Hamish Macbeth, the local constable of the Scottish village of Lochdubh, returns in the twelfth mystery in the popular series, struggling to clear his name when he himself becomes a suspect in the murder of a local ruffian.

From the Publisher:
Everybody in Lochdubh knew that the Macho Man, a mean bully claiming to be a professional wrestler. His insults at the local pub caused some bonny brawls. His sneaking around aroused suspicion that the was romancing some Lochdubh wives. And his challenging policeman Hamish Macbeth to a public bout triggered an epidemic of bookmaking. Everyone expected Hamish to take a bloody pounding; no one expected a murder. Amid all the excitement Hamish would rather be fishing for salmon instead of clues. But the brutal Macho Man left a trail of hated and feared in his wake -- even managing to disrupt Hamish's career . . . reason enough for a stubborn Scots cop to comb the Highlands if necessary to track down a heartless killer.When Hamish Macbeth, local constable of the Scottish village of Lochdubh, tries to break up one of the many fights involving Randy Duggan, the ruffian challenges him to a fistfight. But on the chosen day, Duggan is found shot to death and Macbeth is rumored to be the likely suspect. Macbeth must find the murderer, clear his name, and restore his Highland paradise to its usual tranquility.
Annotation:
When the village strong man is murdered right before a long-awaited wrestling match, policeman Hamish Macbeth isn't as quick to accept the easy solution as do his superiors. Even if he has to go undercover to Glasgow, Hamish is determined to bring in the real killer.

Praise
