When the townspeople of Lochdubh begin receiving poison-pen letters, no one takes them very seriously, even if they are full of wild accusations. But Hamish Macbeth fears that they might lead to something deadly. His instincts prove correct when the town's postmistress is found hanging from a rope with a poison-pen letter at her feet. Though it appears to be a suicide, Hamish suspects something more sinister. Attempting to trace the letters, the last thing Hamish needs is any distractions, but soon Jenny Ogilvie arrives in Lochdubh determined to seduce him. Realizing that she is unable to take Hamish's mind off his case, Jenny decides to do a little investigating of her own. Hamish finds himself in a race to solve the mystery of the poison-pen letters before someone else dies, including one likely target-Jenny.

Professional reviews

"As the latest Hamish Macbeth mystery opens, tensions are mounting in Lochdubh over a series of poison pen letters received by residents. The Scottish constable fails to take the letters seriously until they lead to the murder of a postmistress and a schoolteacher. The real delight here is the interaction of the characters as Macbeth pines for a lost love while two new romantic possibilities appear on the horizon. Graeme Malcolm reads the story with a light touch, and emphasis on the offbeat characters. He gives the Lochdubh residents Highland accents that are recognizable but not heavy. Newcomers and longtime readers alike will enjoy this stop in M.C. Beaton's Lochdubh. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
