Description
Access to Lochdubh is along a single, twisting, one-track road, but even its isolation can't keep Crystal French of Strathbane Television from dragging her crew and cameras into town. There to do a new show focusing on village life, Crystal quickly earns the outrage of the local folks when she rakes up old scandals and intimate secrets - tactics that promptly get her high ratings. Soon, even the local astrology column is hinting that Crystal had better watch her step. And no one, least of all Constable Hamish Macbeth, is surprised when she is killed.Glum with the news that his former fiancee, the incomparable Priscilla, has found a new love interest, Macbeth fails to notice that the writer of the astrology column, a pretty lady named Elspeth Grant, has taken a fancy to him. He spends his time with his dog Lugs, all the while bucking the police brass with his own theories about who murdered Crystal.Warned off the case by his Strathbane superiors, Macbeth is left to question a troupe of gypsies about quarters stolen from the Lochdubh Laundromat. But when violence again disrupts the placid Highland air, Macbeth finds his theories evaporating. With a new threat appearing on the horizon - one that would forever tear him away from his beloved Lochdubh - everything is unclear in Macbeth's world, except for his own haunting suspicion that the killer is someone he knows all to well ...

display_descriptionMurder on the Telly Lochdubh, a remote village reached only by a one-track lane, nestles serenely amid Scotland's hills ... until well-known TV reporter Crystal French races into town in her bright BMW. And Constable Hamish Macbeth, dourly wed to duty instead of the fiancee who dumped him, promptly gives her a summons for reckless driving. Outraged, Crystal makes Macbeth's life a misery with a TV report on policing in the Highlands. When she also rakes up old local scandals for her new hit show, Macbeth notes that someone besides himself might be dead keen to stop her. Then someone does-with stealth and violence. Now, finding out who did it will lead the laconic Macbeth down roads he never envisioned, into a dark story of passion and vengeance ... and perhaps a crisis of the heart all his own.
