"Delightful...Cozy fans are in for a treat."—Publishers Weekly

"This red-headed police sergeant living in the small village of Lochdubh, Scotland is such a hoot and a howl that you never want to see this character come to an end...There's never a dull moment in the life of Hamish Macbeth and, thankfully, this author keeps churning out books so Hamish's fans can sit back and enjoy the fun. A+!"—New England News -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

Ich habe inzwischen ganz viele ihrer Romane gelesen. Am Anfang (mit der Agatha Raisin Serie) fand ich ihren Schreibstil etwas albern, aber nachdem ich mich länger damit befasst habe, weiß ich, dass was und wie sie schreibt ihr ganz bewusst ist und ist durchaus unterhaltsam. Diese Serie mit dem skurrilen schottischen Polizisten ist herrlich. Ich lese auf Englisch, daher weiß ich nicht ob die Bücher ihre Leichtigkeit in der Übersetzung behalten. Schade, wenn nicht.

Irgendwer hat hier in den Rezensionen geschrieben, dass M. C. Beaton die letzten Hamish-Bücher vielleicht von Adepten schreiben ließ. Kann ich mir gut vorstellen - aber das wäre ja nicht schlimm, wenn die Produkte qualitativ auf der Höhe wären. Kann man von dem hier allerdings nicht behaupten.

BREAKS MY HEART TO WRITE THIS REVIEW. 26. Mai 2013
Von D. Blankenship - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
They say that "all good things must eventually come to and end," and I am extremely sad to tell you that this particular series has probably hit that point. This is (as far as I know) number 29 in my beloved Hamish Macbeth Mysteries. These books have been around since the mid 1980s when I first started reading them and I can assure you I have read them all...several of which I have read multiple times. Hamish, the local constable in a small Scottish village, has become almost a friend in my mind and I have to tell you I miss him. He certainly was not present in this cozy mystery nor was he present in the novel which preceded this one, "Death of A Kingfisher."It breaks my heart to write a review such as this.

This current novel, "Death of Yesterday," (Where on earth did the author come up with this title?), I had high hopes for feeling that the previous novel may have been just a fluke. I was wrong. While this one is not as wretched as Kingfisher, it most certainly is a mess and comes pretty close.

Being extremely familiar with all the books in this series I can assure you that this current offering is merely a cut and paste job, a very thin shadow of what was one of my top five cozy mystery series. The author has used the same ploys, plot twists, and indeed, almost the same sentences and paragraphs from previous novels. I could read one line, any line, of this current book and pretty well know almost to the word what was coming next...arrrrgh! The entire story seemed to be hurried and the author threw in so many unnecessary and superficial characters that it became quite difficult to follow the story.

And the body count...oh, my! When I read a cozy I normally expect one, sometimes two, very mild murders. Hey that is part of the genre. But in this one I might as well have been reading one of those police procedurals where the authorities are dealing with mass murders or even watch one of those chainsaw films I run across on late night T.V. I actually almost lost count of the dead bodies and almost dead bodies in this one. This IS NOT the reason I read these things!

Now what is sort of sad, but was the only redeeming feature of this book when all is said and done, is the fact that mixed into this awful mess were flashes here and there of the old Hamish stories. These were delightful paragraphs and each time I hit one of them I felt that maybe the author was turning a corner. Alas, my hopes were quickly shattered as I read on.

Hamish's love life has been done over and over and over again...same scenario, same results. I should also note that there was not one likeable character in this entire book and that would include Hamish. It would be difficult to find any location in the world populated my so many surely, critical and attitude impaired people. Even the animals, both dog and cat, usually a delight in these novels, only slept and ate and seemed more of a "bother" than anything else.

And the ending of this work.....!

I am giving this one two stars for the simple reason that I feel a loyalty to both the author who has given me much reading pleasure for the past 30 years and of course a loyality to Hamish. Had this been another author or protagonist I would give it one star. Will I read the next novel? Yes I will and hope for better.

