Series: Hamish Macbeth #10
As usual, Hamish Macbeth gets pulled into a murder mystery, except he's the only who thinks a death occurred, and the only other death (which of course he finds suspicious) gets written off as an accident by everyone except Hamish. This book also showcases some reprehensible attitudes and beliefs that Hamish holds through his relationship with Priscilla. It's the kind of thing that I find particular disappointing in a woman author writing in the 1990s. I think I'm done with the series. He treated Priscilla abysmally, and the mystery is solved more through accident than cleverness.
