Death of a Liar Synopsis

Sergeant Hamish Macbeth is alarmed to receive a report from a woman in the small village of Cronish in the Scottish Highlands. She has been brutally attacked and the criminal is on the loose. But upon further investigation, Hamish discovers that she was lying about the crime. So when the same woman calls him back about an intruder, he simply marvels at her compulsion to lie. This time, though, she is telling the truth. Her body is found in her home and Hamish must sort through all of her lies to solve the crime. Praise for Death of a Valentine: 'A fun new read.' Woman's World 'An inventive, constantly surprising plot...explosive and engaging.' Booklist Praise for Death of a Witch: 'Full of the author's trademark zest and wit...Beaton fans will be delighted.' Publishers Weekly 'A sound mystery featuring a generous portion of Hamish's complicated relationships and the usual delightful Highland descriptions.' Kirkus

Already a household name and, according to Anne Robinson, a ‘national treasure’, she is ranked among John Grisham and Maeve Binchy as a heavyweight of the publishing world.
