About this title


The novel that introduced golf writer and sleuth Pete Hacker. Covering a Tour event near Charleston, South Carolina, Hacker befriends a young up-and-coming pro. But when the man is found dead, Hacker has to dig through a cast of characters that includes a beautiful young golf groupie, a drug-dealing caddy and a strange Bible-thumping chaplain. And soon, Hacker's own life is in danger! "The author’s combination of golf and foul play is engaging." --Columbia (S.C.) State.

From Kirkus Reviews:

A pleasant, unremarkable first novel asking who shoved up-and- coming pro golfer John Turnbull into a ditch off the 14th hole after hours in the middle of a South Carolina tournament. Was it his brainy, attractive financial-analyst bride Becky, his longtime golf rival Bert Lewis, golf groupie Jean MacGarrity, drug-dealing caddy Jocko ``Drugstore'' Moore, or fundamentalist PGA preacher Brother Ed Durkee, whose ``God Squad'' stands to pick up a cool half-million of Turnbull's insurance? Golfer-turned-sportswriter-turned-detective Pete Hacker, when he's not immersed in earnest speculations about the metaphysics of golf (the book's title isn't as flippant as you think), manages to annoy the suspects into fistfights, attempted murder, and a final, plain-vanilla showdown. A series is promised, though it's likely to interest only hard- core golf fans. -- Copyright ©1991, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
