Death of a Poison Pen

Author(s): M. C. Beaton

Miscellaneous

A sudden outbreak of maliciousness strikes the town of Lochdubh in the form of a rash of poison pen letters. Things turn deadly when the local postmistress is found hanged in her room ...with a vicious note beneath her dangling feet. Though his superiors call it suicide, PC Hamish Macbeth pronounces it murder. But Hamish is soon distracted by Jenny Ogilvie, a friend of his ex-fiancee, who arrives in Lochdubh to seduce him. And then he's ambushed by local reporter Elspeth Grant, who sets out to land the story - and Hamish - for herself. Caught in the middle of this volatile case, Hamish faces dangerous romances ...and a blackhearted culprit wielding a mighty - and lethal - pen. Praise for the Hamish Macbeth series: "The much-loved Hamish Macbeth series. beguiling blend of wry humour and sharp observations about rural life". (Good Book Guide). "It's always a special treat to return to Lochdubh". (New York Times Book Review). "The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status". (Anne Robinson, The Times).
