The Murder of Young Tom Morris: An Inspector McArdle St Andrews Golf Mystery
Ships in 3-5 business days
It is 1875. Old Tom Morris and his son, Young Tom Morris, dominate golf. St Andrews is the best course and the Royal and Ancient is the top club.
A Morris may win the Open Championship – again!
But, one by one, members of the Morris family die.
Enter Captain David McArdle, recently of the Black Watch. Champion or villain? War hero or phoney? Friend of Tom Morris – or his nemesis?
And what of the local doctor back just from India?
The Superintendent of the lunatic asylum?
The irascible Edinburgh professor with an interest in potatoes? Other professional golfers with reputations at stake?
The recently-discovered memoirs of Fife’s Chief Constable, James Fleming Bremner, shed new light on the deaths. Or were they murders?
“Whether your interest is golf, St Andrews, social and military history or just a well-crafted mystery, the first volume in the McArdle series is a cracking good yarn!”
