#5 in the Hamish MacBeth series. A wealthy woman is killed when her car catches fire. Technically she died of a heart attack, but everyone in her household knew of her weak heart, so who was it who planted the incendiary device? Her mousy niece? One of the four gentleman suitors whom she'd invited so she could choose a husband? Or someone else? Hamish is on the case! Once again, his superiors want to write this off as an accident, but when Hamish finds proof that the car was made to catch fire and then another dead body turns up, it's pretty obvious that's not the case. As always, an enjoyable quick read.
