Description du produit

From Publishers Weekly

One of the warmest and quirkiest mystery series around boasts a new publisher and a welcome burst of fresh energy. Making his 10th appearance (following Death of a Travelling Man ) is lanky, tousle-haired Scottish Highland copper Hamish Macbeth, in the company here of his lazy dog Towser, his higher-born fiancee Priscilla and the quixotic inhabitants of the village of Lochdubh. Hamish, known for his slovenly lifestyle and crafty detecting, meets handsome newcomer, Peter Hynd, whose suave looks send the village womenfolk running to the hairdresser and aerobics classes. Soon they are at each other's throats and queueing up for a place in his bed. The Lothario goes missing and soon the body of one of his conquests is found on the beach, leaving Hamish with two mysteries to solve while his domestic life deteriorates. Beaton's tremendously likable policeman stars here in a tightly wrought tale, with a gem of an ending in which Hamish manages to be both dead right and dead wrong. Further good news is that the series has been optioned by Zenith Productions, the team responsible for the absorbing TV series starring Colin Dexter's Inspector Morse.

Hamish MacBeth is a stubborn, silent, gloomy Scotsman who's also kindhearted, intelligent, and intuitive. A Lochdubh native, he knows his village, the surrounding countryside, and the local folk like the back of his hand. His life is satisfyingly settled--he's engaged to the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, and there have been no serious crimes in Lochdubh for months. Then incredibly handsome Peter Hynd comes to town, charms all the women, antagonizes all the men, and generally turns the town on its ear. Hamish senses trouble brewing, but when a body is discovered, it's not Hynd after all--at least, the first body isn't. Other coppers might be baffled by the case, but not laconic, methodical, determined Hamish, who persists until he unravels the puzzling mystery. Beaton's low-key police procedural doesn't offer white-knuckle suspense, blood and gore, fast-paced action, or stunning climaxes. What it does offer is an intimate look at life in a small Scottish village, striking insights into human nature, carefully detailed, highly accurate descriptions of police work, splendid dry humor, and a story that's as satisfying as a cozy cup of tea. Emily Melton

Dans cet épisode, Hamish est fiancé à la charmante Priscilla qui veut régenter de A à Z sa vie. Il étouffe. Voilà que surgit un charmant jeune homme qui reveille la féminité et fait perdre la tête à toutes les femmes du coin. Les hommes aussi vont perdre la tête mais de rage. Une mort, une enquête officiellement close et le superintendant Daviot, chef de la police qui voudrait voir Hamish s'occuper de sa fiancée plutôt que de cette mort.

Comme d'habitude une vraie merveille de se plonger dans les Highlands.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Another great Hamish mystery 11 mai 2016
Par JJ - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Now I see the thing that is the same about both Beaton major characters Hamish Macbeth and Agatha Raisin. It is their inability to change. Having dreamed of obtaining the lovely Pricilla for years when he is actually faced with the possibility of obtaining her he does all the wrong things and is glad when it has the inevitable result. So, this series has become very interesting reading. The mysteries have become more and more interesting so that you just can't put the book down. This was not the case with the first few books in this series. I began with the first one having purchased 5 then the second 5. I thought at first it had been a mistake but now I see that Ms Beacon is again at her best as an author. I've ordered the rest of the series and am looking forward to many hours of great reading.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 HANDSOME IS AS HANDSOME DOES... 24 août 2011
Par lawyeraau - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
When Constable Hamish Macbeth decided to check the far reaches of his beat, Hamish ostensibly does so because someone new has moved into the dreary village of Drim. The real reason for Hamish paying Drim a visit, however, may have something to do with his wanting to escape the ministrations of the coolly collected but beautiful Pricilla Halburton-Smythe, who is now his fiancée and seems to want to change his way of life.

While Hamish is in Drim, he notices that the village females are all agog over this outsider, Peter Hynd, who just happens to be the best looking man they have ever seen. Peter's move to Drim is simply the most exciting thing ever to happen in that village. Charming, as well as extremely handsome, this lothario has the village men seeing red, while Hamish sees that this is a potential recipe for disaster.

When a dead body turns up and our charming man goes missing, Hamish has some sneaking suspicions. Between trying to figure out what is going on in Drim and what is going on at home with his fiancée, Hamish certainly has his hands full. Unfortunately for Hamish, he is a lot better at figuring out what happened in Drim than what is happening in his own personal life.

This is the tenth book in a series of cozy mysteries featuring lovable Highlander, Hamish Macbeth. In this book, village life once again takes center stage, and the village characters give the book that cozy feel. The recurring characters are further developed, enmeshing the reader into their lives. The book is also laced with sly humor throughout that is engaging, keeping the mood of the book light and highly enjoyable.

As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery. While the mysteries are intriguing, they are the framework around which the characters evolve. With the oddly endearing Hamish Macbeth, the author has created a winner.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Dark Humor 29 avril 2013

Love all the Hamish Macbeth books. My sister got me started on them and now I'm surpassing her in reading them. I am in the process of purchasing ALL of them and reading them in order to the very last one. If you are a fan of the Tony Hillerman books and like that sort of murder mystery with a hint of humor, then you will adore these cute, well-written, quick-read-but-good little books about Constable Hamish Macbeth of the HIghlands of Scotland. This book took Hamish on a different and darker twist, but still kept that smiling or laughing-to-yourself humor that hits you as you turn the pages. This story gave me images of a more ominous Highland landscape which was perfect for a good mystery. Not all of Scotland is picturesque, quaint little villages. You get to travel over the Highlands with Hamish and his dog Towser in these books, until you are almost living them. Everyone should read these series of books and just relax and enjoy.

Always a great read up in the Highlands with all the characters that have become my "friends". Love Hamish Macbeth, he is one charming copper! Have read every book MC Beaton has written about him and the Highlands. Am always waiting for her next book on Hamish and friends!

I don't know why. Maybe it's just because he lives in the Highlands, but I LOVE Hamish. He doesn't really have many endearing qualities...but just the same, I adore him and keep coming back for more even if that means reading the same basic plot over and over. You don't read this series for the plot. You read it for the characters and setting.
