Review - Death of a Prankster

Title:  Death of a Prankster

Author M.C. Beaton

Mass Market Paperback: 176 pages


Publisher: Fawcett

ISBN-10: 0804111022


A Snowstorm. An old secluded mansion. An annoying old man who plays mean pranks on everyone around him. Throw in lots of money, and you know someone is gloing to kill him. And this house is full of suspects. Hamish has to sort through it all to solve the case. A really enjoyable mystery and I really didnt see where it was going to one clue was dropped and then it all started coming together in a very satisfying way.

Hamish Macbeth is one of my favorite characters.  He is just such a regular guy kind of character who does have a sense for getting to the root of crimes (despite his superiors interference).  And Lochludb (I may have spelle dthat wrong) is such an interesting little Scottish town.
