When Police Sergeant Hamish Macbeth hears reports of a haunted castle near Drim, he assumes the eerie noises and lights reported by the villagers are just local teenagers going there to smoke pot or, worse, inject themselves with drugs. Still, Hamish decides that he and his policeman, Charlie "Clumsy" Carson, will spend the night at the ruined castle to get to the bottom of the rumors once and for all. There's no sign of any ghost...but then Charlie disappears through the floor. It turns out he's fallen into the cellar. And what Hamish and Charlie find there is worse than a ghost: a dead body propped against the wall. Waiting for help to arrive, Hamish and Charlie leave the castle just for a moment--to eat bacon baps--but when they return, the body is nowhere to be seen. It's clear something strange--and deadly--is going on at the castle, and Hamish must get to the bottom of it before the "ghost" can strike again.… (mere)

Jumps all around, seems to forget some murders then return to them, unlikely ending. I think the author may have run out of sensible things to do with this character, who plays dumb because he does not want to be promoted away from the village he loves.

Macbeth and the Disappearing Deceased
Review of the Hachette audiobook edition released simultaneously with the Grand Central Publishing hardcover edition (2017)

Death of a Ghost finds Hamish Macbeth and his clumsy constable Charlie Carter discovering a dead body in a supposed haunted castle and having it disappear on them when they return to the site with further police forces and a forensic team. I did find this one to be below average for the series perhaps due to over exposure (i've read about 30 in the past year of lockdown) or perhaps due to author M.C. Beaton relying on too many uninteresting subplots which seemed to drag the book out. I do remember the bulk of the series with fondness, but it was the earlier books of the series that were the more charming.

I'm now into the final few of the 34* Hamish Macbeth cozy mystery series set in the Scottish Highlands centered around the fictional village of Lochdubh. I wish I could slow down my reading & listening in order to make them last longer, but they are so irresistible that they have become my go-to default read during this continuing lockdown (Ontario, Canada where I live is currently still in a stay-at-home order situation until possibly June, 2021). Fortunately the library is operating efficiently with their holds system and their curbside pickup. They also provide the opportunity of online audiobook loans via Overdrive.

*No. 34 Death of a Love (2021?) has yet to be released due to delays following M.C. Beaton's (aka Marion Chesney's) passing in late 2019. ( )

Another enjoyable Hamish adventure where he again solves lots of complicated murders with all sorts of eccentric characters ( )

A typical Hamish Macbeth mystery. It is nice to come back to a nice cozy mystery where nothing too terrible will happen. Very relaxing. Graeme Malcolm is a wonderful narrator. Great accent! ( )

Death of a Ghost is an odd book. If one was to judge the book based upon the title, one would expect a mystery involving ghosts or at the very least something involving a murder of past years. However, the story has nothing to do with ghosts or people of the past in the characters' lives. It is just a modern day series of murders that the local police must solve. The book takes place in Scotland. The reader has no problem visualizing the highlands and the cold weather. There is really nothing special about the book to let it stand out from other murder mysteries. Consequently, it receives a good three star rating here. ( )
