Description

Beaton (1936-2019) was the author of both the Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series, as well as numerous Regency romances. Macbeth’s romance radar is on the fritz while he mourns Dorothy’s death, but fans know he won’t be out of the market for long.

Recently acquired by Little, Brown Book Group, Constable publishes a diverse range of bestselling fiction and non-fiction titles. I am a fan of the television program (1995-1997), starring the iconic Robert Carlyle in the title lead, and since many of the storylines in the books were not adapted to the television series, it’s very entertaining to have a favorite character placed into new predicaments as well as seeing how the books differ from the show: Macbeth’s persona, Lochdubh residents, and putting a murder mystery at the center, hence all the “Death of …” titles.

But, sadly, her body is found floating in The Corloch anchored with ropes and rocks; not the outcome for which Hamish hoped. She is consistently the most borrowed UK adult author in British libraries, and her Agatha Raisin books have been turned into a TV series on Sky.But Charles was at school, in London so when he finished and both tired of the long commute to the north of Scotland, they moved to the Cotswolds where Agatha Raisin was created. This Hamish Macbeth novel maintains Beaton's distinctive voice and includes the usual village eccentrics, loads of Scottish lore, and the light humour that Beaton fans have loved through the years. That is, someone took the characters, changed them for their comfort/skill level, wrote something that plays like a shallow echo of the original thing.

Torn between loyalty to his local community and his responsibilities as a police officer, he begins threading his way through a maze of deceit, quickly finding himself on the trail of a ruthless, treacherous murderer.

So when Kate Hibbert disappears after having last been seen struggling along the road with a heavy suitcase, he is convinced she has gone travelling and reluctantly goes through the motions of investigating. The gossipy and opinionated Currie sisters have one outing only, so much of the fun from their dialogue is removed. Although she has been a resident of the sleepy village of Lochdubh for only a year, in that time Kate has alienated one too many of its residents with her interfering—and not entirely well-intentioned—ways.

When none came, she would conjure one up, saying things like, “That sofa’s seen better days, has it not, Gregor? In this addition to a New York Times bestselling mystery series, Sergeant Hamish Macbeth—Scotland's most quick-witted but unambitious policeman—investigates the disappearance of a local woman who is more than she seems. Clara had a fine, strong back on her and was well able to carry a sackload of peat down the brae to their cottage from where they cut it further up the hill. Greene has captured the essence of Lochdubh and its inhabitants, keeping the lightness of heart Hamish’s stories have always had while building strong characters, new and old.I enjoyed the book, it's always a worry when Hamish's beloved pets are hurt, you know he'll do anything to capture the baddie.
