Mrs. Gillespie, cleaning lady, gossip, and blackmailer, is found by Constable Hamish Macbeth conked dead by her own pail of water. There are many who might have killed her. Graeme Malcolm 's Scottish burrs are his finest accent, and he relishes Hamish and his doings with obvious delight. The story is filled with juicy eccentrics whom Malcolm has a field day bringing to life--from the rude "lady of the manor" to the cheerful widower, Mr. Gillespie, who just wants to watch videos. Part of a series, this mystery continues, with abundant subplots, to enlighten the listener about Hamish's confused love life, his dog and cat, and his never-ending battle to remain a simple copper.
