Death of a Cad

When Priscilla Halburton-Smythe brings her London playwright fiancé home to Lochdubh, everyone in town is delighted… except for love-smitten Hamish Macbeth. Yet the affairs of his heart will have to wait.

Vile, boorish Captain Bartlett, one of the guests at Priscilla’s engagement party, has just been found murdered – shot while on a grouse hunt. Now with so many titled party guests as prime suspects, each with their own reason for snuffing out the despicable captain, Hamish must smooth ruffled feathers as he investigates the case… and catch a killer, before they fly the coop!

Reviews

M C Beaton's Hamish Macbeth books are a delight: clever, intricate and sardonic. The flavour is reminiscent of Compton MacKenzie's Whisky Galore and I'm very glad to own a complete set
Kerry Greenwood
The much-loved Hamish Macbeth series... a beguiling blend of wry humour and sharp observations of rural life
Good Book Guide
The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status
Anne Robinson, The Times
It's always a special treat to return to Lochdubh
New York Times
Superb entertainment, as rich and warming as a fine malt whisky, and every bit as addictive
Houston Chronicle
An enchanting series....M.C. Beaton has a foolproof plot for the village mystery
New York Times Book Review
Beaton, a Scot herself, excels at giving readers a taste of Highland life and creating a believable character in the lonely, brilliant, continually frustrated-in-love Macbeth
Booklist
Recommended for all mystery collections
