I love the Hamish Macbeth series. It is shameful that Hachette Book Group republished an older title, Death of a Glutton, renaming it Death of A Greedy Woman. The review should have made this clear to customers. I'm sure I'm not the only Amazon customer who ordered Death of a Greedy Woman thinking it was an original book in the series. This is both disappointing and makes me feel I have been deceived.

This is a good book, but don't be deceived! This is a re-issue of "Death of a Glutton" from 1993 with a new title. I wish I had known this when I ordered it months ago as a pre-order and had to pay shipping, too! I just received it today, looked at the book, and saw "Previously published as Death of a Glutton" on the bottom of the front cover. It's been a while since I ordered it, but I don't think there was any mention on the Amazon website of this being a re-issuing of an old book. I ordered it because it was advertised as a new Hamish Macbeth mystery, and I have them all. Very disappointing! I'll have to be more careful in the future!

This book was previously published in 1993 as "Death of a Glutton". Its a good story but I wouldn't have bought it if I realized they had just changed the name of a book I had read. Its in the Hamish Macbeth series and I have been reading them in order. I'm disappointed.

Listed as a new book in the series with a new publication date when in fact it is merely a retitled book from 1993. For someone who buys and reads most of the books in the series, a duplicate was not appreciated. It'd be nice if Amazon would sort by copyright date instead of publication date.

I was very dissapointed that this was just a retitled issue of "Death of a Glutton" which I already have.

I have been reading the Hamish Macbeth series in order. All of a sudden, Lugs and Sonsie are gone, Clarry the Cook and Elspeth are gone. The book was just out of context, but the story seemed awfully familiar. Cheap of all cheap tricks - it was "Death of a Glutton" republished - not even altered to put it in context with the series. Very disappointing! Now I am afraid the wonderful cast of characters will be missing in "Death of a Kingfisher". Very disappointing!

If you have read Death of a Glutton don't waste your money on Death of a Greedy Woman - THEY ARE ONE AND THE SAME. I am not the only one to be fooled into thinking I was buying a new book in the Hamish Macbeth series. Sadly, I didn't read the reviews until I had wasted good money on this book. Nowhere in the advertising was it stated that this was a reissue of a previous book under a different title. Like others before me I feel disappointed and deceived. Surely it would not be too much to ask for this to be made clear at point of purchase.

I enjoyed the book but was confused by the reprint under a new name. I also ended up reading the same book twice and was not happy. It really did spoil any enjoyment of the book, and maybe I will discontinue the series. Is the new Death of a Sweep another rename? I read the Death of a Chimney Sweep - and if I'm not mistaken I think it has gone to reprint as well. Looking for a seies I can just simply enjoy without having to solve a mystery of my own...
