When Hamish Macbeth, local constable of the Scottish village of Lochdubh, tries to break up one of the many fights involving Randy "Macho Man" Duggan, the ruffian challenges him to a fistfight. Everyone expects Macbeth to take a beating from the man who claims to be a professional wrestler, but on the chosen day, Duggan is found shot to death - and Macbeth is the likeliest suspect.
The brutal Macho Man left a trail of fear and hatred in his wake, and Macbeth must find the murderer, clear his name, and restore his Highland paradise to its usual tranquility amid all the excitement.

It is the expected Hamish Macbeth style of story and that is what I want when I buy these books - not totally obvious murder but not too hard to follow if I zone out on a run, good characters, good humor, etc.
I prefer the past Hamish Macbeth narrators to Mr. Grindell. I just didn't put his voice to the vision I have of Hamish Macbeth.
I loved this series and the narrator Graeme Malcolm, but I won't buy any more done by this new narrator.
Terrible Scottish accent and unable to carry voices distinct enough for recognizing each character
I love Hamish, and enjoy listening and re-listening to these stories.
This is the first book I've listened to with this narrator, and his is neither the voice nor the accent to replace Mr. Malcolm as narrator. His reading lacks good phrasing and the rhythm and word stresses are often wrong, distracting from the story.
