The recession has hit Scotland, and police constable Hamish Macbeth notices that the locals are coming up with inventive ways to lure tourists to their sleepy towns. The quaint village of Braikie hasn’t much to offer other than Buchan's Wood, a rare place of beauty, which the savvy tourism director renames “The Fairy Glen.” Promoted by brochures featuring a beautiful kingfisher on the cover, it isn't long before bus tours begin to arrive.
But in Death of a Kingfisher by M.C. Beaton, the town's luck nosedives when trouble starts haunting the glen. As a wave of vandalism threatens to scare tourists away, Hamish's investigation turns from sabotage to murder. Can he catch a killer—before the fairy tale attraction turns permanently grim?

BBC has produced Hamish Macbeth TV programs. I rented all they had from our CD/mail program we are apart of. Im sure you can prob. buy them or rent them as i did. For Americans~ the dialog sp? was a bit tricky to listen to, but once you get acostomed to it, you'll be fine.
just wanted to post this here for all Hamish lovers :)

I love the Hamish McBeth stories, Like reading about The surroundings in the stories. Great twists just when you thinkyou have solved it your person gets murdered. Keep these coming. I to could not put the book down. These are nice easy quick interesting reads. I look forward for new Hamich stories.

another enjoyable M.C.Beaton book...a very quick read as i couldnt put it down....a high body count..love all the trials and tribulations of Hamish Macbeth's life...only wish the book was longer cant wait till the next one..grab a cup of tea and enjoy...
I definitely think this series by M.C. Beaton is her best. I really enjoy the main character and she develops the characters every book as well as the plot. I can actually see this turning into a t.v. series. Every book gets better.

Hamish is once again forced to "be on the job" as some vandalism in the latest tourist attraction in the little town of Braikie escalates to murder. Even tho he has a new underling for assistance, Hamish alone solves the case in typical Beaton style
