A pleasant read, but a disappointing mystery. It relies on someone killing to keep a secret that could not plausibly have survived even this far, and one certainly doomed by its repetition to hundreds of interested buffs.

Murder at the annual Glencoe Mountain highland games, in the Appalachians. Elizabeth McPherson investigates. The highland-games setting provides quite a bit of humour, but the mystery is not that exciting, and I find MacPherson irritating. While these mysteries have some funny moments, I don't like them that much. They are okay, but they don't compel me to re-read.

This book is about a huge festival for Scottish people who wish to pay tribute to their ancestors of many different tribes. But all fun was ruined when, Colin Campbell, an important member of the festival, didnt show up.
