When society widow and gossip columnist Lady Jane Winters joins the local fishing class she wastes no time in ruffling feathers _ or should that be fins? _ of those around her.Among the victims of her sharp tongue is Lochdubh constable Hamish Macbeth, yet not even Hamish thinks someone would seriously want to silence Lady Jane_s shrill voice permanently _ until her strangled body is fished out of the river.Now with the help of the lovely Priscilla Halburton-Smythe, Hamish must steer a course through the choppy waters of the tattler_s life to find a murderer. But with a school of suspects who aren_t willing to talk, and the dead woman telling no tales, Hamish may well be in over his head for he knows that secrets are dangerous, knowledge is power, and killers when cornered usually do strike again.
