Overview

Jessica Fletcher and a group of friends from Cabot Cove take off for the British Isles and end up at a castle in Scotland in this Murder, She Wrote mystery...

Scotland's most celebrated witch, executed long ago with a pitchfork through her heart, is said to haunt Inspector George Sutherland's family castle in the village of Wick. It's an intriguing tale and after a British book tour, Jessica accepts Sutherland's invitation to bring her Cabot Cove friends to the heather-covered Highlands. Indeed, after "roamin' in the gloamin'" with the handsome inspector, she spots a spectral woman in white in the gloomy castle. But Jessica's blood runs cold when she later finds a local lass executed in the same way as the legendary witch.

Something is very vile in Wick. It's a case of evil, greed, and murder that pits Jessica Fletcher against a killer from this world—or maybe the next.

Jessica goes to Scotland for a vacation, which suits her just fine except for the ghost...and murder. Is the killer human or from another world? Once I began reading this book, I couldn't put it down! The next mystery to solve: What comes next?

Read just like the series for Muder She Wrote. It was a fascinating plot all the way. It kept me hanging on trying to guess who did it. I guessed wrong of course. It gave me the feeling that I was actually there. Very real descriptions of events. A must read for any mystery fan.

Ive read about 20 from this series and this is the only one i havent enjoyed. Way too farfetched, even by murder she wrote standards. Save your money.

Being the eight book in the Murder, She Wrote series, starting with Gin & Daggers, The Highland Fling murders is one of the better entries in this series. Jessica and a group of her Cabot Cove friends are off to the Scottish Highlands, as guests of George Sutherland, the Scotland Yard Inspector that Jessica met in the first book, Gin & Daggers. They have had a budding romance throughout the series and if it wasn't for the murder mystery that developes, who knows where their relationship may have ended up. George is a great character and it's always nice when he returns to the series. As usual, Donald Bain writes with excellent descriptions of the countryside. All the Murder, She Wrote books have great details, no matter what setting he places them in. This book is also constructed closer to the way a typical Murder, She Wrote televsion episode would be crafted. A Scottish Castle, supposedly haunted. Sightings of ghosts and Jessica trapping the killer at the end, using a bit of bait. All of these elements made this one of the books I couldn't complain about. However, the solution to the mystery is typical Bain. In my opinion, so far, reading this series in order, "A Deadly Judgement" had about the best satisfying solution, complete with a few clues that the reader could pick up on if they paid attention. Unfortunately, most of the books in this series start off well, are an easy read, and then fall apart during the solution and that's always dissapointing in a mystery story. Donald Bain relies on the same gimmick too many times and his "conspiracies" in some of these books get a bit old. But all in all, this one is a charmer and whether or not you enjoy the solution, it does make sense and you'll have a good time along the way.
