When a leading QC is found dead after a function at the law courts in Edinburgh, rumour has it that he had been having an affair with the wife of a senior police officer. Detective Inspector Flick Fortune and Detective Sergeant Bagawath Chandavarkar (Baggo) encounter hazy memories, awkward lawyers and a fervent religious group. Their efforts are derided in the press by ex-Inspector No. In the background, a multi-million pound fraud trial reaches its conclusion as unorthodox methods are needed to reach the truth... Ian Simpson is inspired by a number of authors, including PG Wodehouse, John Mortimer and William Boyd. His writing style is comparable to Christopher Brookmyre. Murder in Court Three is the gripping follow-up to Ian's first novels, Murder on Page One and Murder on the Second Tee, both of which have attracted national and local media coverage and glowing customer reviews.
After a legal career that included sitting as a judge in High Court murder trials, Ian Simpson has been writing crime fiction. In 2008 he was shortlisted for the Debut Dagger. He was brought up in St Andrews. This is his third published book.
