Enticed by fantasies of the simple life, dreamers are occasionally drawn north by the rugged Scottish landscape. They usually don't last, defeated by the climate or inhospitable locals. But it looks as if Effie Garrand has come to stay. When local constable Hamish Macbeth calls on her after a particularly hideous winter, he's amazed to find the small woman still in residence. Unfortunately, Effie is also quite delusional, having convinced herself -- and everyone else -- that local artist Jock Fleming is in love with her, and that they are engaged. After a huge fight with Jock, Effie is found in the mountains, poisoned by hemlock. Now, it's up to Macbeth, the self-styled " unambitious man, " to find the dreamer's killer before any more nightmares unfold. M. C. Beaton's intricate plotting and lively characters are masterfully presented in this unabridged audio version.
X marks the spot of a vicious killer, his calling card the letter carved on his victim's backs. While the killings are morbid, they also offer detective Tom Thorne plenty of clues. This is turf warfare between North London gangs; organized crime boss Billy Ryan is moving into someone else's patch. Thorne also agrees to help out ex-DCI Carol Chamberlain on an old murder case involving the immolation of a schoolgirl. But soon the two separate investigations begin to fuse into one new, very nasty riddle involving a murderous family that values nothing but its own power. When an X is carved on his front door, Thorne knows these crimes of past and present will soon engulf him, too.
Returning from a foreign holiday, Constable Hamish Macbeth senses a dark cloud of evil hanging over his Scottish village. A newcomer, Catriona Beldame, has cast a spell over the town, and word of her magical powers spreads as fast as the Highland fog. When she is murdered, Hamish is named the prime suspect. The loyal constable must clear his name, and bring peace and quiet back to his beloved village.
Minor writer John Heppel has a problem - he's by all accounts a consummate bore. When he's found dead in his cottage, there are plenty of suspects. But surely boredom shouldn't be cause for murder, or so thinks local bobby and sleuth Hamish Macbeth, whose investigation of Heppel's soap opera script uncovers much more than melodrama. Popular reader and actor Graeme Malcolm makes this intricate whodunit set in Beaton's beloved Scottish village a memorable audio experience. This is the newest title in the popular Hamish Macbeth series.
