From the author of the Agatha Raisin television series...DEATH OF A PRANKSTER: A Hamish Macbeth MysteryAdmittedly, there's a touch of black humor in the case. Rich, old practical joker Andrew Trent summons his kin to remote Arrat House in the dead of winter for a deathbed farewell. They arrive to find him in perfect health and eager to torment them with a whole new bag of unfunny jokes.But this time the body that falls out of the closet is Andrew Trent's own. And nobody's laughing.Especially not Constable Hamish Macbeth, who is hard put to glean any information from Trent's unappealing nearest and dearest. And when the lanky constable's former flame, Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, inserts her beautiful self into the case, Hamish must muster all his native guile to carry him through. Fortunately, he has a few clever tricks up his own sleeve, which enable this most endearing of crime fighters to get the best, and last, laugh.

I love it when the suspects are gathered in the library. Good series. Hamish Macbeth is funny.

The Death of a Prankster: A Hamish Macbeth Mystery --- by --- M. C. Beaton. I still remember the opening scene of the first Hamish Macbeth episode I ever saw: the island’s local constable breaks the headlights of a parked Mercedes with his revolver so he can give the car’s owner a ticket for failing to maintain his vehicle in a safe condition … the owner who just happened to be having it off with Hamish’s off and on again girlfriend. I was hooked. The show did not disappoint. And the, after just three seasons, the show was yanked. The TV series was based on a series of novels written by Hamish Macbeth. This is one of the. And now I’m hooked. Again.

I somehow missed reading this Hamish Macbeth, so it was a real pleasure. Kept me guessing!
