Pressestimmen

The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status. The Times Beaton, a Scot herself, excels at giving readers a taste of Highland life and creating a believable character in the lonely, brilliant, continually frustrated-in-love Macbeth. Booklist Looking for escape? Tired of waiting for Brigadoon to materialise? Time for a trip to Lochdubh... where M C Beaton sets her beguiling whodunits featuring Constable Hamish Macbeth New York Times Book Review -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Synopsis

Nobody in the Scottish town of Cnothan had liked the abrasive Englishman, and now that he had been murdered - nobody much minds. Hamish Macbeth's hard luck is that he happened to be on temporary duty in this cloistered village when the killer struck. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

s.o.Nichts für Hardcorefans. Freundliche Stimmung, nettes Ambiente. Zur Ablenkung gut geeignet, für Freunde ruhiger englischer Krimis. Gut vor dem Einschlafen.

Beaton writes a five-star series 22. Januar 2000
Von wendrea - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
M.C. Beaton is one of my top five favorite authors of all time. Her writing style is superb and has since made me much more critical of other authors. Treat yourself to an adventure in the Highlands; remember your coffee and scones-for you'll want to stay awhile! Only one complaint: It is important to the romance angle to read these books in order, and yet the listing in front is scrambled. This is the third book in the series, starting with Death of a Gossip and Death of a Cad.

Death of an Outsider is wonderful romp. 16. August 2003
Von S. Schwartz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
M.C. Beaton's stories are absolutely excellent and the best examples of cozies you'll find anywhere. I am almost disappointed with myself because I read her Agatha Raisin series before the Hamish Macbeth series. As much as I enjoy Agatha, Hamish is pure delight! In this book he has been transferred to Cnothan to relieve the village policeman as he takes an extended vacation. Right away Hamish is thrown into the village's political situation. He finds the people of this village are unfriendly and there seems to be an oppresive atmosphere in the village. Sure enough, in true Hamish fashion, a corpse shows up. Hamish must determine first who has been killed and then who actually did it. Hamish and the reader are subjected to more of the odious Blair as he is again sent to the village to unravel the homicide. Of course Hamish solves the murder (and not Blair) but not before he actually finds some romance in this ominous little village of Cnothan. We also discover why Hamish will never eat lobster again. Hamish is a wonderful character and I find as I read each story, he becomes more and more real to me.

Lochdubh Is Spared a Murder Spree 27. Dezember 2006
Von Donald Mitchell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
With a series that requires a murder for each story, a small town like Lochdubh can find itself quickly depopulated by that plot requirement. Fortunately for the fictional residents, M.C. Beaton sends Hamish Macbeth off for a fill-in assignment in the Highland town of Cnothan so that town can be depopulated instead.

Hamish isn't happy to learn that he's off to Cnothan. The residents there are more taciturn and unfriendly than most Highlanders. What's more, he'll be away from Priscilla Hallburton-Smythe the whole time.

The assignment is soon off to a rocky start when it turns out to be difficult to find the police station in Cnothan. What's more, Hamish is replacing a family that doesn't really want him in their home.

But Hamish rouses himself when he discovers that one of his new neighbors is a friendly, unattached Canadian woman. But his job doesn't look promising since he doesn't even know where he's supposed to be patrolling. The locals decide that Hamish may have a yen for other men, which sets up some good humor. But some of the humor is at Hamish's expense as he's called out to investigate a mysterious body.

Later, the town drunk has a close encounter with a corpse that causes great problems for all of the police.

You'll enjoy seeing Hamish operate in new surroundings, with many new challenges to overcome.

The motive for the murder is unusually obscure. If you can spot it . . . and the murderer, you're a lot sharper than I am. I thought that the premise for the murder was so obscure as to be a negative and graded the book down accordingly. I don't think our author played fair with us in this story.

But you'll find lots of chuckles . . . and food for thought the next time you dine on lobster.

Enjoy!

What is an Outsider? 29. August 2014
Von karsiyaka - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
After being temporarily transferred to another town two hours away from his home in Lochdubh, Police Constable Hamish Macbeth has problems of his own: not being able to get Priscilla Halburton-Smythe out of his mind, hostile locals who don’t like outsiders (in this area, obviously another Scotsman from Highlands counts as an outsider as long as he is from another town) and a bully (also an outsider, being English) who demands his complete attention. Again, this book, like the others in this series I have read, is very entertaining, suspenseful, as funny as it can be and a wonderful study of human condition. It is a page turner, very difficult to put down.

A Fun Highland Mystery! 27. November 2013
Von Cozy Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Death of a Outsider sees Hamish Macbeth leaving his beloved Lochdubh to spend three months covering for a police officer in the Highland town of Cnothan. With his beloved dog, Hamish gets to know the locals and discovers he's not the only "outsider" in Cnothan. There are quite a few, a lovely lass from Canadian and a married couple that the locals cannot stand. It seems that Mr Mainwaring has a way of causing the locals to dislike him, as he picks and prods his way into all their lives. When a skeleton turns up dead and it is discovered to belong to Mr Mainwaring, Macbeth and Inspector Blair set out to investigate the case and find out who disliked Mainwaring enough to want him dead.

I've liked the first two books in this series and I'm continuing on by listening to book 3, Death of a Outsider, on audio. I love seeing what Hamish gets up to and it's nice to see him away from Lochdubh for this adventure. He's trying to keep his mind off Priscilla, his crush and the girl that he can't quite see a future with, even though he wants to. He finds things interesting in Cnothan - especially with a very unattached Canadian artist. And of course there is a murder to solve!!

Speaking of the murder. I read a lot of murder mysteries and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised of who Mainwaring was killed and the discovering of his skeleton. Yes not a corpse but a skeleton. I haven't seen this in a previous mystery and I love how creative M.C. Beaton was with this.

I really enjoyed Death of a Outsider and will listen to more of these books on audio. It seems that there was a new narrator with this one - Shaun Grindell. He provides the voice for the rest of the audios in this series, and while it took me a little while to get used to his narration I am looking forward to seeing how he narrates future books.
