SYNOPSIS:  “Hamish Macbeth is savouring the delights of a real Highland summer, but as the rain rolls in from the loch his comfort is short-lived. First, his beloved Priscilla Halburton-Smythe returns to Lochdubh with a new fiance on her arm. Next vast clouds of midges descend on the town. And then a paragon of housewifely perfection known as Trixie Thomas moves into Lochdubh with her wimpish husband in tow. The newcomer quickly convinces the local ladies to embrace low-cholesterol meals, ban alcohol and begin bird-watching. Soon the town’s menfolk are up in arms and Macbeth has a new case to solve – the mysterious poisoning of the perfect wife.”
