Murder at the Open
Today’s Free Kindle eBook: Murder at the Open
Sometimes you really need a break… Angus MacVicar and Aidan Campbell are both keen golfers, taking a much-needed break at the legendary St. Andrews during the Open Championship. But their hopes of enjoy a relaxing week of playing and watching golf are disrupted when they find the body of American millionaire Conrad J. Livingston, buried in a bunker.Perhaps most people would have alerted the police of such a discovery and left them to it, but Aidan Campbell is a University professor with a more than inquisitive attitude.Angus is fully aware of his friend’s investigative manner, and quickly realises that their relaxing week of playing golf would turn into everything but.In charge of the case is Inspector Samuel McLintock, who has no problem with the extra help from Angus and Aidan, especially given the latter’s skills in ‘deductive logic’. The murder victim had a party of five with him and the inspector’s conclusions that it is a ‘closed-circuit crime’ means it must be one of the five travelling Americans that are responsible. Amongst them are Livingston’s niece Debbie, who seems to be harbouring a precious secret, but won’t tell anyone what. All of the suspects seem to have alibis that hold up, but something doesn’t quite sit right. Could there have been someone else involved? As the week drags on, more and more facts of the case come to light, but Angus starts to become paranoid about the danger to his own life, whilst Debbie’s state of mind is also becoming increasingly unstable.But will the Inspector and Aidan be able to get to the bottom of the increasingly mysterious case? Murder at the Open is a gripping tale of mystery and suspicion.Praise for Angus MacVicar “Angus MacVicar runs John Buchan close as the supreme spinner of an enthralling yarn” — Daily Express “The writer par excellence of Scottish thrillers” — Western Independent “The finest exponent of the thick-ear thriller since the palmy days of ‘Sapper’ and John Buchan.” — Eric Gillett, in Time and Tide Angus MacVicar was a Scottish writer specialising in crime thrillers, young adult and autobiography.
