  • "aWhen society widow and gossip columnist Lady Jane Winters joined the fishing class, she wasted no time in ruffling the feathers-or was it the fins?-of those around her. Among the victims of her sharp tongue and unladylike manner was Lochdubh Constable Hamish Macbeth. Yet not even Hamish thought someone would permanently silence Lady Jane's shrills-until her strangled body is fished out of the river. Now with the help of the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, Hamish must angle through the choppy waters of the tattler's life to find the murderer. But with a school of suspects who aren't ready to talk and dead women telling no tales, Hamish may be in over his head, for he knows that secrets are dangerous, knowledge is power, and killers usually do strike again."

  • "Another mystery beckons Hamish MacBeth, constable of Lochdubh in the breathtaking beautiful Scottish Highlands. Attending the Lochdubh School of Casting is not proving as enjoyable a holiday as the participants had envisioned. For a start, no one anticipated the presence of Lady Jane Hamilton, whose knack for digging up nasty secrets gives everyone cause to hate her before the week is out. However, as Hamish soon discovers, trying to work out whom she antagonized enough to kill her is trickier than catching a Lochdubh salmon."
  • "When a famous gossip columnist is murdered at the local fishing school, no one is ready to talk. It's up to Hamish Macbeth, with the inspiring assistance of the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, to sniff out the right rat amid all the cunning anglers with secrets to hide. But someone has baited a hook for him."
