Description
When Priscilla Halburton-Smythe brings her London playwright fiancé home to Lochdubh, everybody in town is delighted ... except for love-smitten Constable Hamish Macbeth. Yet his affairs of the heart will have to wait. Vile, boorish Captain Bartlett, one of the guests at Priscilla's engagement party, has just been found murdered—shot while on a grouse hunt. Now with many titled party guests as the prime suspects, each with a reason for snuffing out the despicable captain, Hamish must smooth ruffled feathers as he investigates the case. When the hidden culprit strikes again, Hamish will find himself trying to save Priscilla from a miserable marriage—and catch a killer before he flies the coop.

        February 1, 1987
        Beaton's charming Constable Hamish Macbeth returns in the sequel to Death of a Gossip, a mirthful mystery set in the Scottish Highlands. Hamish's time is taken up with investigating a death at the Halburton-Smythe castle, and with subtly wooing the daughter of the house, Priscilla, who has brought her fiance Henry Withering to meet her parents and houseguests. Among them is Peter Bartlett, loathed by almost everyone present and found dead in the morning. The constable's inept superiors declare the death an accident, but Hamish produces evidence of murder, after which he eliminates all the suspects except the guilty one. In the course of these events, Priscilla's feelings for Henry weaken and, in contrast, flourish for Hamish, which gives hints of the next entry in the delightful series.

      • content: Constable Hamish Macbeth, a one-man police force in Scotland's Highlands, has a suspicious death on his hands. The victim is a cad staying at a local estate. The trouble is that everyone but Macbeth thinks it's an accident. Can he find out whodunit and woo the comely daughter of the estate? It takes Davina Porter a little time to settle into the Scottish accent of the main character. But when she does, her narration sparkles. Her voice is lyrical when it needs to be, but low and gruff when she becomes the male characters. Not only is her narrative pacing adept, but she succinctly captures the cadence of Scottish speech.
