Publisher's Summary

With their engaging plots, mellow Scottish ambiance, and droll humor, the Hamish Macbeth mysteries always provide a bonnie time. The charming antics of their hopelessly unambitious and love-crossed hero have earned the series a dedicated following. Death of an Addict continues the Hamish Macbeth tradition of superb entertainment, with some fascinating twists.

When a recovering addict dies while recuperating near Lochdubh, our redheaded hero suspects foul play. To complete his investigation, Constable Macbeth must leave his idyllic home and travel to Amsterdam to match wits with big-time drug dealers.

Fans will enjoy seeing a new, tougher side of Macbeth as he dons smart suits and falls in love with his gorgeous superior officer.

Great Book

I so enjoy all Of M.C. Beaton’s books, just the best combination of all the components of a warm-hearted Scottish mystery, and Shaun Grindell is a great reader. We miss you, M.C. Beaton. Thank you for leaving us a wealth of well written novels.

One of the best in the series so far!

This book is partly set in Glasgow with Hamish undercover, so it spices up the typical plot line of the series. loved this one!

Love this series

While I have enjoyed almost all the books in the series the ending of this book kind of threw me for a loop. I had become so used to the happy endings of all the other books I’ve read by Beaton that this one with a sad ending kind of left me feeling a little low.

Love this series!

I love this series and M.C.Beaton. The plots and twists are entertaining, the characters engaging and every time I listen to one, I'm ready to pack my bags and head to Scotland or the Cotswolds!
