Hollywood in the Highlands

With the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe away in London, Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth pines for company during the long Scottish winter. He gets his wish-and more-when a troupe of flashy, urbane filmmakers clambers into the nearby town of Drim. Before long bedlam erupts around their make-believe mystery ... and culminates in the sudden appearance of one very real corpse.

The initial suspect in the killing is one Patricia Martyn-Broyd, the aging mystery writer furious that her musty old cozies are getting a risque face-lift for their television reincarnation. Yet, going behind the scenes, Hamish soon finds a town full of locals bitten by the movie bug and a cast of quarreling show-business types, all harboring their own secrets, lies, and hidden agendas. And as the culprit strikes again, Hamish must quickly find the right killer-or script the wrong finale to a show gone murderously awry.
