Village Constable Hamish Macbeth has suspects aplenty when a trouble making wealthy newcomer dies under suspicious circumstances. Hamish sorts the truth from the lies while maintaining his reputation as a lazy local bobby with no ambition. In truth, Hamish is as capable as Davina Porter's narration is entertaining. Porter captures Hamish's laconic charm as vividly as she personifies all the other set-piece village characters. Her accents and vocal characterizations add a telling--and very funny--depth of social commentary to the simple story. Listen for the down-at-the-heels aging rock star, who sounds like a Beatles band member gone wrong. Delightful. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/ JAN 02]
