Book Review - Death at Thorburn Hall


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.

I have read every one of the Drew Farthering books and I have loved them all and this book is no exception! I just look so forward to these stories and this one was just as good as the others.

Drew and Madeline are visiting his distant cousin, Lord and Lady Rainsby, and attending the British Open. It's an exciting and fun time for them because Nick and Carrie are also along for the visit. What they hope is going to be a relaxing time turns into another murder that Drew gets pulled into solving.

This time we have a new Inspector because they are away from home and he is even more against civilians getting involved in police matters than Inspector Birdsong. They find themselves up against a murderer of great cunning as well as having to dodge the Inspector.

What I loved about this book that I love about the others in this series is I'm never really sure of the murderer until the very end. There are so many complex characters that are possible suspects, you're not sure who the real culprit is.

If you like a good mystery, you'll love this book! I love this book and I give it 5 out of 5 stars.
