The Lammas Curse

351 pages5 hours


Book 2 in a series of chronological stand-alone plots.

Scotland 1899. Dr Watson and Countess Varvara Volodymyrovna visit the Scottish Borders to solve the Lammermoor Golf Course murders. Lord Cruddock is staging a tournament to promote his new golf course but someone is killing-off the golfers.

There are plenty of suspects among the golfing-tragics, weird locals and exotic guests staying at Cruddock Castle, however, it is the dowager Lady Cruddock, a Spiritualist who is opposed to the golf course being built on sacred land, who puts a supernatural spin on criminal matters with her uncanny séances.

The plot thickens when the Irish actress, Lola O’Hara, decides to save the tournament from imminent disaster by staging the nameless Scottish play by Shakespeare on the same night that the priceless Lammas tiara goes missing.

Our two sleuths must determine if the dark deeds are driven by ambition, greed, jealousy, revenge or witchcraft. And they must do it by the fifth of November.
