#7 Hamish MacBeth series in which a notorious elderly practical joker is murdered when he tells all his relatives he's dying and invites them to his country home. Most of them avoid him like the plague because his jokes just aren't funny--they're mostly mean-spirited and cruel. Apparently someone has had enough and it's up to Hamish to figure out who, since as usual DI Blair has his head up his bum. :-) Enjoyable, quick read as always; a visit with Hamish and crew can always be counted on to make me smile.

Someone gets the last laugh on Andrew Trent, an eccentric but rich old practical joker. Constable Hamish Macbeth views the body in an isolated Scottish manor house and sets out upon the unenviable task of discovering who killed the unpopular Trent. I often think I like Hamish better than Agatha Raisin, but maybe that is just because the guy who played him on BBCA is hot.

Another great Hamish MacBeth novel which I thoroughly enjoyed. I am having such fun with this series. Hamish is a lovable but unmotivated constable of a small Scottish village called Lochdubh. He has a knack for solving murders causing his superior, Blair, untold headaches and makes him (Blair) look like an idiot. Good read, quick to get through and funny.
