Reviewed by Dawn Crawford

The locals of Stoyre, a small fishing village on Constable Hamish Macbeth's beat seem possessed. They have turned religious and those who haven't accepted the faith have mysteriously disappeared. When Hamish investigates, they try to kill him.

Something is also fishy at the local nursing home. A number of the residents, who have changed their wills to include a dowry for the home, seem to be dying prematurely. Is it a coincidence or is something more sinister going on?

This book of M.C. Beaton's is packed with adventure, as numerous crimes seem to be occurring simultaneously.
