A troup of flashy, bed-tempered filmakers arrive in Lockdubh and bring trouble and murder with them. Hamish suspects from the beginning that the first murder was not accidental and finds himself dealing with an aging mstery writer furious about the changes from her book to the risque tv pilot. I've read all of B.C. Beaton's books on Hamish Macbeth and find them very entertaining and addictive. Clean, easy to read cozy mysteries. High recommned to those who love "cozies."

Hamish feels a bit sorry for the lonely spinster and invites her to dinner. The 70 year old lady is vain and class conscious so has not made any friends. To her delight, her last book is going to be made into a TV show. She does not know that the scriptwriter completely changes the characters, time of the book, etc. The scriptwriter is hard to deal with and many people on the show and off, including the author have shouted they will kill him. He ends up dead along with the leading lady. In this case, there are too many suspects and Hamish has a time of it narrowing it down.
