A Hamish Macbeth murder mystery.

SYNOPSIS  “When Hamish Macbeth wins the cleaning services of local busybody Mrs Gillespie in a church raffle, he knows he’s on course for choppy waters. Though armed with a bucket and mop, snooping is her speciality. Yet Hamish finds more to upset him than a meddlesome maid when ex-girlfriend Elspeth Grant arrives in Lochdubh with her latest love. Hamish feels an ill wind coming; sure enough, before too long, his new maid is found dead under suspicious circumstances. And, as he investigates, his old flame’s presence fires the red-haired bobby to foolish antics instead of a firm focus on murder most foul.”
