I've only recently discovered MC Beaton and this is only my second Hammish Macbeth-- for those who like their mysteries cozy and set in the Highlands. A nice little book. Not too brain boggling. Characters and locals are fun and I could hear the dialogue well in my head.

From the Publisher
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.
