WHEN DEALING WITH THE RICH...

BE CAREFUL WHO YOU CROSS.
The Gryphon Gate town meeting disintegrates into a free-for-all as environmentalists, developers, residents and the media clash. Then the violence turns even uglier-a body is discovered lying face down in a sandtrap off the sixth hole. Called in to head the investigation, Police Captain Diane Robards is thwarted at every turn as she discovers that behind the elaborate landscaping and elegant doorways, in the privacy of bedrooms, yachts' cabins, clubrooms, and saunas, lie closely guarded secrets...