Wish it was better. 1. April 2013
Von John DeNoma - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was very disappointed in this book. In my opinion, it had the feel of being a combination of excerpts that were deleted from other books. I actually could not wait until the book was completely read through, just to get it over with. I am a big fan of the previous books in this series. Please judge for yourself.

It seems the only thing that has evolved in this series is the body count 26. April 2013
Von Mary Lavers - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I have been a huge fan of M.C. Beaton--particularly the Hamish Macbeth series--for so long that I get very excited every time I see a new book in the series. So excited, in fact, that I seem to forget all of the problems the books have had over the years, especially recently.

When I first started reading them, I was charmed by the backwards village of Lochdubh in the Scottish Highlands, a place that seemed untouched by modernity and was, as a result, at least twenty years behind the values of modern society. Villagers all knew each other and worried more about raising sheep and catching fish than, say, keeping up with the stock market or latest celebrity gossip. Of course, people would also gloss over drunk driving and spousal abuse as "private matters" and would be shocked by outsiders with their flashy clothes and promiscuous ways. Independent women, artists, homosexuals and anyone with a non-Scottish accent were criticized harshly. Still, I stuck with the books because I understood why the village would be twenty years or so behind the times. They were isolated in the Highlands and slow to change.

But now the series itself is nearly thirty years old (the first book was published in 1985, I believe) and not much has changed. It's hard to keep thinking of the villagers' small-mindedness as "charming" when they are now closer to fifty years behind the times.

And it's not just the cultural values that are hopelessly (and implausibly) stagnant. It's also Hamish himself. He still, after nearly three decades, pines for the beautiful Priscilla, his one-time fiancée (they were engaged for, I would say, less than an hour but it was evidently enough to make him moan about it for the rest of his natural life). He still considers the option of marrying his perennial second choice, Elspeth. I understand the series is supposed to have a "timeless" quality, but if we were to consider that time were passing--even slowly--we would have to accept that Hamish was at least in his fifties or sixties by now, still waiting to settle down with one of the women he dated decades ago.

So maybe we're supposed to think that no time passes at all. But it doesn't mitigate the repetitiveness of the books. In every single book you can expect that Hamish's irritation will be expressed by his accent becoming more "sibilant" (if you can find a book in the series that does not use that exact word, I'll give you a nickel). In nearly every book, he will go to the town's one Italian restaurant where he will be served by Willie Lamont while the villagers gossip about him and his female companion, whoever she may be. In nearly every book, he will leave the care of his dog and his wild cat to his (only) friend, Angela Brodie, wife of Dr. Brodie. In nearly every book he will be nearly thwarted by his boss, Blair, only to solve the crime on his own.

After nearly thirty books in as many years, I'm not sure I want to hear the same details over and over and over and over again. It seems the only thing that has evolved in this series is the body count.

The most boring book I've ever read! 3. April 2013
Von Margaret Freeburn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I have read all the Hamish MacBeth books and either lover or liked them very much! However, this one bored me so much that I think I will never buy any more of them. Every twist in the plots that this book had came from a previous one! I'd read this part and it would be a rehash of Death of a Maid! Read on and remember that the next twist came from Death of a Kingfisher! Etc... Then comes the part where the evil doer escapes over and over and over again! Seemed like if you put her in a lead coffin, welding the lid on, dumped that into a ten foot deap pool of cement, dropped that into a volcano on another planet she would be back in your parlor in about twenty minutes. And the once again rehash of Hamish getting engaged to Elspeth, only to have Priscilla entering the scene to mess things up is the last time I could read it! In fact I threw the book into the give away pile without finishing it when that happened! Beaton may have run out of new ideas, or she may have just typed this out without thinking to earn money! But because of whichever reason she has inadvertantly retitled this book "Death of Hamish MacBeth!".

Same old, same old: a strength and a weakness. 11. Mai 2013

I think I am suffering from Hamish Burn Out. How can he be so smart with everyone except women and so perceptive in every relationship except his own. I am beginning to suspect he deserves to be alone.
