Annotation "All Sergeant Hamish Macbeth ever wants is a quiet life in the tranquil surroundings of Lochdubh, his home village in the Scottish Highlands. Although the area he polices is vast, he's happiest when he's working alone, yet the police authorities insist he have an assistant. In the past, they have supplied a variety of problematic misfits, but they surpass themselves with their latest effort -- an American named James Bland. Having met Bland previously, Hamish knows that the American has led a life colored by secrets and skullduggery. So he isn't surprised when he discovers the real motive behind Bland's arrival: to recruit his help in tracking down a spy ring, some of whose members have met grisly ends. The investigation tears Hamish away from Lochdubh at a time when the village is suffering a disturbing spate of increasingly violent burglaries. The identity of the burglar, however, is a perplexing mystery. All of that blows Hamish's quiet life out the window and puts a serious strain on his relationship with Claire, a pretty new paramedic. Can Hamish cope with the murky world of espionage, seek out the spies before anyone else is murdered, capture the Lochdubh burglar before his nocturnal rampage runs out of control, and rescue his sadly neglected love life? Only time will tell . . . "
