Abstract:

"Blonde, glamorous BBC reporter Crystal French has blown into Lochdubh with Highland Life, a hard-hitting TV show that has more than just the heather shaking. Roaring into town in her bright yellow Porsche, her arrival is heralded by a speeding ticket from Constable Hamish Macbeth, in spite of her attempts at bribery and seduction. Out of revenge, her show first bumps off Felicity Pearson's countryside program, then insults the shopkeepers to the outrage of the entire village, and finally targets Hamish Macbeth for public humiliation. But when Crystal turns up dead, and apparent suicide that turns out to be murder, the entire village becomes suspect."
