Publisher's Summary

No one in Lochdubh expects Dorothy to stay for long....

She is, after all, entirely unsuitable. She's an uptown girl, used to a fancy lifestyle in the big city of Glasgow. She'll never fit in. And how is that work-shy rogue Hamish Macbeth supposed to get anything done when his new assistant is such a distraction? The village needs a police sergeant who can get on with his job, not one who's constantly swooning over his pretty young constable.

Yet PC Dorothy McIver quickly shows how determined she is to win over the locals, and she certainly seems to bring out the best in Macbeth. Then comes a brutal murder, and the pair find themselves plunged into a tangled web of conspiracy that acquires a sinister strand when the chilling shadow of Glasgow's underworld creeps to the Highlands and the peaceful village of Lochdubh.

Through it all, the bond between Hamish and Dorothy grows ever stronger. Has Hamish Macbeth finally found the love of his life - and can he track down the murderer before any hope he has for a blissful future is destroyed?

Top Hamish

This was lovely really quite sad but as I always seem to cry in my Macbeth books it’s more of the same. Pity it’s the last one.

Welcome back Hamish. My heart is sore.

As a west Highlander, I have lived with and loved Hamish and the gang for three decades. This was a wonderful return, even my 13 yo was exicited waiting for the new book. Beautifully written, warm witty exciting and utterly captivating. i might be a craggy old highlander but this was so poignant it hurt.
Some changes in accents, Pricilla is posher, Hamish more Highland, and the Currie twins as brilliant as ever. please can Blair get a right kicking next time!!. keep on.. Hamish is part of our lives.

Thoroughly enjoyed this

A great new story. Once again, brought to life brilliantly by David Monteath.

I have always loved the Hamish stories, and this one was every bit as good ad all of the previousbooks.
R W Green has done an excellent job of continuing M C Beaton's legacy.

Should there be more books to follow, I wouldn't hesitate to buy and listen to them. Really hope that this isn't the last visit to Loch Dubh!

Welcome back to Lochdubh!

As delightful as ever, with favourite characters and a twisting plot. Having grown up in a village not so far removed from Hamish's beloved village I love the setting and it's various inhabitants though I have no desire to return in person.

Not as good as I was expecting

The narrator seemed to have a different voice and the theme seemed different to the story. I know it's a different writer or at least one different writer but I didn't expect it to be so different. Nevertheless, I still enjoyed it. 4 stars all round instead of 5.

Another great mystery for Hamish.

A very involved murder mystery with more than a few twists, Hamish's nemesis is always in the background, plotting Hamish's ruin, Great story very well read by David Monteath. Could this be Hamish MacBeth's last case?
