The unconventional Hamish Macbeth finds that his own impetuousness
places him at the center of a murder investigation. Everyone in the
Scottish Highlands village of Lochdubh called Randy Duggan 'the
Macho Man'. Duggan went around the village and bragged about
everything he had done and said he once was a wrestler in America
and an explorer in the Middle East. At first his outrageous stories
drew an admiring crowd at the local pub, but soon his bullying ways
lead to anger and violence. When Hamish tries to break up a fight,
Duggan challenges him to a public fistfight. But on the day of the
scheduled fight, Duggan is found shot to death. Of course,
Macbeth's superiors get wind of the fight and suspend him during
the investigation. Macbeth has some suspicions about Duggan's real
background - and the mysterious banker, John Glover, who shows up
at the posh Tommel Castle Hotel shortly before Duggan's death. And
what about Rosie Draley, the sex-crazed romance writer, who had
been having an affair with the two-timing Duggan? Once again,
Macbeth is in hot water and he must find a murderer to clear his
name - and to get back his job and the cushy life (fishing and
mooching around the village) he leads.
