When Police Sergeant Hamish Macbeth hears reports of a haunted castle near Drim, he assumes the eerie noises and lights reported by the villagers are just local teenagers going there to smoke pot or, worse, inject themselves with drugs. Still, Hamish decides that he and his policeman, Charlie "Clumsy" Carson, will spend the night at the ruined castle to get to the bottom of the rumors once and for all. There's no sign of any ghost...?ut then Charlie disappears through the floor. It turns out he's fallen into the cellar. And what Hamish and Charlie find there is worse than a ghost: a dead body propped against the wall. Waiting for help to arrive, Hamish and Charlie leave the castle just for a moment-to eat bacon baps-but when they return, the body is nowhere to be seen. It's clear something strange-and deadly-is going on at the castle, and Hamish must get to the bottom of it before the "ghost" can strike again.

"This is the 32nd installment in the Hamish Macbeth series--yet listeners can jump right in. Graeme Malcolm's narration fits the somewhat crabby but brilliant Scottish police sergeant perfectly. As Macbeth investigates ghostly noises at an old castle, discovering a corpse in the process, Malcolm captures the voice of every character, male and female, without overplaying the Scottish accents. Experiencing this book on audio presents a wonderful advantage as listeners don't need to wonder how Gaelic words like "Lochdubh" are pronounced. The murders keep occurring, and Macbeth keeps solving them with the help, and hindrance, of his colleagues, friends, and acquaintances. Malcolm's evenly paced narration offers a lovely vehicle for the story. M.M.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine"
