A dead witness and a forgotten crime-Hamish Macbeth has never had it so hard as he does in this twenty-ninth highlands mystery!When a local Scottish woman tells Sergeant Hamish Macbeth that she doesn't remember what happened the previous evening, he doesn't even begin to worry. She had been out drinking, after all, and he'd prefer not to be bothered with such an arrogant-and annoying-woman. But when her body is discovered, Hamish is forced to investigate a crime that the only known witness, now dead, had forgotten.

"Constable Hamish Macbeth is back, and this time the body count is higher than usual. Fortunately, the charm and humor of this Scottish cozy series continue with the zany locals all accounted for! Narrator Graeme Malcolm energetically captures multiple accents--whether thick burr or melodious lilt. The countless suspects and many victims add to the action and ensuing confusion. The most fun is Hamish's sergeant, who keeps the police house and pets in fine mettle; his voice and priceless comments are highlights as presented by Malcolm. As usual, true love continues to elude poor Hamish, so he (and we) must look to the future for another opportunity. Rest assured, despite all of the action, tranquility returns to the village of Strathbane. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
