Death of a Sweep Summary

Death of a Sweep by M.C. Beaton

No wonder she's been crowned Queen of Cosy Crime' Mail on Sunday

The 26th outing for the Highland's most famous PC: Hamish Macbeth

In the south of Scotland, residents get their chimneys vacuum-cleaned. But in the isolated villages in the very north of Scotland, the villagers rely on the services of the itinerant sweep, Pete Ray, and his old-fashioned brushes. Pete is always able to find work in the Scottish highlands, until one day when Police Constable Hamish Macbeth notices blood dripping onto the floor of a villager's fireplace, and a dead body stuffed inside the chimney.

The entire town of Lochdubh is certain Pete is the culprit, but Hamish doesn't believe that the affable chimney sweep is capable of committing murder. Then Pete's body is found on the Scottish moors, and the mystery deepens. Once again, it's up to Hamish to discover who's responsible for the dirty deed - and this time, the murderer may be closer than he realizes.

Praise for the Hamish Macbeth series:

'[A] beguiling blend of wry humour and sharp observations about rural life' Good Book Guide

'It's always a special treat to return to Lochdubh' New York Times Book Review

'The detective novels of M C Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status' - Anne Robinson, The Times
