New York : Dial Books, 2008
Wilkes is an amateur sleuth, and when he discovers Duncan MacRae, the founder
of the Scottish Highland Games, dead in his tent, he begins to investigate.
At first, evidence points to Duncan’s son, Malcolm, as the murderer, but
Horatio soon discovers that his friend Mac and Mac’s girlfriend Beth may
be the true culprits. What drove them to this madness? And can Horatio
prove they’re to blame before he or anyone else is hurt? If you’ve read
Macbeth, you may already know the answers to these questions, but you may
still be surprised at how things play out in this modern retelling. For
those of you who haven’t read Macbeth, Something Wicked may be just the
hook you need to really get into Shakespeare’s Scottish play.
