Publisher's Summary

When Fergus Macleod, Lochdubh's abusive, drunk dustman is put in charge of the local recycling center, Hamish Macbeth smells trouble. Sure enough, Fergus, imbued with his new powers, becomes a bullying tyrant. When his body is found stuffed in a recycling bin, no one is sorry - including his long-suffering family. But Macbeth is surprised to find that many of the despicable dustman's victims refuse to talk - and when violence strikes again, the lanky lawman must quickly unearth the culprit among a litter of suspects... before the killer makes a clean getaway!

    "Relaxing and Humerous"

    If you have enjoyed earlier Hamish MacBeth stories, I believe you will enjoy this one.

    These are gentle, well plotted, humorous mysteries. They take place in a highland village populated by a colorful group of people. Hamish is a very clever policeman who seems lazy to some of his superiors because he doesn't want to be promoted and forced to move to a city. Gentle humor is woven into the story. If you are paying attention, you will smile, and possibly chuckle.

    This is not an action packed thriller. It is a "cozy" in the best sense of the word.

    "New Hamish Macbeth story!"
    What did you love best about Death of a Dustman?

    Charming and whimsical, "Death of a Dustman" combines the usual mix of a well-constructed mystery and gentle comedy.


    What about Graeme Malcolm’s performance did you like?

    Very well-read by Graeme Malcolm, this is a great listen for all Hamish Macbeth fans.

    Story
    "Crazy Plot but a Very Good Listen!"

    As usual the plot is far fetched and unbelievable but so what? If you have read other Hamish Macbeth mysteries you have probably grown fond of the quirky main character and will enjoy the many twists and turns of this book.

    Graeme Malcolm has a soft steady voice - very easy to listen to and just right for this series.
