Baker & Taylor
Pro golfer and amateur sleuth Lee Ofsted takes a job at a golf school on a New England island, where she finds herself in the midst of murder

Blackwell North Amer
The golf course on bucolic Block Island has only nine holes, its fairways are swaths of meadow open to gusty sea breezes, and the "greens" are just compacted sand. Surprisingly, Lee Ofsted, there to teach golf to the executives of a local salvage company, doesn't mind. The setting is lovely, the rustic inn at which she is staying is charming, and the pay - $1,000 a day - will go a long way toward covering her expenses during her third year on the pro tour.
After a bizarre, botched kidnapping of his sexy wife, the owner of the salvage company turns up dead on the beach. Lee can't resist doing a little nosing around, and soon discovers that nearly every manager at the company has a motive for murder. Plunging into the case, she asks her boyfriend, Graham Sheldon, a former California cop, for his expert help.
As the pieces of the puzzle come together, Lee has to size up her competition - just as she would in a golf match. Only this time clutching under pressure could be fatal. For Lee Ofsted knows too much for the killer to let her live...
