My husband and I like to listen to mysteries in audio format when we take driving trips. This one was fun. It is the first of a series set in Scotland, with the main character being a policeman in a little Scottish town, Haimish McBeth. McBeth is a young red-haired bobby, apparently unambitious and soft-spoken, but he fools everyone when he provides a snappy comeback, dispenses good advice, and catches the murderer of the obnoxious Lady Jane at a local fishing school. He proves the old adage, "Still waters run deep," and I think I'll read a few more in the series. The reader on this tape did a nice jobs with all the English, American, and Scottish accents. Salty language added an unexpected touch of humor.
