Description

In the isolated villages in the north of Scotland, the villagers rely on the services of the chimney sweep, Pete Ray, and his old-fashioned brushes. Pete is always able to find work in the Scottish highlands, until the day that Police Constable Hamish Macbeth notices blood dripping onto the floor of a villager's fireplace, and a dead body stuffed inside the chimney. The entire town of Lochdubh is certain Pete is the culprit, but Hamish doesn't believe that the affable chimney sweep is capable of committing murder. Then Pete's body is found on the Scottish moors, and the mystery deepens. It's up to Hamish to discover who's responsible for the dirty deed—and this time, the murderer may be closer than he realizes.

        December 6, 2010
        Bestseller Beaton offers breezy fun rather than gripping suspense in her 26th mystery featuring her lovable smalltown Scottish detective, Police Sgt. Hamish Macbeth (after 2010's Death of a Valentine). Capt. Henry Davenport and his wife, Milly, have recently moved into a decrepit Georgian mansion on the outskirts of the sleepy village of Drim. A cranky and elusive man, Davenport goes for a walk one day and turns up dead in the chimney of his home that afternoon. While the town chimney sweep appears the likely culprit, no one quite believes that sweet Pete Ray would be capable of such a crime. But when Pete dies in a suspicious motorcycle accident on the moors, Macbeth realizes a killer is after something—or someone—that the fiend will stop at nothing to find. Cozy fans who value amusing characters over intricate plotting will be well satisfied.
