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." Now, in a charade that puts the intractable Highlander in a designer suit among the sharks of the underworld, Hamish's craving for justice will be tempered by a dependence on Olivia. For the lanky lawman, it's time to sink or swim - and it would be equally dangerous to flounder or fall in love.

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.
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.
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.
Hamish fights the odds and goes for truth.
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!!
