Death of a Ghost
Death of a Ghost | M. C. Beaton
11 posts | 4 read | 1 to read
There are many ruined castles in Scotland. One such lies outside the village of Drim. Hamish begins to hear reports that this castle is haunted and lights have been seen there at night, but he assumes it's some children or maybe the local lads going there to smoke pot, or, worse, inject themselves with drugs. Hamish says to his policeman, Charlie 'Clumsy' Carson, that they will both spend a night there. The keening wind explains the ghostly noises, but when Charlie falls through the floor, Hamish finds the body of a dead man propped up in a corner of the cellar. After Charlie is airlifted to the hospital, Chief Detective Inspector Blair arrives to investigate the body, but there is none to be found. Dismissed as a drunk making up stories, Hamish has to find and identify the body and its killer before the "ghost" can strike again.

Only have one more to go now until I'm up to date with the Hamish Macbeth murder mysteries! 😍
Another brilliant piece of work! Looks as though Hamish and Elspeth may rekindle things? 🤞 I didn't expect it to take the turn it did regarding who the murderer was though! Usually the murderer is in the story early on but it wasn't the case with this story! Lovely read though, great plot and always a few laughs in the story that lighten it up a bit! ☺

'..he failed to look in his rearview mirror where he might have seen a wild cat, sitting by the road, watching him go.'

So close to having Sonsie back again 😭💔

A very light, fast, read but I found the way the male characters thought and treated women to be unpleasant. Not sure I‘d read more.

My Sunday afternoon summed up in one picture 😺 #catsoflitsy
Can you believe Death of a Ghost is the 32nd Hamish Macbeth mystery?! The stories are becoming more & more silly, but I still read them all

While this installment of the Hamish Macbeth series was not as strong as others in the series, and there were a few sections that seemed disjointed, I still enjoyed reading Hamish's escapade into murder and mayhem.

BethFishReads Ohhhh I love the Hamish Macbeth books. A lot of fun. I've been reading them from the beginning 3y
candc320 Oh, really @BethFishReads ?! I need a book with lots of fun so this sounds perfect!! Hopefully I won't feel too far behind having not read the earlier books in the series. 3y
BethFishReads They are very light, escapist reading. Nothing complex or heavy -- just fun characters 3y

Just found out the pub date on this is February 21st. If anything can make an Canadian February less dreary it is a new Hamish Macbeth book. If you like cozy mysteries and haven't heard of this series please let me know if the comments and I'll recommend one for you to start with. Or just start at the beginning and enjoy the ride. Set in the Scottish Highlands. You get used to Hamish's name, don't worry.

minkyb I'm very excited! I definitely will start at the beginning! 3y
KendallMorganHall @minkyb - That is what I told my aunt to do and now she is hooked. She is as excited as I am that the new one is coming out! 3y
