Death of a Outsider sees Hamish Macbeth leaving his beloved Lochdubh to spend three months covering for a police officer in the Highland town . I really enjoyed Death of a Outsider and will listen to more of these books on audio.

Death of a Outsider sees Hamish Macbeth leaving his beloved Lochdubh to spend three months covering for a police officer in the Highland town of Cnothan. With his beloved dog, Hamish gets to know the locals and discovers he's not the only "outsider" in Cnothan. There are quite a few, a lovely lass from Canadian and a married couple that the locals cannot stand. It seems that there was a new narrator with this one - Shaun Grindell.

Hamish Macbeth - 3 ). . Constable Hamish Macbeth sat in the small country bus that was bearing him away from Lochdubh – away from the west coast of Sutherland, away from his police-station home. Nobody in the cloistered Highlands town of Cnothan, where Constable Macbeth is on temporary duty, had liked the abrasive Englishman, William Mainwaring, and now that he’s been murdered no one much minds. His dog, Towser, a great yellowish mongrel, put a large paw on his knee, but the policeman did not notice. The dog sighed and heaved itself up onto the seat beside him and joined his master in staring out of the window.

I have been reading the Hamish MacBeth series out of order, but I have been trying
to read the first few books in order. Here, Hamish gets a change of scenery in the
Christian town of Cnothan, where people keep to themselves. Then he meets a man,
who has angered the whole town by his actions. So when he goes missing along with
another man, it's good riddance until they find something peculiar concerning one of
the missing men. . .I will not spoil it for you, but it has good twists and turns as Hamish
tries to outwit and outthink Blair. Must read for Mystery lovers!

Death of a Outsider sees Hamish Macbeth leaving his beloved Lochdubh to spend three months covering for a police officer in the Highland town of Cnothan. With his beloved dog, Hamish gets to know the locals and discovers he's not the only "outsider" in Cnothan. There are quite a few, a lovely lass from Canadian and a married couple that the locals cannot stand. It seems that Mr Mainwaring has a way of causing the locals to dislike him, as he picks and prods his way into all their lives. When a skeleton turns up dead and it is discovered to belong to Mr Mainwaring, Macbeth and Inspector Blair set out to investigate the case and find out who disliked Mainwaring enough to want him dead.

I've liked the first two books in this series and I'm continuing on by listening to book 3, Death of a Outsider, on audio. I love seeing what Hamish gets up to and it's nice to see him away from Lochdubh for this adventure. He's trying to keep his mind off Priscilla, his crush and the girl that he can't quite see a future with, even though he wants to. He finds things interesting in Cnothan - especially with a very unattached Canadian artist. And of course there is a murder to solve!!

Speaking of the murder. I read a lot of murder mysteries and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised of who Mainwaring was killed and the discovering of his skeleton. Yes not a corpse but a skeleton. I haven't seen this in a previous mystery and I love how creative M.C. Beaton was with this.

I really enjoyed Death of a Outsider and will listen to more of these books on audio. It seems that there was a new narrator with this one - Shaun Grindell. He provides the voice for the rest of the audios in this series, and while it took me a little while to get used to his narration I am looking forward to seeing how he narrates future books.

Delightful mystery/comedy of individualistic Scottish copper fighting crime in a small village... the criminals are never locals/primary characters. When the wonderful author has described a despicable character, you can be pretty sure they will be the first 'victim'. Some of the later audio versions are wonderfully done. There are many stories in the series and the author is prolific/many pen names.

This was another quick mystery by M.C. Beaton based in the Scottish Highlands. Hammish Macbeth is required by his superiors to leave his beloved little town, which sees very little crime and go to another more northern town of Cnothan. Cnothan seems to be more darker than Hammish is used to, and does not like outsiders...and immediately, Hammish feels cranky and out-of-sorts. The people are not friendly, but they are more friendly to him and ready to gossip about one particular man they all seem to loathe. When that man turns up dead, and skeletonized in a lobster tank, and then Hammish's nemesis, Inspector Blair shows up to take over the investigation...Hammish's life becomes almost unbearable. So he really wants to solve this murder so he can return to his Lochdub, and normal life.

This book was a bit 'darker' than 'Death of a Cad', and not as clean. But it was still a fun read and very fast. These are fun books to get on Kindle (cheaper too). You can recognize that these books were written in the 1980's because of the politics, the news, and even the mention of the clothing (Beaton mentioned the big pads in the women's dresses). So that ages the books a bit, but makes them interesting as well...

These are fun books and good books, but not great writing on the par of Shakespeare or Tolkien which is why I'm not giving it five stars.

In this third book in this cozy mystery series, Constable Hamish Macbeth, along with his dog, Towser, is parted from his beloved village of Lochdubh, when he is temporarily transferred to the village of Cnothan for several months to cover for a fellow officer who is on an extended vacation.

Unhappy at this turn of events, Hamish tries to make the best of it, though the villagers are far from friendly. Things start looking up for Hamish, when he catches the eye of Jenny, a pretty young local artist. She helps Hamish take his mind off Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, who has taken off for London. Then, a murder takes place, and Hamish is firmly in his element, despite obstacles thrust in his way by none other than Deputy Chief Inspector Blair.

Laced with sly humor and engaging characters, this series gets better with each book. As with all cozy mysteries, it is not so much the mystery that is of import but the characters that revolve around the mystery. While the mysteries are intriguing, they are the framework around which the characters evolve. In the endearing character of Hamish Macbeth, the author, a born storyteller, has created a sure fire winner, who is bound to win many fans of the cozy mystery genre.

????????????????????????
The MC Beaton Hamish Macbeth detective series has many good books. This one is a gem. It is one of the earlier books in the series so many of most familiar characters of later books are missing but Beaton again fills her writing with characters worth meeting. In this book Hamish is taken away from his beloved Lochdubh to fill in for the sergeant of Cnothan. For readers familiar with the series, this sets up numerous possibilities for problems. This book is well-crafted and a "quick read". It is less involved than some of Beaton's more recent books but may be more enjoyable for it. if you want to escape into the Highlands of Scotland for an enjoyable reading experience this may be the book for you.
