Death of a Scriptwriter

(A Hamish Macbeth Mystery #14)

Scotland's lovable Hamish Macbeth -- the one-man village police force -- investigates the death of an actress and a television writer in the latest episode of M. C. Beaton's popular series.

In her day, Patricia Martyn-Broyd was a well-known writer of mysteries featuring the aristocratic detective Lady Harriet Vare. Now in her seventies, the author has settled in the village of Lochdubh to enjoy her retirement. Learning that one of her old novels will be produced for television, she can hardly contain her excitement. Her enthusiasm turns to rage however, when she discovers that the role of Lady Harriet has been transformed into a pot-smoking hippie. And when both the lead actress and the hack scriptwriter are found dead, it's up to Hamish Macbeth to clear the author's name...by finding a murderer with a plot all his own.
