Reviews of Death of a Maid

Overall customer rating: 5.000
by Stewie on May 21, 2009

Love the Hamish Macbeth stories and highly recommend them to anyone. Now have complete collection with exception of latest Death of a Witch. Will buy that some time in the future. Have read it thanks to our local library. Good light reading, always enjoyable, only problem is books read too quickly!!


The Lovable Hamish

by Francesca on Apr 15, 2008

Here he is again, hunting down a killer as usual, being tempted out of his bachelorhood as usual, and avoiding promotion as usual. The victim is nobody's friend and the killer is disagreeable enough to avoid sympathy. The dynamic of Hamish with his lady friends is a major part of the fun. Personally I like Priscilla, who comes and goes. The landscape enriches the plot, and the Highland people are endearing. There is, of course, the unpleasant superior officer to battle as well as the criminal. I suppose the series can continue until the author dies, and we will keep going as long as Hamish does. How does Ms Beaton sleep nights with all these plots on her mind?


Classic Hamish

by MysteryMom23 on Jun 18, 2007

Hamish MacBeth is one of the most entertaining characters in fiction today. The things he says and gets away with are a hoot. It's entertaining and challenging to try and figure out who did it and how he'll uncover the guilty party. This is a read again and again series, must own!
