Riassunto: MysteryLarge Print EditionThe detective novels of M. C. Beaton, a master of outrageous black comedy, have reached cult status. The TimesWhen Police Constable Hamish Macbeth is called to a murder at Arrat House, home of relentless practical joker Arthur Trent, he doesnt exactly race to the scene. Prepared for a prank, Hamish arrives to find that Trent is most decidedly dead stabbed and stuffed in a closet. And for suspects, theres a houseful of greedy relations, all more interested in the will than the crime at hand.

"A case that Hamish Macbeth fans will relish." Booklist.
A Hamish Macbeth Mystery by the author of "Death of a Snob."
When it comes to murder, Constable Hamish Macbeth can't see the joke. Rich, old practical joker Andrew Trent summons his kin to remote Arrat House in the dead of winter for a deathbed farewell. But when they arrive, the old coot is in perfect health, cackling at his joke and ready to torment them with others.
But it turns out the joke's on Trent. As the saying goes, he who laughs last, kills first! And when Trent is murdered, Constable Macbeth must step in and solve the crime before the punchline of the next killing joke knocks him right into an early grave!
