M.C. Beaton, DEATH OF A POLICEMAN

This is the latest installment in the Hamish MacBeth series, which follows the exploits of a Scottish highlands policeman.  I should admit up front that I am a fan of Beaton, enjoying both her stories about MacBeth and her Agatha Raisin series.  Her books are relatively short and mostly plot driven, although she has a knack for describing a character in a sentence or two.  Those who love literary mysteries will probably find this rather thin fare, but they do carry the reader along through multiple twists and turns to a generally satisfying conclusion.  These books will not reach your soul, but they will provide enjoyable entertainment.
