Death Of A Gossip (Hamish Macbeth, #1) by M.C. Beaton

4:11 pm 0 Comments A+ a-


Scottish highland village cop Hamish Macbeth must find which target was provoked enough to strangle and drown nasty fat widowed tabloid reporter Jane Winters, who revealed many others' guilty secrets. Much is from the viewpoint of a naive secretary seduced by a blue-blood playboy. Icy blond beauty, aristocratic Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, lends a hand.




Hey! Here's my review

This is the first book I've read by the author and it is first in this series.
It is an old fashioned mystery set in the scottish highlands. A small group of people on a fishing holiday all take a dislike to one of the members. She turns up dead and Hamish McBeth, the local policeman, helps work out "who done it". A simple, predictable plot with enough red herrings (and salmon and trout) that I didn't work out who the killer was until the big reveal.

I listened to the audiobook that I won through a promotion from Bolinda Audio on their Facebook page. Thanks Bolinda!
