Scottish Highland Sergeant Hamish Macbeth disbelieves summer student Morag – she lost memories of her pub night and sketchbook – until she turns up dead. As does witness, layabout Fergus. In Cnothan, “sour locals” take “pride in keeping themselves to themselves”, to keep their jobs at the Gilchrist dress factory. Past amorous attentions and police politics lie answers.
Another good book in the Hamish MacBeth Series but not one of the author’s best. Still a fast pleasant read.
