"When Police Sergeant Hamish Macbeth hears reports of a haunted castle near Drim, he assumes the eerie noises and lights reported by the villagers are just local teenagers going there to smoke pot or, worse, inject themselves with drugs. Still, Hamish decides that he and his policeman, Charlie "Clumsy" Carson, will spend the night at the ruined castle to get to the bottom of the rumors once and for all. There's no sign of any ghost...but then Charlie disappears through the floor. It turns out he's fallen into the cellar. And what Hamish and Charlie find there is worse than a ghost: a dead body propped against the wall. Waiting for help to arrive, Hamish and Charlie leave the castle just for a moment--to eat bacon baps--but when they return, the body is nowhere to be seen. It's clear something strange--and deadly--is going on at the castle, and Hamish must get to the bottom of it before the "ghost" can strike again" -- Provided by publisher.

Loved the ghost intrigue in this one - a departure from her usual style. Poor Hamish - will his love life ever improve?

I can never decide which of MC Beaton's two main characters I like best, Agatha Raisin or Hamish Macbeth.Death of a Ghost has Hamish on his toes in highly contorted situations and there's a lot of wry humour along the way. What's not to like?

I was a bit disappointed in this book. Not really too much about a ghost as the title implies.
The book meanders along and by the end of the book I kind of lost the story along the way. Enjoyable but not one of M. C. Beatons best

A former high-ranking policeman moves to dreary Drim and engages Hamish MacBeth to get to the bottom of the ghostly sounds emanating from a ruined castle. There are criminal activities and plot twists aplenty - and personal intrigue, too.
