'Ian Simpson is a real find...' - ALEXANDER MCCALL SMITH
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.'
