Description

With this outrageously entertaining whodunit, internationally-acclaimed M. C. Beaton leads you on a fun-filled Highland Fling through scenic Scottish villages and rocky hillsides. Independant-spirited Constable Hamish Macbeth-Lochdubh's one-man police force-has his hands full after a glitzy TV company arrives in search of higher ratings. Ever since a British television crew began filming a mystery series nearby Castle Drim, Hamish has watched tension building. Middle-aged townsfolk and flashy filmmakers are clashing, the younger locals are vying for bit parts, and rumors are flying about vicious quarrels among the crew. But trouble really escalates after one of the scriptwriters is found dead, and Hamish discovers a full cast of suspects lurking behind the scenes. Mystery fans around the world are captivated with M. C. Beaton's cunning humor, quirky characters, and vibrant local color. With her lyrical performance and authentic Scottish accents, narrator Davina Porter will whisk you to the Highlands to enjoy a simpler way of life.
