When John Heppel, a visiting writer to Lochdubh, first proposes forming a writers' circle, the idea is met with much enthusiasm from local residents. However, once the classes get underway, attendance quickly falters due to one undeniable fact: John Heppel is a long-winded, consummate bore. But is dullness a motive for murder? Hamish Macbeth wouldn't ordinarily think so, therefore when Heppel is found dead, Hamish begins looking for deeper meaning in the writer's stories, including a strange, unfinished soap opera script that seems to suggest a more sinister motive behind its author's unhappy ending.

Having listened to two of M.C. Beaton's more recent Hamish Macbeth books, I wanted some of the backstory. This book contains the details of how Hamish acquired the wildcat. It was not as compelling as the later books, and if you only want to know the story of the cat, it's on the last disc.

I love listening to the books in this series. Graeme Malcolm's Scottish accent adds an extra level of entertainment to an already-fun series.
