Mystery fans around the world have come to love police constable Hamish Macbeth-the red-haired, one-man police force of Scotland's Lochdubh. M.C. Beaton's splendid characterizations, vibrant local color, and wry humor are the hallmarks of this internationally-acclaimed British series. When the dashing Peter Hynd arrives in the backwater village of Drim, the local matrons overflow the town's only fitness class, and buy out the local store's hair coloring. Hamish isn't surprised that Hynd is soon missing, and a body has been found . until he finds the corpse is not the charming man he expects. Can Macbeth find the murderer and the missing man, or will the dour, crablike men of Drim keep their secrets and commit the perfect crime? Davina Porter's lyrical voice and distinctive Scottish accents will leave you hungering for a plate of scones and a strong cup of tea.
