From the author of the Agatha Raisin television series...DEATH OF YESTERDAY: A Hamish Macbeth MysteryWhen a local woman tells Sergeant Hamish Macbeth that she doesn't remember what happened the previous evening, he doesn't begin to worry. She had been out drinking, after all, and he'd prefer not to be bothered with such an arrogant and annoying woman. But when her body is discovered, Hamish is forced to investigate a crime that the only known witness--now dead--had forgotten.
Near the start of Beaton's delightful 29th Hamish Macbeth mystery (after 2012's Death of a Kingfisher), art student Morag Merrilea complains to the Scottish police sergeant about the theft of her sketchbook in a pub where she was drinking heavily one night. When Morag disappears and later turns up dead, Macbeth attempts to solve the crime, but blustery Detective Chief Superintendent Blair keeps ordering him to do the most menial tasks. Meanwhile, Macbeth's love life has more snags than an old wool sweater, as shown by his strained relationships with Priscilla Halburton-Smythe and Elspeth Grant, not to mention his infatuation with Hannah Fleming, the sister of suspect Geordie Fleming. A second victim found by Macbeth ups the pressure and media interest. While Macbeth matches wits with a desperate and elusive killer, the dreadful Palfour teens from Death of a Kingfisher, Olivia and Charles, muddy the investigative waters. Cozy fans are in for a treat.

Death of Yesterday
From the moment I picked up M. C. Beaton book with Hamish Macbeth I was hooked. As soon as I finished one can' t wait for the next one. This was M. C. Beaton at her best. She knows her characters inside and out never losing sight of who they are.
Death of Yesterday kept me enthralled from start to finish. It was like you we're with Hamish every step of the way. I would recommend this and all other Hamish Macbeth book.
Death of yesterday
For some reason this book Downloads only 190 pages, no matter how I try to correct this problem. Such a disappointment as MC Beaton books are always an entertaining read.
