The quaint village of Braikie doesnt have much to offer, other than a place of rare beauty called Buchans Wood, which was bequeathed to the town. A savvy local tourist director renames the woods The Fairy Glen, and has brochures printed with a beautiful photograph of a kingfisher rising from a pond on the cover. It isnt long before coach tours begin to arrive. But just as the towns luck starts to turn, a kingfisher is found hanging from a branch in the woods with a noose around its neck. As a wave of vandalism threatens to ruin Braikie forever, the town turns to Hamish Macbeth. And when violence strikes again, the lawmans investigation quickly turns from animal cruelty to murder.
