I found that this book was a bit of a disappointment. I have loved Hamish Macbeth for a long time, and enjoyed all the books. I love Hamish and his idyllic life in Lochdubh. I love the recurring characters like Willie Loman and Archie MacDonald. It's like visiting old friends when I read a Hamish Macbeth mystery. But this book, I found, did a lot of jumping around and violent episodes kept on occurring with no lead-up or explanation. It felt like I was on a runaway train at times. But it is still Hamish, and I love his character. The shock and awe that keeps occurring in this book did confuse me somewhat. It certainly didn't seem like good old sleepy Lochdubh with all the violent murders and bad guys running around.
