Death of a Travelling Man by M.C. Beaton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Hamish MacBeth series is such a pleasure to read and this installment in the series was no exception. Hamish is annoyed that one of the perks with his promotion is the arrival of his constable, a housecleaning fiend who is disinfecting and polishing everything in sight. All the cleaning is disturbing Hamish's lifestyle. The second annoyance is the arrival of a "traveler" and his girlfriend who have parked their gaudy old bus in the manse backyard. Hamish is sure that he's up to no good, but he can't find any proof. With the arrival of the traveler, things in town start going wrong - money is stolen, morphine is stolen, and the minister loses his faith. And then, the traveler is murdered. Of course, Hamish manages to solve the crime in his usual unorthodox way. This is a quick, cozy read and as usual, filled with humor.
