Summary, etc.: The aromas of wild thyme and Highland heather waft through Lochdubh, home to M. C. Beaton's eccentric policeman, Hamish Macbeth. Yet what the irascible constable smells in his latest case is the acrid scent of fear as an entire town is entrapped in something dark and deadly. Leaving his comfortable home base in Lochdubh for more primitive digs up the coast, he himself becomes the victim of foul play. When an elderly woman is seemingly frightened to death by an inexplicable apparition, Hamish must uncover a secret the entire town is dying to protect. Yet as he deftly investigates the summer's high crimes and misdemeanors, he attracts the attention of his superiors. They feel a promotion and transfer will give him a larger playing field than Lochdubh. That's the last thing Macbeth wants. Now the laconic lawman needs a clever way to quash the move without losing his job entirely...
