Finito il fidanzamento con Priscilla, a Lochdubh c’è ostilità nei confronti di Hamish, considerato la causa di tutto. Aspettando che le acque si calmino, il poliziotto decide di prendersi qualche giorno di ferie nella località marittima di Skag. Sceglie una pensioncina senza pretese, per poi scoprire di poter pretendere davvero poco: il cibo è pessimo e tra gli ospiti spicca la fastidiosa presenza di Bob Harris, che sembra avere l’hobby di punzecchiare la moglie e gli altri pensionanti su qualsiasi cosa.
Tutti vorrebbero sbarazzarsi di lui per godersi un po’ di relax. Quando Bob viene trovato morto assassinato, Hamish, che poco prima del fattaccio è stato protagonista di un violento alterco con lui, finisce in prima fila nella lista dei sospettati.

While I'm a longtime Beaton fan, this book feels like it was written by a ghostwriter. The caper took place out of town, making the usual familiar characters appearance slim.
