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

A Hamish Macbeth murder mystery.

Read by David Monteath. reviews:

"The rugged landscape of Scotland attracts dreamers who move north, wrapped in fantasies of enjoying the simple life. They usually don't last, but it looks as if Effie Garrard has come to stay. When Constable Hamish Macbeth calls on her, he's amazed that she has weathered the difficult winter. But Effie is quite delusional, imagining that she's engaged to local artist Jock Fleming. Then Effie is found in the mountains, poisoned by hemlock..."

"FIVE STARS!! I love the Hamish MacBeth mysteries. The murders are so numerous as to relegate this remote part of Scotland as the murder capital of the world but the recurring characters begin to feel like friends, so the listening is wonderful. This is one series of books that I prefer on CD rather than in book form, simply because the reader's dialects and inflections add so much to the printed word. Wonderful mystery romps!"

"FIVE STARS!!!! With the dollar falling it might be too expensive to visit Scotland but, fortunately, there's an alternative. The audiobook "Death of a Dreamer" by M.C. Beaton will transport you to the bonnie banks! Full of wonderful characters and equally wonderful locales, this engaging mystery will quickly have you entranced and longing for a spot a tea or a pint of beer. Welcome to Hamish Macbeth country: a small Scottish town populated with a host of regulars who'll make you want to listen to all the audiobooks in this series. A great story, a great locale, and a great narrator. Ach, give it a listen."
