As usual, Hamish is charged with sleuthing without his arch-enemy Blair finding out about his efforts. This time, the murder of a maid indicates she had it coming! She made a career out of blackmailing her customers...not necessarily for money but "treats". She was not liked and didn't do a very good job either but she held sordid secrets and no one dared to fire her. Elspeth comes to Lochduh for a vacation and ends up helping Hamish a bit but not without lots of misunderstandings and hurt feelings along the way. I thoroughly enjoy Hamish MacBeth and his love and care of his pets.
