I have gotten hooked on the Hamish Macbeth series, and while this wasn't my favorite of the few I've read, it was cleverly plotted and full of excellent character development. I found it interesting that the villain is a "traveling man" -- another word for hippie or drifter -- and the author distinguishes this from the Roma travelers common in Europe. As with all of Beaton's stories, our hero solves several cases throughout the course of the book, and I also learned more about Priscilla, Hamish's fiancee. I really need to go back and read these in order.
