In the isolated villages in the north of Scotland, the villagers rely on the services of the chimney sweep, Pete Ray, and his old-fashioned brushes. Pete is always able to find work in the Scottish highlands, until the day that Police Constable Hamish Macbeth notices blood dripping onto the floor of a villager's fireplace, and a dead body stuffed inside the chimney. The entire town of Lochdubh is certain Pete is the culprit, but Hamish doesn't believe that the affable chimney sweep is capable of committing murder. Then Pete's body is found on the Scottish moors, and the mystery deepens. It's up to Hamish to discover who's responsible for the dirty deed--and this time, the murderer may be closer than he realizes.

(Book 26 in the Hamish Macbeth series)

A mystery story set in a small town in modern day Scotland. The audio reader does an excellent job. The story is sort of organized like the TV mystery Columbo, where you pretty much know who did it early on, and the actual mystery as far as the reader is concerned is how the detective will finally figure it out himself. Some aspects of the plot are a little over the top, and especially the critical event that allows the detective to solve the case is pretty hard to believe that would ever happen. But if you are able to suspend disbelief a little, worth a listen.
