Death of a Dreamer, Paperback / softback Book

Death of a Dreamer Paperback / softback

Part of the Hamish Macbeth series

Paperback / softback

Description

She couldn't paint to save her life - so someone's given her a lesson by taking it!Most newcomers don't stay long in remote Lochdubh - usually boredom, dampness and nosy locals drive them out.

But it looks as if artist Effie Garrard has come to stay.

When Hamish Macbeth calls on her he's amazed to find the woman in residence after a particularly harsh winter.

Unfortunately, Effie is also quite delusional, having convinced herself that fellow local artist Jock Fleming is in love with her and that they are engaged.

But after a lover's scrap with Jock, Effie is found dead, poisoned by hemlock.

Suicide or murder? It's up to Hamish to find out whether the dreamer's death is the result of something much more serious than a broken heart . . . Praise for M.C. Beaton 'The detective novels of M. C. Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status' Anne Robinson, The Times'The books are a delight: clever, intricate, sardonic and amazingly true to the real Highlands' Kerry Greenwood'It's always a special treat to return to Lochdubh' New York Times
