DEATH OF AN ADDICT (Police Procedural – cozy) – Ok M.C. Beaton – 15th in series
Drugs 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 is. This is a very light series anyway, but this story was one of the weakest.
