Death of a kingfisher

Death of a kingfisher

PC Hamish Macbeth can't help but admire the resourcefulness of the Highlanders during the Recession, in tough times they have to lure tourists to their sleepy towns and the quaint village of Braikie has come up with a novel solution. It really doesn't have that much to offer apart from a place of rare beauty called Buchan's Wood, which the clued-up local tourist board director has rechristened 'The Fairy Glen' and has had brochures printed with a beautiful kingfisher rising from a lake on the cover. It isn't long before coach tours begin to arrive but just as the town's luck starts to turn, a kingfisher is found hanging from a branch in the woods with a noose around its neck. As a wave of vandalism threatens to ruin Braikie forever, it is up to Hamish to get involved and his investigation quickly turns from mistreatment of birds to murder.
