amazon-logo facebook twitter IANSIMPSON

St Andrews, May 1930: Bobby Jones is in town

for  the British Amateur Championship, the

first of that year’s Majors.


Sheriff Hector Drummond has entered the

championship but when he finds a body on the course he becomes personally involved in a murder hunt.


As Jones struggles to keep his Grand Slam hopes alive, Hector encounters a second body, a hostile police inspector, a corrupt politician and an American megalomaniac.


Carefully researched and full of well-drawn characters, this book weaves a baffling murder mystery into a true account of an important championship.




***** Amazon Review


'A well rounded story full of interest ...leaves the reader guessing right to the end... A great book worthy of anyone's interest ... a wonderful tribute to Bobby Jones, amateur golfer and gentleman.'


Journal of the Law Society of Scotland.


'A book to be savoured and, with a nod to the misty eye,

with a dram, much in the manner of Sheriff Drummond.'
