Hamish Macbeth probes a murder beyond belief
As Scotland's laziest police sergeant, Hamish Macbeth, tried to tell newcomer Paul English, nobody loves an honest man.
Paul had moved to Cnothan, a sour village on Hamish's beat. He attended church in Lochdubh. He told the minister, Mr. Wellington, that his sermons were boring. He told Mrs. Wellington she was too fat. Angela Brody was told her detective stories were pap for the masses. He accused Hamish of having dyed his red hair. He told Jessie Currie she needed psychiatric help.
When someone kills Paul, Hamish faces a bewildering array of suspects from Lochdubh to Cnothan. And clumsy Charlie resigned from the police force after he threw blustery Chief Inspector Blair into the loch. Can Hamish find the killer on his own?
“Hamish Macbeth is that most unusual character, one to whom the reader returns because of his charming flaws. May he never get promoted.”—New York Journal of Books
