When a local woman tells Sergeant Hamish Macbeth that she doesn't remember what happened the previous evening, he doesn't begin to worry. She had been out drinking, after all, and he'd prefer not to be bothered with such an arrogant and annoying woman. But when her body is discovered, Hamish is forced to investigate a crime that the only known witness--now dead--had forgotten

What has happened to Lochdubh? Hamish's neighbors have stopped gossiping about him and started to try to destroy him! Two people, for selfish motives, try to ruin his relationships with Elspeth and Priscilla. One neighbor tries to get him thrown off the force and makes him the prime murder suspect. Another neighbor has reported Sonsie to the authorities who are on their way to take her from her loving home and force her into the wilderness (after they make he a lab animal for a while). Hamish's own partner has turned against him.
I disagree with other reviewers, this is not the same old thing, this is a whole new village that is rapidly sinking to the same level as Brakie of Cnothan.

Tis possible that I'm either out-growing the series or M.C. Beaton needs to kick things up a notch. I enjoyed the book but some parts of the plot seemed contrived/lazy. Nothing for us readers to exercise our brain cells on.

Yes, after more than 20 books, it gets repetitive. But what can I say, I'm addicted to the series. As comfortable as a nice thick robe, fuzzy slippers and hot chocolate.
Also, I credit this series with giving me a desire to do a tour of Scotland's Highlands in the next few years.

Good as always lots of twists and turns. A nice easy read.

This was a very interesting entry. Besides the main plot of “who killed Morag” there were several smaller cases, including the return of two of Hamish’s creepiest suspects from a prior book. I can’t help but wonder if Beaton meant to write so many subplots when she began this book, or if the main plot came up short of her quota and she had to go back and write in some filler. Either way, it works.
