Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

The most hated man in the most dour town in Scotland is sleeping with the fishes, or - more accurately - has been dumped into a tank filled with crustaceans. All that remains of the murdered victim are his bones. But once the lobsters have been shipped off to Britain's best restaurants, the whole affair quickly lands on the plate of Constable Hamish Macbeth.

Exiled to the dreary outpost of Cnothan, Macbeth sorely misses his beloved Lochdubh, but before he can head back home he has to contend with a detective chief inspector who wants the murder hushed up, a dark-haired lassie who is out to seduce him, and a killer who has made mincemeat of his last victim, and will no doubt strike again...

Book Description

MysteryLarge Print EditionNobody in the Scottish town of Cnothan had liked the abrasive Englishman, and now that he has been murdered in a most original fashion nobody much minds. Constable Hamish Macbeths hard luck is that he happens to be on temporary duty in this cloistered Highlands village when the killer strikes. And he has his work cut out for him, dragging from Mainwarings close-mouthed neighbors enough facts to start solving this peculiar case. But Hamish is crafty, and slowly extracts from the locals a scandalous tale so unbelievable that it can only be true.

Le Constable Hamish Macbeth est envoyé par son supérieur dans un village hostile,Cnotham, pour remplacer temporairement le constable local parti en vacances.
Hamish Macbeth pense que ce sera ennuyeux et terne surtout ques personnes de ce village écossais sont hostiles et peu loquaces.Mais c'est sans compter sur la personnalité de William Mainwaring, l'homme le plus haï du coin. Il disparaît mystérieusement et on ne retrouve que ses clefs et dentier au fond du bac des crustacés.Qui a pu tuer cet homme ? tout le monde car il y avait une grande perversité dans ses actes.

3ème enquête d'Hamish Macbeth dans ce petit livre (moins de 200 pages). La lecture est distrayante (joli décor, personnages un brin excentriques, un peu d'humour) mais n'offre rien de plus. L'ensemble reste superficiel en termes d'écriture et d'intrigue. A lire pour passer un bon moment sans se prendre la tête.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 When the wonderful author has described a despicable character 28 décembre 2016
Par Alice - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Delightful mystery/comedy of individualistic Scottish copper fighting crime in a small village... the criminals are never locals/primary characters. When the wonderful author has described a despicable character, you can be pretty sure they will be the first 'victim'. Some of the later audio versions are wonderfully done. There are many stories in the series and the author is prolific/many pen names.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Fun Highland Mystery! 27 novembre 2013
Par Cozy Reader - Publié sur

Death of a Outsider sees Hamish Macbeth leaving his beloved Lochdubh to spend three months covering for a police officer in the Highland town of Cnothan. With his beloved dog, Hamish gets to know the locals and discovers he's not the only "outsider" in Cnothan. There are quite a few, a lovely lass from Canadian and a married couple that the locals cannot stand. It seems that Mr Mainwaring has a way of causing the locals to dislike him, as he picks and prods his way into all their lives. When a skeleton turns up dead and it is discovered to belong to Mr Mainwaring, Macbeth and Inspector Blair set out to investigate the case and find out who disliked Mainwaring enough to want him dead.

I've liked the first two books in this series and I'm continuing on by listening to book 3, Death of a Outsider, on audio. I love seeing what Hamish gets up to and it's nice to see him away from Lochdubh for this adventure. He's trying to keep his mind off Priscilla, his crush and the girl that he can't quite see a future with, even though he wants to. He finds things interesting in Cnothan - especially with a very unattached Canadian artist. And of course there is a murder to solve!!

Speaking of the murder. I read a lot of murder mysteries and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised of who Mainwaring was killed and the discovering of his skeleton. Yes not a corpse but a skeleton. I haven't seen this in a previous mystery and I love how creative M.C. Beaton was with this.

I really enjoyed Death of a Outsider and will listen to more of these books on audio. It seems that there was a new narrator with this one - Shaun Grindell. He provides the voice for the rest of the audios in this series, and while it took me a little while to get used to his narration I am looking forward to seeing how he narrates future books.

I have never read a M C Beaton book that I did not enjoy! The audio's are even better because I can clean or do crafts while listening to a great book! Great Author, Love this Series, I would definitely suggest to others! : )
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Disappointing 14 mai 2016
Par James C. Work - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
As a long time fan of Hamish MacBeth mysteries, I found Death of an Outsider very disappointing. The plot is flawed, the pivotal events highly improbable and far too "contrived." MacBeth himself is fairly three-dimensional, but to fill in a thin plot line Beaton drags in the old problems of Hamish's love life. The comic love scene in which he goes to bed with the woman who turns out to have false hair, teeth and breasts is a poor retelling of the old joke about the bridegroom whose bride turns out to be mostly spare parts, and it doesn't seem to serve much purpose. As for the "device" of the skeleton in the lobster tank, the less said about it the better.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Murder set in the Highlands and a lovable village cop makes for a cozy read. 1 août 2015

As with all of M. C. Beaton books the MacBeth series is not to be missed if you like mysteries set in small British villages. Actually these are set in the Scottish highlands but you get the picture. Hamish MacBeth is a small village cop who is very astute at assessing the characters and finding the culprits responsible for upsetting the serenity of the usually calm but never boring life in the beautiful Highlands. I was sad as I read the last book in the series and hope there will be more to come. I am a fan of Christie, Sayers, Rendell and Nero Wolf and this series fits in well although a little lighter to read. There were even some laugh out loud situations which I enjoyed immensely.
