It’s too bad Hamish MacBeth loves his village of Luchdubh in Scotland so much. He is good at finding criminals but doesn’t want the promotion so everyone thinks he’s lazy. In this book he uses his unorthodox ways of detecting and finds the murderer. He also proposes to one of his former girlfriends. Anyone who reads this series knows how that will turn out. You feel sorry for him but yet he really wouldn’t be happy any where else.
