The opening of an elite country club, marked by a prestigious golf tournament, turns to chaos when a man is found dead in the clubhouse jacuzzi – with his throat cut. When the murder is linked to a legendary witches’ curse, Assistant Chief Constable Bob Skinner thinks it’s fantasy. He’s more concerned with harsh reality than East Lothian’s past as a centre for witchcraft. But when another body is found, he must uncover the disturbing truth beneath a dark mythology…

I don't know about you, but why are there so so so many 5 star reviews. I LOVE books, but so few are 5 star.
I enjoyed the first two, but as a series starting to suffer from hyperbole. I don't think I'll be listening to another any time soon.
"best QJ yet"
What an ending. Quintin Jardine certainly kept this story interesting until the very end.
I love the Bob Skinner books - perhaps as an emigree Scot I would love to live in Gullane.
Excellent Story, Excellent Narrator - except he says goffer instead of golfer!
"Great for golf aficionados"
A well read, rather prolonged quite but good although guessable thriller, over padded by golf references. Somewhat disappointing.
"this is not the book set out in the summary"
this isan early Bob Skinner and about average for the series. if you like the skinner saga soap opera you will like this. it is a one read book
