Death of a Maid, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Amazing news is spreading like wildfire across the Scottish countryside: the most famous of all Highland bachelors, police sergeant Hamish Macbeth, is planning to marry at last!

Everyone in the village of Lochdubh adores Josie McSween, Hamish's newest constable and blushing bride-to-be.

While locals think she is quite a catch, Hamish has a severe case of pre-nuptial jitters...after all, if it wasn't for the recent murder of a beautiful woman in a neighbouring village there wouldn't be a wedding in the first place. For it was a mysterious Valentine's Day card - delivered to the victim before her death - which initially drew Hamish and Josie together in the investigation. And now, as they work side by side, they soon discover that the woman's list of admirers was endless - confirming Hamish's suspicion that love can be deaf, blind...and deadly!

Review by

In this one our Hamish wins a prize in a local raffle of the services of a cleaning lady. Don't really know why this is called Death of a Maid and not Death of a Charwoman. Anyway Mrs Gillespie the cleaner in question,is a nasty old woman,who also deals in a touch of blackmail on the side.I am not letting anything out,when I tell you that she is soon found murdered with a blow from her own bucket. Hamish soon investigates and comes up against his superior, the obnoxious Blair.

Also in the Hamish Macbeth series   |  View all
