Synopsis of the book:
Drew Farthering arrives in idyllic Scotland for the 1935 British Open at Muirfield, hoping for a relaxing holiday with his wife, Madeline, and friend Nick. But death meets him once again when Lord Rainsby, their host at Thorburn Hall, is killed in a suspicious riding accident — only days after confiding in Drew his fears that his business partner was embezzling funds.
Thorburn Hall is filled with guests, and as Drew continues to dig, he realizes that each appears to have dark motives for wanting Rainsby out of the way. Together with Madeline and Nick, he must sort through shady business dealings, international intrigue, and family tensions to find a killer who always seems to be one step ahead.
Drew Farthering’s reputation as a top amateur sleuth follows him even on vacation and since Drew is the kind of man who can’t refuse helping others, he is drawn into yet another investigation. There are lots of suspects but as each one is killed or cleared, Drew is stumped.
This was my favorite book of the series. There was good mystery with lots of suspects that had me guessing until the end. I also loved spending time with my favorite sleuth and his helpers, his wife Madeline and best friend Nick.
We see further developments in Drew’s quest to find his mother as well as Nick’s quest to find love. All of the story threads are tied up by the end of this story in a wonderfully satisfying way.
What I enjoyed most about this book:
I just loved this whole story and the ending was very satisfying.
What I didn’t like about this book:
That I’m saying goodbye to Drew – what a great character.
My rating: 5 out of 5 stars
Would I recommend this book to others? You bet. Especially if you like mystery and have been following Drew’s journey through this series. This is the sixth book in the series and my favorite. It can be read as a standalone, but the tying up of story threads about Drew’s mother and Nick’s love life are more satisfying if you have read the other books.
