More About the Author

After a career in the courts I decided that I had enough of facts and I started to write fiction. I greatly enjoy my second career. From my days as defence counsel I remember police officers who bent the rules out of shape and got away with it. They were often highly effective at putting villains behind bars and I had mixed feelings about them. I based Inspector No on these men, only I have made No a buffoon, a source of comedy. I believe that crime fiction is at its best when flavoured with humour, and my readers appear to agree with me. My second book is based in St Andrews, where I was brought up, and it provides a wonderful backdrop for any story. My third, Murder in Court Three, out at the end of March, is set in Edinburgh's legal world. I have been fortunate that most of those who have read my books have enjoyed them and I feel honoured when someone chooses to relax with my fiction.

Review

'Ian Simpson is a real find' --Alexander McCall Smith

'Definitely a series to watch out for from a new talent on the crime writing scene.' --Crime Fiction Lover

An engrossing mystery' --The Herald

Entertaining, informative and smile crackingly funny. Second book; sometimes difficult to repeat a successful debut. Have no worries in this case, this is another clever and comedic story.
Set in St Andrews the detectives from the first book have moved on; this brings a fresh perspective to their characters and enables a complicated duel investigation to proceed without problem for the plot or reader to assimilate.
A bank is reeling from the financial crash; dodgy dealings mean their is an internal conspiracy to maintain secrecy but perhaps murder is a step too far. When a body turns up on the famous links we have a female detective short on confidence; pregnant and desperate to make an impression. Her character is very cleverly written as are her new supporting cast. Inspector No is also back for a cameo; now in retirement he is brought back by the back to stop the criminal investigation into the murder getting too close to the corruption taking place.
However, Detective Sergeant Bagawath Chandavarkar (Baggo)is undercover as a waiter investigating the bank fraud. He is another well drawn and likeable character. His independent thinking and insights provides a real assest to the murder enquiry running parallel to his own investigation. He also greatly enriches the reading experience.
You don't need to love golf or hate bankers to enjoy this book. It is a modern police procedural with a clever plot, harking back to more convential murder mysteries. It is light and full of humour but not at the expense of some serious issues it raises, including the impact on murder itself.
While some books refresh and purge you through unspeackable crimes and real menace, Ian Simpsons novels will inform and delight and leave a smile on your face.

This is a quirky Scottish murder mystery set in and around St Andrews and its famous golf course. A banker is found bludgeoned to death on the golf course and the investigations are led by an odd couple police team of a woman inspector and a jolly Indian sergeant. Muddying the waters is their former drunkard boss who is now a private eye. The story is pacy and full of well-drawn characters. Complex financial shenanigans play a major part in the story and are described in a way that is accessible to the layman. I found a few minor elements of the story unconvincing but the whole hung together very well. This is the second of a series and I shall add the first to my reading list.

Just finished this Author's 2nd book. I enjoyed Murder on Page One and was curious to find out if characters reappeared. Sure enough they did but with interesting changes. The Author obviously knows St.Andrews, The Old Course Hotel, the course itself and modern banking antics - what a mix to create an excellent read. From the very beginning I found I was "a part of this murder scene", very well written, looking forward to the 3rd book!

Inspector Flick makes a most welcome return in Ian Simpson's second book. This is a great holiday read which moves along at a cracking pace and is written with same wonderful detail and humour which we have grown to expect. I just hope that the Inspector's "condition" won't delay the production of the next novel!

This is Ian Simpson's second book, and is even better than the first. A great murder mystery, which keeps you unsure of the murderer to the end. Nice to have a complex female detective too.
More please Ian!!
