Publisher's Summary

Not bored to death but murder most foul...

Celebrated author John Heppel is known in Lochdubh as a self-important bore, prone to belittling the scribblings of the locals in his creative writing class. So when he's found dead, his mouth oozing ink, it seems a fitting fate. But for PC Hamish Macbeth, the murder is more than a disruption of idyllic village life - especially when the media arrive, trailing in their wake DCI Heather Meikle, a maneater with a taste for bachelor police constables.

Hamish must rekindle an old flame to escape her clutches and pull out all the stops to find the killer.

Love Mcbeth

I just love this series it’s so well written. So funny and sometimes a bit scary although not often. And David Monteath does the characters voices are wonderful. And to top it off the Scottish voices are delightful. Ten ⭐️

Bonus Chapter

There’s a “bonus” at the end of this book.
The first chapter of the next book in the series is appended to this audiobook.
I haven’t seen that done before.
Is this just for the audiobook or is it a faithful reproduction of the hardcopy?

another good Hamish macbeth story

Everyone could have done it and while I was surprised at who the murderer was I didn't really care why he did it. sideline stories were more interesting
