Review:- M C BEATON - “Death of an Outsider”

Year Published: - 1988
Where the book was from:- My own copy
ISBN: - 978-1-84529-668-1
Pages: - 206pp
Genre: - Cosy crime
Location:- Highlands of Scotland
How I came across it: - Gradually reading the series
Rating: - ***** **
One sentence summary:-
Constable MacBeth likes a quiet life but there’s not much chance of him getting it when he is seconded to a local town to ‘mind the shop’ while the sergeant is away, especially when an offcomer dies in a most unusual way.

Describe the plot without giving anything away:-
Nobody in the cloistered Highlands town of Cnothan, where Constable Macbeth is on temporary duty, likes the abrasive Englishman, William Mainwaring. Will he be the outsider who dies?

General comments:-
The third book in the Hamish MacBeth series)

The sun rose shortly after nine in the morning, where it sulked along the horizon for a few hours before disappearing around two in the afternoon.
(My friends in the Western Isles will recognize that concept of the sun skulking around the horizon at this time of year!!!)

AUTHOR Notes:- M C Beaton
