This is an auction for an audio book of DEATH OF A BORE by M C Beaton.

A Hamish Macbeth murder mystery.

Read by Paul Thornley. reviews:

"When John Heppel, a visiting writer to Lochdubh, proposes forming a writers' circle, the idea is met with much enthusiasm from local residents. However, once the classes get underway, attendance falters due to one undeniable fact: John Heppel is a long-winded bore. But is dullness a motive for murder? Hamish Macbeth begins looking for deeper meaning in the writer's stories, including a strange, unfinished soap opera script that seems to suggest a more sinister motive behind its author's unhappy ending."

"FIVE STARS! As usual, this is an excellent book in an excellent series. Many colorful characters, same old Hamish ever endearing. The only fault I find is in the reason for the murder. I doubt if anybody would murder an author in order to keep him from finding out that you are not using his script as written. Of course there is always the artistic temperament I guess..."

"FIVE STARS!!!! The Hamish Macbeth series delivers mysteries reminiscent of the classical style of Agatha Christie. The village of Lochdubh is filled with picturesque scenery and quaint characters. Hamish, himself, displays a good natured charm and keen intelligence. If you're looking for a solid, traditional mystery, you've found it."

"FIVE STARS!!! In "Death of a Bore", just as in "Death of a Scriptwriter", M.C. Beaton gives the reader a wickedly real view of the artificial lives of the employees in the television industry. There are times when reading the book is like having a good gossip with a close friend over tea and toast."
