At the Augusta National Golf Course, home of the Masters, the spring grass is green and the world's most famous golfers are gathered. It looks as if it's going to be another splendid tournament. Until Melvin Newton's body is found in Eisenhower Pond, the apparent victim of a suicide. But what looks like suicide to most, looks like murder to John Morris, a retired AP sportswriter, and his spirited, sexy friend Julia Sullivan.
Newton, a wealthy businessman and elite member of the club, is the type of man to be killed, not the type to kill himself, Morris reflects. He was a man with many enemies and few friends. But the list of suspects is enormous enough for Morris to include himself. Who didn't wish this man dead?
Play at the tournament progresses as does Morris's search for a killer. Then, after another inexplicable tragedy, Morris and Sullivan begin to whittle away at the possible suspects. Together, they creep around the course looking for clues and searching their memories when the trail seems to lead to an old enemy who may just turn out to be an old friend.
Set against the background of the famous and toney tournament, John Logue crafts a wonderfully inventive mystery, full of rich characters, good golf, and enough plot twists to astonish.
