Description

Amazing news has spread across the Scottish countryside. The most famous of highland bachelors, police sergeant Hamish Macbeth, will be married at last. Everyone in the village of Lochdubh adores Josie McSween, Macbeth's newest constable and blushing bride-to-be.

While locals think Josie is quite a catch, Hamish has a case of prenuptial jitters. After all, if it weren't for the recent murder of a beautiful woman in a neighboring village, there wouldn't be a wedding at all. For it was a mysterious Valentine's Day package—delivered to the victim before her death—that initially drew Hamish and Josie together on the investigation. As they work side by side, Hamish and Josie soon discover that the woman's list of admirers was endless, confirming Hamish's suspicion that love can be blind, deaf, and deadly.

        March 29, 2010
        The news has spread quickly that the charming, much sought after police sergeant Hamish Macbeth is to marry his constable, Josie McSween, in the Scottish village of Lochdubh—but their latest case, the one that brought them together in the first place, is unraveling so quickly and dangerously that their lives—not to mention their engagement—are soon in jeopardy. Haughty, clipped, with shades of radio drama, the hokey narration by Graeme Malcolm is a disappointment, but considering the quality of the writing, it shouldn't be much of a surprise. Malcolm has little to work with in this lackluster thriller, which offers an abundance of mystery genre clichés that go from charming and nostalgic to downright annoying in a hurry. A Grand Central hardcover (Reviews, Nov. 9).

      • premium: True

      • content: Fans will welcome the latest in the Hamish Macbeth mysteries, which opens to find him standing at the altar waiting miserably to be wed to his constable, Josie McSween, and praying to God that someone or something will intervene. Several murders have been solved earlier in the series, and between those crimes, taking care of his "beasties," and the intrusion of Josie, Macbeth has had his hands full. Graeme Malcolm has a great way with the accents of Lochdubh, Scotland, and he has a wonderful vocal timbre. His timing is impeccable, especially when he delivers the many humorous moments that Beaton's series is known for. Listeners will be unable to keep from smiling as Macbeth endures one calamity after another. S.S.R. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
