Beaton's quirky, charming Hamish Macbeth is even more appealing as expressed in Davina Porter's good-natured narration. The unique and sometimes eccentric residents of Lochdub, Scotland, take on lives and personalities of their own as Porter bestows idiosyncrasies on each. Of course, the very best is Macbeth; listeners are privy as he labors in his meandering way to solve yet another murder. Regular fans will become adept at frequently used Scottish words and expressions. Beaton's most irresistible talent is creating characters with whom everyone, regardless of age, state, or situation, can identify (and sometimes cringe at). This is the perfect choice for mystery buffs who enjoy humor and for all who love the Scots. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 05]
