Death at Thorburn Hall, as the name suggests, is a murder mystery. Drew and Madeline Farthering have come to Scotland to visit Drew’s distant relations and to attend “The Open”, which is a golf tournament. But all is not as it seems, and their host, Lord Rainsby, has an ulterior motive behind inviting Drew–a detective–to his home. Lord Rainsby wants Drew to investigate his friend and colleague, MacArthur. The true mystery, though, starts when Lord Rainsby is found dead in a supposed riding accident. There is not much that can be said about the story without revealing the entire plot, so you will have to read the book yourself to get all the details; and I definitely recommend reading it, especially for the Sherlock Holmes fans.
The author has done a fantastic job of unraveling the mystery. I was completely hooked! This is the first book in Deering’s ‘Drew Farthering Mystries’ that I have read, though it is the sixth instalment in the series, and I absolutely loved it! This is the kind of book that will pull you in completely and compel you to unfold the mystery right along with the characters.
