Ian Simpson – Murder on the Second Tee

Hugh Parsley has found murdered on a golf course in a Scottish hotel. His colleagues, managers of a small but prestigious bank, stay there to sort out some problems. Detective Flick Fortune’s first case turns out to be much more complicated than assumed at first glance since the group of bankers is also observed by an undercover agent, Baggo, who is investigating money laundering at the same time. A third player in the game will make life even more complicated for the two.
Unfortunately, the crime novel could not really convince me. The constant shift between the murder investigation and the laundering scandal, personal animosities or the like was more confusing than creating suspense. Additionally, the characters did not really appear authentic and lively, especially Flick Fortune could not convince me as a real police detective.
