When Sergeant Hamish Macbeth is sent to investigate reports that the wealthy new laird of the remote Naglar House has disappeared, north-west Scotland is hit by the worst storm in living memory.
The road is washed away, phone lines are down, mobile reception is dead and his police radio is out of order. He is trapped with the laird's high-class house guests. Then he discovers the laird's body.
Forced to remain overnight at the house, he interviews each of the guests and pieces together an alarming picture of clandestine infidelity, vicious jealousy, deadly revenge, lust, greed and fear. It begins to look like all of the guests had good reason to want the laird dead, but which one of them actually did the deed?
"First rate...deft social comedy and wonderfully realised atmosphere." (Booklist)
"It's always a treat to return to Lochdubh." (New York Times)
"Befuddled, earnest and utterly endearing, Hamish makes his triumphs sweetly satisfying." (Publishers Weekly)

like a warm dram on a cold night!
Hamish is back, it feels like your favourite uncle is sitting by the peat fire telling grand stories until the wee small hours.
keep the coming Rod Green, you do the grand old lady proud.
What a terrible shame!
The Hamish Macbeth books are by far my favourites amongst MC Beaton’s work. I love their gentle humour and they never failed to put me in a good mood. The early books would actually make me laugh out loud.
I take it this book has been ghost written by someone else (as I suspect the last couple of books in Hamish Macbeth series may have been).
This book is missing that humour. Without it, this story could be any old whodunnit and it’s not a particularly clever or suspenseful one at that. The book is well read by David Monteath as ever, but even his cannot save it. Such a disappointment!
