    Recovering drug addict Tommy Jarret rents a Scottish chaletto check out reports of a sea monster near the dour village of Drim. But when he is found dead of an apparent drug overdose, Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth suspects foul play. Deciding to pose undercover, Hamish infiltrates the illicit drug trade in nearby Strathbane, but his daft scheme springs a leak when he is teamed with a tough Glasgow detective inspector named Olivia Chater, a.k.a. "concrete knickers."

    Would you listen to Death of an Addict again? Why?

    Death of an Addict has many complex characters and reading it several times gives you new an interesting insights to the world of Hamish Macbeth..Hamish is so refreshing and fun because he is at peace with himself and yet driven to do the right thing. He also has his own flaws which make him more real and lovable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hamish is my very favorite but the doctor and his wife are always there with wisdom and comfort.. I still love Priscilla and hope someday she will warm up. She is kind and wise and beautiful and loves the pets she just needs to accept who Hamish is and not try to change him.


    What does Shaun Grindell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love Shaun's reading because it is captures Hamish in a special way. He sounds more like Robert Carlyle who plays Hamish in the BBC series and it is more casual than Graham's voice. I do want to say that Graham has a wonderful voice and makes me still want me to listen to every Hamish book I can.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hamish fights the odds and goes for truth.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope you fill in the blanks and get the other Hamish books. M. C Beaton is amazing I love the Agatha Raisin and Poor Relations books too!! Thanks for the fun!!

  • Pontoon: A Novel of Lake Wobegon

    Garrison Keillor's latest book is about the wedding of a girl named Dede Ingebretson, who comes home from California with a guy named Brent. Dede has made a fortune in veterinary aromatherapy; Brent bears a strong resemblance to a man wanted for extortion who's pictured on a poster in the town's post office. Then there's the memorial service for Dede's aunt Evelyn, who led a footloose and adventurous life after the death of her husband 17 years previously.

    What disappointed you about Pontoon?

    I thought the sex life of seniors is not a joke and if he valued the women the story was about the author wouldn't make her look so crude.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Elizabeth Gaskell


    What didn???t you like about Garrison Keillor???s performance?

    I have enjoyed Garrison in the past and expected a charming, funny tale like his past stories. Peter Mayle does this well and Garrison does in other books.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Pontoon?

    I didn't finish the book .


    Any additional comments?

    I will be more selective in the future. Ratings are difficult because we all look at things in different ways.
