One thought on “Death of an Addict

  1. Jerry B

    We re not surprised at the mixed reaction to Addict , the 15th entry in the charming light mystery series featuring Constable Hamish Macbeth and his Highlands Scotland village of Lochdubh Most all these stories feature an unusual murder that Hamish eventually solves, mostly through sharp wits and everyday common sense, often to the dismay of his police superiors who thinks he s an unambitious dolt However, the familiar townsfolk and places are thrown aside in this particular tale, as Hamish pair [...]

  2. Ellie

    Death of an Addict is a different kind of contribution to M.C Beaton s Hamish Macbeth mystery series Police Officer Macbeth s sleepy Scottish village of Lochdubh officially enters the present as drugs and drug dealers enter in the form of a young man who comes post rehab to Lochdubh to write his cautionary memoirs then turns up dead of an overdose The police are satisfied that he died of an accidental od except, that is, for Hamish Macbeth, who has a feeling something s not quite right.This is t [...]

    Definitely not my favorite Hamish MacBeth novel This book kinda turned him into both a sexist jerk and a pathetic desperate single guy I thought Olivia was a nightmare and Hamish is starting to have a revolving door of women in these novels I also don t think THAT many people would find Hamish weird for not wanting a promotion That s actually a fairly normal response when people don t want to uproot themselves for a job Pretty disappointing, but a quick read.

  4. Rachel

    I find Hamish Macbeth stories to be totally soothing The characters are so fantastic and the murder mysteries always intriguing This was another great story.

  6. The Flooze

    I understand from reviews that many readers are disappointed to find Hamish away from Lochdubh for most of this book For me, it was rather exciting to see Hamish completely out of his element Though we know he can charm and fib his way out of most anything on his own turf, this time we get to see Hamish rise to the challenge of a much complicated investigation one that costs a lot of money and manpower He comes out of it with mixed results, the negative ones reinforcing that at heart he s alway [...]

  7. Lynn

    I reach for a Hamish Macbeth book when I want to read something light and entertaining This is the 15th book in the series and I have read all of the previous books This book was just ok for me and perhaps one of the my least favorite books so far in the series The idea of Hamish as an undercover International Drug king pin was a stretch for me I suppose after 14 books the author looks for a new plot for her series that is different than the previous ones.The character of Detective Chief Inspect [...]

  8. C.J. Prince

    Ah, if you re ready for Death of an Addict , you ve already galloped through fourteen Hamish Macbeth books And if you don t know who he is, then go back to 1 Death of A Gossip Perhaps you ll fall in love with the lanky Scotsman with blazing hair just as I did.If you re in the reading doldrums, this series will sail you off to the horizon of the Highlands and make you smile By 15, you already know many of the characters and it s like you ve settled in a croft in Lochdubh pronounced Loch do.The de [...]

  9. Helene Harrison

    Review I loved Hamish in this one because it showed a completely different side to him I really hated Blair in this one, as we got to see just how much he hated Hamish I also, surprisingly, really liked Olivia and in particular her relationship with Hamish The mystery started out slowly and unconnected, but by the end, I really loved the story, and I never would have guessed who dunnit this time The description was also brilliant and easy to visualise.Genre Crime MysteryCharacters Hamish Macbeth [...]

    DEATH OF AN ADDICT Police Procedural cozy OkM.C Beaton 15th in seriesDrugs come to the Scottish Highlands when a young man is found dead from an apparent overdose But his parents believe it as murder and ask Constable Hamish Macbeth to investigate Although Hamish is brighter than he appears, the idea of him posing as a drug kingpin just doesn t work And the dialogue is weak in the extreme It is extremely rare when a television series is better than the books but the BBC series of Hamish Macbeth [...]

  11. Dolly

    This is an unusual book in the Hamish Macbeth series Hamish gets caught up in a drug sting operations, going undercover as a married drug lord, wearing fancy clothes, traveling to Amsterdam, and basically getting out of his comfort zone It wasn t my favorite of the series, but it was a fast, fun read.

  12. Heather

    This one really felt like Beaton was just tired to writing Macbeth books, but needed one to fulfill some contractual obligation So she had this idea for another book and pigeon holed it into a Macbeth story Yeah My least favorite so far.

  13. Patricia

    sighWould I marry Hamish Macbeth if he asked me I don t know, but I surely would be mightily tempted This was an enjoyable episode in the series listened on audio book

  14. Karen

    Skip this one The murder investigation was good, but Macbeth makes ridiculous romantic choices that ruin the whole story.

  15. Selah Pike

    I enjoyed the case it was nice for Hamish to get out of Lochdubh for a bit The ending was kind of sad.

  16. Donna Radcliff

    Not my favorite, too much Miami Vice in the Highlands Drug Lords, seamy big town crime Not my cuppa.

  17. Jenny Houle

    Completely and totally bummed out.This was, by far, my favorite story line so far in the series, but I had to give it only 3 stars because MCBeaton has once again screwed up the backstory of a highly relevant character, and it makes me insane when it happens A character who was given an extensive backstory in book 14 DEATH OF A SCRIPTWRITER was suddenly given a very different backstory in this oned it s hard because he plays a rather major role in both books It s just an irritation that gets und [...]

  18. Peter Barr

    This is the 15th Hamish Macbeth mystery by M.C.Beaton Macbeth is a police constable in a Scottish Highland village He normally desires nothing farther than being a village policeman and taking care of the small croft there In this novel he becomes involved in the investigation into narcotics trafficking that takes him far and wide Well, farther and wider than his usual investigation This is one of the better Macbeth stories and I like them all so far.

  19. Sue

    Hamish gets involved in a major drug dealing investigation with wide ranging implications that take him to Amsterdam During the course of the investigation he makes friends with a lady Chief Inspector, impersonates a homeless person and a major drug dealer, and faces a serious threatte to gentle reader language

  20. Marlene

    I ve read this one before and remembered why it was not my favorite It s all about illicit drug trade Hamish gets himself involved in undercover work that does not go well Plus one of his co workers is out for blood That goes against all my ideals of right and truth.

  21. Marie

    This book was somewhat different than most of the previous Hamish Macbeth mysteries but I still enjoyed it I love the way Hamish relates to all the people in his life this book fleshed out Hamish s character a little bit .

  22. Stuart

    I m finding the writing tediously dated but I am interested in what happens with his nemesis Blair, so despite being increasingly underwhelmed and unimpressed, I m going to keep going with the series for now

  23. Stacielynn

    This one was a real dandy Loved getting a woman DCI in the act And finding out what a dirtbag Blair really is, deep down inside Daviet is even clueless than usual And that Angela is pure gold.

  24. Donna

    This was a great departure from the usual plot line with two police storylines and the same loveable Hamish The highlight was Angela Brodie s response and the villagers quick wit to save their own copper.

  25. Jan

    You know what you are in for with a Hamish Macbeth but there is nothing wrong with that.Nice light read with a few giggles along the way.
