9781849010887: Death of a Maid

Mrs. Gillespie is famous for being the best maid in the northwest of Sutherland. But to Hamish Macbeth, she is a malicious gossip who bangs around the furniture and clanks pots. When Hamish wins Mrs. Gillespie's services in a church raffle, he spends most of the day trying to avoid her. He doesn't understand how she managed to gain such a fine reputation. Then she is found dead, struck down violently by a metal bucket of water. Knowing Mrs. Gillespie's penchant for gossip, Hamish is sure she delighted in finding out her clients' secrets -- which means that everyone whose home she cleaned is a suspect.

About the Author:

M.C Beaton is the author of both the Agatha Raisin and Hamish Macbeth series, as well as numerous Regency romances. Her Agatha Raisin books are currently being turned into a TV series on Sky. She lives in Paris and in a Cotswolds village that is very much like Agatha's beloved Carsely.

From AudioFile:

Mrs. Gillespie, cleaning lady, gossip, and blackmailer, is found by Constable Hamish Macbeth conked dead by her own pail of water. There are many who might have killed her. Graeme Malcolm 's Scottish burrs are his finest accent, and he relishes Hamish and his doings with obvious delight. The story is filled with juicy eccentrics whom Malcolm has a field day bringing to life--from the rude "lady of the manor" to the cheerful widower, Mr. Gillespie, who just wants to watch videos. Part of a series, this mystery continues, with abundant subplots, to enlighten the listener about Hamish's confused love life, his dog and cat, and his never-ending battle to remain a simple copper.
