Death of a gossip mc beaton
Death of a Gossip (Hamish Macbeth, #1) by M.C. BeatonFantastic! What a story, so intelligently told! The difference between Death Of A Gossip and the first Agatha Raisin book is that the former doesnt concentrate on the main characters details. That only helped to improve on what was a nice murder case. The gathering of suspects in a library was something of a throwback to Christie books. The final showdown with the suspects was very well presented. Hamish is such a decent chap. His traits are realistically displayed, and you believe him, his upbringing, his motives. He is the most alive detective Ive come across since Sleeping Murders Jane Marple. I enjoyed reading about things that moved me. Yet despite the fact that I could have been swept away emotionally, I wasnt. The book gave me control of my thoughts. I was aloof and impartial, while still cared very much for Alice, Charlie et al. I was very surprised by the quality of this book. And it seems, and I hope, that I have a lot of good things to discover of the Hamish Macbeth series.

Hamish Macbeth, village constable of Lochdubh, smells trouble when he is mooching around the latest members of a fishing school. Thanks to her glowing personality, unfortunately, everyone has a motive. To say that I was less than positive is probably understating the tone of my review. So what on earth possessed me to return to the series? I always like to give a writer a second chance.
The very first Hamish Mcbeth crime mystery, delightfully recovered and re-issued for all the fans of Agatha Raisin. Born in Scotland, M. Beaton worked for many years as a journalist on Fleet Street. She divides her time between Paris and a Cotswolds village very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely. Visit www.
