"A case that Hamish Macbeth fans will relish." Booklist. A Hamish Macbeth Mystery by the author of "Death of a Snob." When it comes to murder, Constable Hamish Macbeth can't see the joke. Rich, old practical joker Andrew Trent summons his kin to remote Arrat House in the dead of winter for a deathbed farewell. But when they arrive, the old coot is in perfect health, cackling at his joke and ready to torment them with others. But it turns out the joke's on Trent. As the saying goes, he who laughs last, kills first! And when Trent is murdered, Constable Macbeth must step in and solve the crime before the punchline of the next killing joke knocks him right into an early grave!

I love it when the suspects are gathered in the library. Good series. Hamish Macbeth is funny.

The Death of a Prankster: A Hamish Macbeth Mystery --- by --- M. C. Beaton. I still remember the opening scene of the first Hamish Macbeth episode I ever saw: the island’s local constable breaks the headlights of a parked Mercedes with his revolver so he can give the car’s owner a ticket for failing to maintain his vehicle in a safe condition … the owner who just happened to be having it off with Hamish’s off and on again girlfriend. I was hooked. The show did not disappoint. And the, after just three seasons, the show was yanked. The TV series was based on a series of novels written by Hamish Macbeth. This is one of the. And now I’m hooked. Again.

I somehow missed reading this Hamish Macbeth, so it was a real pleasure. Kept me guessing!
