But this time the body that falls out of the closet isAndrew Trent's own. And nobody's laughing.
Especially not Constable Hamish Macbeth, who is hard put toglean any information from Trent's unappealing nearest and dearest. And whenthe lanky constable's former flame Priscilla Halburton-Smythe inserts herbeautiful self into the case, Hamish must muster all his native guile to carryhim through. Fortunately, he has a few clever tricks up his own sleeve whichenable this most endearing of crime fighters to get the best-and last-laugh.
