"When Priscilla Halburton-Smythe brings her London playwright fiancé home to Lochdubh, the whole town is delighted, save perhaps for love-smitten bobby Hamish Macbeth. But the morning after a tastefully posh engagement party, one of the guests, Captain Bartlett - who so enraged everyone with his boorish behavior and caddish comments - has the bad manners to be murdered on a grouse hunt. Unfortunately, the prime suspects are the titled party guests, each with a decidedly unfriendly feeling toward the newly deceased. And a second shocking murder really is the last straw. Though alibis abound, it takes Hamish Macbeth, the quiet law enforcement genius, to smooth ruffled feathers and track a clever murderer, even as he subtly woos lovely Priscilla from her jealous city sophisticate."; 6¾" - 7¾" Tall
