If there is one thing the young golfer Lee Ofsted doesn't have on her mind, it is her chances of being selected for the Stewart Cup Tournament, the competition that pits the greatest American golfers, male and female, against their British and European counterparts. Lee is on no one's list of the "greatest American golfers," so it comes as a surprise when the great Roger Finley, captain of the American team, invites her to play.

She's on the team, but exhilaration soon gives way to anxiety. Can she deliver? However, as play begins, Lee's worries about making a fool of herself take second place when Roger's devoted, long-time caddie is found murdered, and Lee herself is the victim of an attempt on her life. It takes all of Lee's nerve and natural talent to see the competition through, to keep out of the gunsights of a resourceful killer, and, in the end, to make sense of a bizarre and paradoxical mystery.

About the Author:

With their backgrounds in art scholarship, forensic anthropology, and psychology, Charlotte and Aaron Elkins were destined to be mystery writers. Between them, they’ve written thirty mysteries since 1982, garnering such awards as the Agatha Award for the best short story of the year, the Edgar Award for the year’s best mystery, and the Nero Wolfe Award for Literary Excellence. The pair revels in creating intensively researched works that are as accessible and absorbing as they are sophisticated and stylish. Charlotte was born in Houston, Texas, Aaron in New York City. They live on Washington’s Olympic Peninsula.

From Booklist:

Most of the suspense in too many golf mysteries comes from anticipating the howlers, the on-course inaccuracies committed by writers unfamiliar with the sport. What a pleasure, then, to read the Elkins' Lee Ofsted series and watch two genre veterans work their way around a mystery plot and a golf course without any disasters. Almost. The story of LPGA pro Ofsted's experience at the fictional Stewart Cup (a Ryder Cup-like event in which women and men from the U.S and Europe compete against one another) is handled expertly from the beginning: the golf is spot-on, and the mystery, involving the murder of the U.S. captain's caddy, has a satisfyingly tricky conclusion. If only the Elkins hadn't slipped up on the eighteenth hole of the cup-deciding match. The action is perfectly realistic except for one problem: one of the player's scores is counted wrong. The tight finish isn't really all that tight. But let's be charitable: it's easy to miss a stroke, and that gaffe aside, the Elkins deliver a fine round of golf. Bill Ott
