This is the 32nd installment in the Hamish Macbeth series--yet listeners can jump right in. Graeme Malcolm's narration fits the somewhat crabby but brilliant Scottish police sergeant perfectly. As Macbeth investigates ghostly noises at an old castle, discovering a corpse in the process, Malcolm captures the voice of every character, male and female, without overplaying the Scottish accents. Experiencing this book on audio presents a wonderful advantage as listeners don't need to wonder how Gaelic words like "Lochdubh" are pronounced. The murders keep occurring, and Macbeth keeps solving them with the help, and hindrance, of his colleagues, friends, and acquaintances. Malcolm's evenly paced narration offers a lovely vehicle for the story. M.M.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2017]
