Samenvatting

Hamish Macbeth is savouring the delights of a Highland summer, but as fast as the rain rolls in from the loch his happy life goes to hell in a handbasket. The trouble begins when his beloved Priscilla Halburton-Smythe returns to Lochdubh with a new fiance on her arm. His miseries multiply when clouds of midges descend on the town. And then a paragon of housewife perfection named Trixie Thomas moves into Lochdubh with her cowed husband in tow. The newcomer quickly convinces the local ladies to embrace low-cholesterol meals, ban alcohol and begin bird-watching. Soon the town's menfolk are up in arms and Macbeth must solve Lochdubh's newest crime - the mysterious poisoning of the perfect wife.

Recensie(s)

This fictional world-part cozy, part unsparing-can be highly addictive. * School Library Journal * As usual, Beaton delivers a delightfully old-fashioned, absorbing village mystery. * Booklist * It's always a special treat to return to Lochdubh * New York Times * Superb entertainment, as rich and warming as a fine malt whisky, and every bit as addictive * Houston Chronicle * Beaton, a Scot herself, excels at giving readers a taste of Highland life and creating a believable character in the lonely, brilliant, continually frustrated-in-love Macbeth. * Booklist * The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status. -- Anne Robinson * The Times * The much-loved Hamish Macbeth series... a beguiling blend of wry humour and sharp observations of rural life. * Good Book Guide * M C Beaton's Hamish Macbeth books are a delight: clever, intricate and sardonic. The flavour is reminiscent of Compton MacKenzie's Whisky Galore and I'm very glad to own a complete set -- Kerry Greenwood
