Death of a Traveling Man: The Hamish Macbeth Mysteries, Book 9 | [M. C. Beaton]

Death of a Traveling Man: The Hamish Macbeth Mysteries, Book 9

Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth's life is going to pot. He has - horrors! - been promoted, his new boss is a dunce, and a self-proclaimed traveler named Sean and his girlfriend have parked their rusty eyesore of a van in the middle of the village. Hamish smells trouble, and he's right, as usual. The doctor's drugs go missing. Money vanishes. Neighbors suddenly become unneighborly. The tension only explodes after the itinerant Sean is found brutally beaten to death in his camper.

Publisher's Summary

Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth's life is going to pot. He has - horrors! - been promoted, his new boss is a dunce, and a self-proclaimed traveler named Sean and his girlfriend have parked their rusty eyesore of a van in the middle of the village. Hamish smells trouble, and he's right, as usual. The doctor's drugs go missing. Money vanishes. Neighbors suddenly become unneighborly. The tension only explodes after the itinerant Sean is found brutally beaten to death in his camper. Suspicion quickly falls on his girlfriend, but with nobody willing to talk, the canny Hamish faces the tough task of worming the facts out of the villagers. As he uncovers a bizarre story around the murdered traveler, Macbeth knows he must find the truth soon - before the killer gets away for good.

Police Sergeant Hamish Macbeth's new promotion means more money, but it also means that an eager beaver of a policeman has been thrust upon him, interfering with Hamish's easygoing way of life. Fans of the lazy Hamish will delight in seeing him pitted against a zealous young officer while solving a disturbing murder.

    "Monteath was advertised as narrator, but alas!"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book, yes, the narrator, no.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Hamish.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Shaun Grindell’s performances?

    No, not in this series.


    Did Death of a Traveling Man inspire you to do anything?

    Move to his village.


    Any additional comments?

    David Monteath is given as the narrator when one is referred to Audible after buying the Kindle book. I listened to the sample of Monteath's narration and bought the book. Oh no! It was Shaun Grindell again! I have been trapped with Grindell's rendering of a Hamish story for the third time, I think. Now, I am hesitant to buy any more in this series, even though they are my favourite at the moment. Because I do not enjoy Grindell. And I feel tricked.
