Description

Gentle by name, gentle by nature. Everyone in the sleepy Scottish town of Lochdubh adores elderly Mrs. Gentle--everyone but Hamish Macbeth, that is. Hamish thinks the gentle lady is quite sly and vicious, and the citizens of Lochdubh think he is overly cranky. Perhaps it's time for him to get married, they say. But who has time for marriage when there's a murder to be solved? When Mrs. Gentle dies under mysterious circumstances, the town is shocked and outraged. Chief Detective Inspector Blair suspects members of her family, but Hamish Macbeth thinks there's more to the story, and begins investigating the truth behind this lady's gentle exterior.

      • content: Poor Hamish Macbeth has so many battles to fight at one time. First, his beloved police station is, again, in danger of closing. Second, he's the only one suspicious of village newcomer Mrs. Gentle. Third, once more he's thinking about getting engaged. Narrator Graeme Malcolm is splendid; every character is distinctive with his skilled delivery. He's excellent in his portrayal of Macbeth's chief inspector's self-important rantings, the Russian prostitute and the policewoman who comes seeking her, and, of course, the horrible Mrs. Gentle. Hamish remains his bumbling, unassuming self as he solves a murder with the help of whiskey-soaked Jimmy Anderson. This is an outstanding installment in Beaton's delightful series, and Malcolm makes a sparkling story even better. S.G.B. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine

        December 10, 2007
        Full of the author’s trademark zest and wit, bestseller Beaton’s 23rd Hamish Macbeth mystery (after 2007’s Death of a Maid
        ) finds the 50-year-old Scottish detective taking pity on a beautiful Turkish maid named Ayesha in danger of being deported, and asking her to marry him. When Ayesha goes missing and her employer, Mrs. Gentle, turns up murdered, Hamish discovers that his bride-to-be wasn’t exactly who she claimed to be. The villagers thought Mrs. Gentle was a sweet old lady, but why would such a nice woman be the target of blackmail? Threaded throughout the ever-twisting plot of the murder investigation are the ongoing saga of Hamish’s love life and the vendetta against him of his nemesis, Detective Chief Inspector Blair. Beaton fans will be delighted.
