MacBeth is back on the best!

Another spell binding Adventure with Hamish. I took delivery yesterday and could not stop listening until I finished the book. Is Banished life coming together at last? You be the judge! MC, another winner. David Monteath is to be congratulated on his atmospheric description of the book. Brilliant.

Very good

Well drawn characters, brilliantly read by David Monteith. A strong storey line with old, loved, characters developed and new ones introduced. The reader is in the midst of the Highland weather with Hamish Macbeth both baddies and the climate.

Hamish goes from strength to strength

Any additional comments?

Much as I enjoy Angela Raisin, Hamish Macbeth remains my favourite Beaton character. He once again outthinks the brains of Strathbane Police as he deals with deaths occurring after smuggling is suspected off the Sutherland coast, plus the continuing departmental struggles between his superiors, with the help of a new sidekick. Priscilla and Elspeth appear briefly but Hamish remains a bachelor, notwithstanding the efforts of the ladies of Lochdubh!

Synopsis is incorrect!

Another excellent Hamish Macbeth story...but the synopsis is incorrect. Charlie DOESN'T get taken to hospital in helicopter (he's not really injured), and it's Superintendent Daviot who arrives at the scene (not Blair). Don't know who wrote the summary, but they mustn't have read the book first!

Great listening

Really great story and David Monteath reads Hamish Macbeth stories brilliantly. The description of the setting for the story really comes to life you can really see it.

We can say good

I liked it but compared to the Agatha Raisin series I did not feel the push to listen often.

What fun!

This is my first Hamish Macbeth book, it had a nicely woven plot complemented by an interesting range of characters. Narration was very good. It’s not heavy fiction but a pleasant interlude.

The author is unsure of how or when to end the story

Another lightweight story that goes on and on. Lovely to listen to mindlessly although the writer is carrying things on a bit far these days. Still, on I read!
