Time to retire Hamish. Very disappointed with this book.

M.C. Beaton must be "of an age" now, and it shows in the writing. Earlier Hamish stories were far superior.

Death of a Kingfisher is a very disappointing book and not one of Beaton's lighthearted "cozies." I usually have a smile in my soul when I finish a Beaton book. Not this one.

This one gets into sinister descriptions of the killings and the plot is almost silly with all the contortions. As well the antagonists are very flat and not Beaton's usual character development.

After reading this entry in the Hamish Macbeth mystery series, I am not sure that I will read any more. A very convoluted plot including one totally unrealistic method of murder made for a sub-par read at best. Most of the characters are one-dimensional and unlikeable. If you want to try one of these books, do yourself a favour and start from the beginning of the series.

I was clipping right along with this entry, marveling at the complexity of the plot. I couldn’t wait to see who the bad guy was. Sigh. Is it me, or did the villain seem to come out of left field with very little preparatory work beforehand?
