Publisher's Summary

There are many ruined castles in Scotland. One such lies outside the village of Drim. Hamish begins to hear reports that this castle is haunted and lights have been seen there at night, but he assumes it's some children or maybe the local lads going there to smoke pot, or, worse, inject themselves with drugs. Hamish says to his policeman, Charlie 'Clumsy' Carson, that they will both spend a night there.

The keening wind explains the ghostly noises, but when Charlie falls through the floor, Hamish finds the body of a dead man propped up in a corner of the cellar. After Charlie is airlifted to the hospital, Chief Detective Inspector Blair arrives to investigate the body, but there is none to be found. Dismissed as a drunk making up stories, Hamish has to find and identify the body and its killer before the 'ghost' can strike again.

    "MacBeth is back on the best!"

    Another spell binding Adventure with Hamish. I took delivery yesterday and could not stop listening until I finished the book. Is Banished life coming together at last? You be the judge! MC, another winner. David Monteath is to be congratulated on his atmospheric description of the book. Brilliant.

    "Very good "

    Well drawn characters, brilliantly read by David Monteith. A strong storey line with old, loved, characters developed and new ones introduced. The reader is in the midst of the Highland weather with Hamish Macbeth both baddies and the climate.

    "Hamish goes from strength to strength"
    Any additional comments?

    Much as I enjoy Angela Raisin, Hamish Macbeth remains my favourite Beaton character. He once again outthinks the brains of Strathbane Police as he deals with deaths occurring after smuggling is suspected off the Sutherland coast, plus the continuing departmental struggles between his superiors, with the help of a new sidekick. Priscilla and Elspeth appear briefly but Hamish remains a bachelor, notwithstanding the efforts of the ladies of Lochdubh!

    "Great listening"

    Really great story and David Monteath reads Hamish Macbeth stories brilliantly. The description of the setting for the story really comes to life you can really see it.
