Mystery & Suspense • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1987

Constable Hamish Macbeth, a one-man police force in Scotland's Highlands, has a suspicious death on his hands. The victim is a cad staying at a local estate. The trouble is that everyone but Macbeth thinks it's an accident. Can he find out whodunit and woo the comely daughter of the estate? It takes Davina Porter a little time to settle into the Scottish accent of the main character. But when she does, her narration sparkles. Her voice is lyrical when it needs to be, but low and gruff when she becomes the male characters. Not only is her narrative pacing adept, but she succinctly captures the cadence of Scottish speech.
