dry humor.” AudioFile
“In bestseller Beaton’s devilishly droll twenty-four mystery…could a serial killer be loose in sleepy Lochdubh? As usual, Beaton’s crisp plotting and effervescent humor complement Macbeth’s deft crime solving.” Publishers Weekly
“It’s always a pleasure to return to Lochdubh, the picturesque village in the Scottish highlands.” New York Times Book Review, praise for the series
“Macbeth is the sort of charcter who slyly grows on you…as you realize that beneath his unassuming exterior, he’s a whiz at cutting through all the hokum.” Chicago Sun-Times, praise for the series
