9781939927002: Hanging Lies

In a word, Legacy Ridge is paradise. A gated Eden at the bottom of the Blue Ridge Mountains, it is home to an assembly of newly minted millionaires and one the most magnificent golf courses ever built. Yet something is terribly rotten in this private preserve of the retired rich. Clayton Palmer Bennett is an unscrupulous real estate developer. Pete Strickland is the disillusioned and dissolute head pro. Arlene Bennett is the manipulative wife who has captured the hearts of both men. When a brilliant young golfer appears on the scene, long- held secrets and deeply buried lies are suddenly thrust into the light. A humorous satire of the gilded lives of the country club set, the story moves between past and present, exploring how interwoven fates can shape unexpected futures and ill-considered choices can have a lifetime of consequences.

From the Author:

I have to admit it. This one is personal. For the past ten years I have spent a lot of time golfing when I should have been writing and, from time to time, writing when I probably should have been out golfing. 
 
Hopefully, somewhere in the pages of HANGING LIES you'll get a sense that, regardless, I have been doing something that I love. Isn't it just like a former ad guy to try and combine a hobby and a habit and try and pass it off as work.
 
Seriously, I truly do hope you enjoy this particular story. As an ardent golfer I have always been drawn to the strict rules and structure of the game. I don't believe I am the first, nor will I be the last, to draw parallels between the unpredictability of the game and its mirroring of the foibles of real life.
 
What I hope I've also given you is a glimpse into some of the other interesting facets of the game: how it has become a big business and, for those who choose to buy, build and retire into a golfing community, a pastime that defines an entire lifestyle.
 
With my tongue planted firmly in my cheek and, as the book flap so succinctly and legally describes, any resemblance to actual persons living or dead, is purely coincidental. Likewise with my mythical location Legacy Ridge. Think of it as a North Carolinian version of Brigadoon.
 
Indeed, what has made the writing of HANGING LIES so thoroughly enjoyable is the liberties that my craft allows in constructing composites of the numerous individuals who have been my golfing companions and fellow members over the years. Likewise the club professionals with whom it has been my pleasure to learn and experience the game.
 
 
In real life these individuals have been nothing but entirely honorable ...  their impeccable gentlemanly conduct inviting this dark-hearted writer to ponder the question: What would happen if they weren't? That is the essence of this particular story. Enjoy the read ... look for yourself in it if you must ... and play the ball as it lies.
