Death of a Green-Eyed Monster - Hamish Macbeth (Hardback)M. C. Beaton (author)
Pretty, young, urban and unsuitable in every other possible way she may be, but Hamish Macbeth’s new police constable Dorothy McIver proves her worth in gold when a brutal murder shakes the idyll of Lochdubh in the latest instalment of M.C. Beaton’s deliciously entertaining series.
No one in Lochdubh expects Dorothy to stay for long...
She is, after all, entirely unsuitable. She's an uptown girl, used to a fancy lifestyle in the big city of Glasgow. She'll never fit in. And how is that work-shy rogue Hamish Macbeth supposed to get anything done when his new assistant is such a distraction? The village needs a police sergeant who can get on with his job, not one who's constantly swooning over his pretty young constable.
Yet PC Dorothy McIver quickly shows how determined she is to win over the locals, and she certainly seems to bring out the best in Macbeth. Then comes a brutal murder and the pair find themselves plunged into a tangled web of conspiracy that acquires a sinister strand when the chilling shadow of Glasgow's underworld creeps to the Highlands and the peaceful village of Lochdubh.
Through it all, the bond between Hamish and Dorothy grows ever stronger. Has Hamish Macbeth finally found the love of his life - and can he track down the murderer before any hope he has for a blissful future is destroyed?
