Recovering addict Tommy Jarret rented a chalet to check on reports of a sea monster near the dour village of Drim. When he turns up dead, apparently of a drug overdose, Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth finds the lad's demise to be particularly fishy - and not of the local salmon variety. Hamish decides to infiltrate the illicit drug trade in nearby Strathbane, but his daft scheme springs a leak.

By the title I thought the subject material would be grim - and it was a bit but then it took a comic twist that was an absolute delight.

A classic Hamish Macbeth mystery. After the sudden death of an ex drug addict, Hamish not satisfied with the findings of the Strathbane detectives, goes undercover to uncover the truth. Full of all quirky characters, this is a typical British mystery. Lots of intrigue but no blood and gore.

Did not care for this story. Reading the drug deal setup was like watching a bad movie.

This is one of the best in this super series. The plot is fresh and the characters are deeper than usual. I highly recommend this one.
