Mystery Private Eye
Patricia Martyn-Broyd, now in her seventies, has retired
to the Highlands. She hasnâ€™t written a word in years and
her books are out of print. But now a television company
is about to film her last detective story, featuring the
aristocratic Scottish detective Lady Harriet Vare. Even
better, a London publisher is bringing the book into
print. Even though the snobbish Miss Martyn-Broyd doesnâ€™t
care to mix with the locals she canâ€™t help but share her
excitement with local policeman Hamish Macbeth.
Imagine her horror when Miss Martyn-Broyd discovers that
Lady Harriet Vare is portrayed as a pot-smoking hippy,
that the screenwriter is known for his violent and
scurrilous scripts and that Lady Harriet is going to be
played by the scene-stealing trollop Penelope Gates. But a
contract is a contract, Ms Martyn-Broyd quickly learns and
when she is accused of murdering the scriptwriter and the
leading lady, she turns to her one friend in Lochdubh,
Hamish Macbeth, to help her.
