Présentation de l'éditeur

It's springtime in the Highlands but storms are brewing for Hamish Macbeth. His life is going to pot. He has - horrors! - been promoted, his new boss is a dunce, and a sinister self-proclaimed gypsy and his girlfriend have parked their rusty eyesore of a van in the middle of the village.

Hamish smells trouble and as usual he's right. The doctor's drugs have gone missing. Money vanishes. And neighbours suddenly become unneighbourly. Nobody wants to talk either, so canny Hamish faces the delicate task of worming the facts out of the villagers.

In the process he uncovers a story so bizarre that neither he nor the locals may ever be able to forget it...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Encore un épisode de Hamish 1 février 2011
Par jasmin d'été VOIX VINE
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Bien sûr pour ceux qui connaissent la série , ce n'est pas nouveau. Un meutre est commis dans les proximités du village du policier Hamism héros de la série.
Mais ce qui est bizarre cette fois ci, est que les habitants et amis de Hamish changent de comportement. L'arrivée d'un voyageur charismatique a beaucoup affecté son village. Mais pourquoi? Et cela le rend malheureux de penser que l'un des ses proches pourrait être l'assassin du nouveau venu au village...

5.0 étoiles sur 5 HAMISH MACBETH STRIKES AGAIN!!! 7 mars 2001
Par Mac Blair - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche|Achat vérifié
I have read nearly all the series up to and including this one. I think this may be the best one of all. Hamish now has a side-kick by th name of Willie Lamont. Hamish would love to get rid of him so he could go back to his old way of doing things. The travelling man is Sean Gourlay, a traveller, something like a gypsy. He parks his bus on the Pastors property and Hamish cannot make hom leave. Then things begin to disappear, and people begin to change. Hamish is sure Sean is behind it. Then Sean is murdered. Hamish is really glad but he has to find the killer. Seems Sean was getting close to four ladies in town. Any of them would have done it. Also the restaurant owner wanted to kill him. But who did? Hamish also has to fight Inspector Blair, who wants to discredit Hamish before he gets another promotion. Will Hamish find the right killer? Will he ever propose to Priscilla? Will what the four ladies did be found out? Need to read to find the answers. I think you will enjoy the book. Great Scottish words and country.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A fun Hamish Mac Beth mystery 30 août 2002
Par Moe811 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Hamish is trying to deal with his promotion and new constable Willie. Willie is a clean freak and is driving the laconic Hamish crazy. The police station is also abnormally busy. Two travellers arrive in the village in a beat up bus. Everyone but Hamish seems to be charmed by the couple. The local reverend even lets him park his bus on the grass next to the manse. Then odd crimes occur. Money is stolen from the Mother's Union fund, and morphine is missing from Dr. Brodie's office. Priscilla's scarf is taken, then found, and finally, the Currie sisters have put their house up for sale. Mrs. Brodie, Mrs. Wellington, and Jessie Currie are miserable. Hamish thinks that it has something to do with the Travelling Man. Soon after, Sean turns up dead, beaten to death with a sledge hammer. Hamish is terribly afraid that one of the villagers committed the crime.
This was a funny mystery. Hamish is lazy on the outside and busy in his mind as usual. Willie's romance with the beautiful Lucia is hysterical. I love the way his scrubs his way into her heart. Hamish's devious solving of the crime without effort or getting promoted is very entertaining.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 another nice outing with Macbeth 5 octobre 2005
Par Miss Ivonne - Publié sur Amazon.com
What's the best indicator of a fine read? When you can't wait to get to the library to select the next one in the series. That's definitely the case with "Death of a Travelling Man."

In this novel, two transients blow into Lockdubh in a remodeled bus, and the village is turned topsy-turvy by one of them, the malevolent Sean. It's a common plot device for M.C. Beaton -- in this series as well as her Agatha Raisin series; however, Beaton is able to make it seem fresh in "Death of a Travelling Man." You'll love the clever ending, too.

My one quibble with the book is with Hamish's new assistant, Police Constable Willie Lamont. The young sidekick is more of a cartoon than a true-to-life character. Beaton usually manages to make her quirky village residents remind you of people you've really met. (I hate to admit it, but the high-strung and untidy Angela Brodie reminds me of myself!) Here Lamont is a one-dimensional version of Felix Ungar, complete with ruffled apron. Ugh!

Although this is the eighth Hamish Macbeth mystery, the series hasn't grown tired. Macbeth can be petulant, mooching and unlikable, but in "Death of a Travelling Man," the lanky Highland copper is likable, unselfish and industrious. Macbeth also shows more self-knowledge than usual. Don't miss this one.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Death of a Travelling Man 3 avril 2003
Par Ricky N. - Publié sur Amazon.com
"Death of a Travelling Man" is the ninth Hamish Macbeth mystery by M. C. Beaton, a series set in the Scottish highlands in the town of Lochdubh. Hamish has been promoted to sergeant, and has a helper in P.C. Willie Lamont. With so little crime in Lochdubh Willie is usually either cleaning the station or spending time at the Italian restaurant with the lovely Lucia. Sean Gourlay and his girlfriend Cheryl Higgins roll into Lochdubh in an old bus converted into a travelling home. Hamish knows they are trouble and orders them to leave. The townspeople think he is being too harsh, and the pair soon park their bus in back of minister Wellington's home. Soon after their arrival, many of the women of the town start acting strangely. Four vials of morphine vanish from Dr. Brodie's office and one hundred pounds disappear from the Mother's Union. Then Sean is found murdered in the bus. Who killed him? Was it one of the women of the town whom Sean had been blackmailing? Was it Willie Lamont, who learns that Lucia had kissed Sean Gourlay? Could it have been Sean's girlfriend, Cheryl? Hamish once again sorts through everything and solves the murder. An interesting turn takes place in Hamish's relationship with Priscilla Halburton-Smythe. "Death of a Travelling Man" is an excellent novel and a very entertaining read.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A fun, readable story and a likeable character. 1 janvier 2001
Par MLPlayfair - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the 8th Hamish Macbeth novel (c 1993), but the first time I've encountered him. He's drawn with humor and compassion by the author of the Agatha Raisin books. But Agatha is sometimes hard to like, whereas Hamish is very likeable and kind. The mystery follows an unusual path and has a satisfactory conclusion. The little Scottish town is going to be fun to visit, but in this book it's only a skeleton sketch of a place. I'm sure, as with the Agatha books, that it develops more of a sense of place as its description unfolds in the other books. The same goes for the town's characters. Here they are mostly just cutouts. But the "temporary" villains are well done. Still, it's a fun story and a charming character.
