'Ian Simpson is a real find...' - ALEXANDER MCCALL SMITH
Is one of the world's top golfers a child-killer? Or is it a camp follower, or a local? Sheriff Hector Drummond's gardener's son is
murdered so for him it is personal.
It is 1927 and Bobby Jones arrives in St Andrews. He is favourite to retain his Open crown but can he win the hearts of the people of St Andrews? More murders follow but Hector believes the police have arrested the wrong men.
Meanwhile his step-son has a crisis of identity…..
This well-researched book takes the reader back to St Andrews in 1927. As the Open reaches its climax, Hector’s unconventional investigations come to a tense and violent conclusion.
'Thoroughly enjoyable ... thoroughly researched ... St Andrews sits proudly centre stage' - Journal of the Law Society of Scotland
'Simpson deftly weaves an imaginative and complex plot into the events and schedule of the 1927 Open and writes in an accessibly modern style ... it becomes a page-turner ... definitely a novel to be savoured.' - University of Edinburgh Journal
