Book Description

The First four titles in the Hamish Macbeth series at a great price.


DEATH OF A GOSSIP: When society widow and gossip columnist Lady Jane Winters joins the local fishing class she wastes no time in ruffling feathers - or should that be fins? - of those around her.Among the victims of her sharp tongue is Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth, yet not even Hamish thinks someone would seriously want to silence Lady Jane's shrill voice permanently - until her strangled body is fished out of the river.Now with the help of the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, Hamish must steer a course through the choppy waters of the tattler's life to find a murderer. But with a school of suspects who aren't willing to talk, and the dead woman telling no tales, Hamish may well be in over his head for he knows that secrets are dangerous, knowledge is power, and killers when cornered usually do strike again.

DEATH OF A CAD: When Priscilla Halburton-Smythe brings her London playwright fiancé home to Lochdubh, everyone in town is delighted... except for love-smitten Hamish Macbeth. Yet the affairs of his heart will have to wait.Vile, boorish Captain Bartlett, one of the guests at Priscilla's engagement party, has just been found murdered - shot while on a grouse hunt. Now with so many titled party guests as prime suspects, each with their own reason for snuffing out the despicable captain, Hamish must smooth ruffled feathers as he investigates the case... and catch a killer, before they fly the coop!

DEATH OF AN OUTSIDER: The most hated man in the most dour town in Scotland is sleeping with the fishes, or - more accurately - has been dumped into a tank filled with crustaceans. All that remains of the murdered victim are his bones. But once the lobsters have been shipped off to Britain's best restaurants, the whole affair quickly lands on the plate of Constable Hamish Macbeth.Exiled to the dreary outpost of Cnothan, Macbeth sorely misses his beloved Lochdubh, but before he can head back home he has to contend with a detective chief inspector who wants the murder hushed up, a dark-haired lassie who is out to seduce him, and a killer who has made mincemeat of his last victim, and will no doubt strike again...

DEATH OF A PERFECT WIFE: Hamish Macbeth is savouring the delights of a Highland summer, but as fast as the rain rolls in from the loch his happy life goes to hell in a handbasket.The trouble begins when his beloved Priscilla Halburton-Smythe returns to Lochdubh with a new fiancé on her arm. His miseries multiply when clouds of midges descend on the town. And then a paragon of housewife perfection named Trixie Thomas moves into Lochdubh with her cowed husband in tow.The newcomer quickly convinces the local ladies to embrace low-cholesterol meals, ban alcohol and begin bird-watching. Soon the town's menfolk are up in arms and Macbeth must solve Lochdubh's newest crime - the mysterious poisoning of the perfect wife.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hamish Macbeth December 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose 5 stars for these books because the characters are alive and colourful and the stories are clever. I have continued with the series and will probably read all the books. I especially like Hamish's contented view of his life and love of his village and his relationship with the people in it. It's a pity he never gets the girl, but does he really want her? He only really ever wanted central heating at the police station, and Pricilla to play Watson to his Sherlock.

Hamish Macbeth is just one of the marvelous names that Beaton comes up with in these four books, which are a fun and friendly introduction to small town life in the Highlands of Scotland. I will be following Hamish's further adventures as a pleasant escape from modern day troubles.

The characters and setting of Hamish Macbeth and the area of Lochdubh and the highlands of Scotland that one can see in the TV series were very evident in the Omnibus. Well worth the read. One gets to see how the TV series were inspired.
