Drew Farthering arrives in idyllic Scotland for the 1935 British Open at Muirfield hoping for a relaxing vacation, but he soon finds a mystery on his hands. Lord Rainsby, his host at Thorburn Hall, fears his business partner may be embezzling and asks Drew to quietly investigate. Before Drew can uncover anything, Rainsby is killed in a suspicious riding accident.
Thorburn Hall is filled with guests, and as Drew continues to dig, he realizes that each might have had a motive. 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.
This is book 6 in the Drew Farthering Mystery series. While this may be read as a stand alone, I would greatly suggest that you read the series from the beginning to enjoy all of the character development and back stories that accompany all of the books in this series. Once again, Drew is in the middle of doing nothing when a mystery lands in his lap. It seems that no matter what he does to enjoy some down time, a mystery always seems to find him. With a setting around the British Open in the 1930’s, this is a glimpse back in history in a way that brings a unique period in time to life all the while telling a fantastic story.
Is this a "Guys Book"? Murder, mayhem and intrigue. 3 great components of a must read book. Not just for men, being set during the British Open does help that, everyone will enjoy this book. Hopefully this isn’t the end to a terrific series.
