In this crime novel set in the world of golf, someone has ploughed up a green at the Royal West Wessex days before a major tournament. Then there is a body in a bunker and Inspector Angus Straun's escape from routine threatens to become a nightmare.

From Publishers Weekly:

Cork's first mystery bears the originality, dry wit and suspense typical of the best British thrillers. Angus Straun, police inspector and author, recounts the doings at the Royal West Wessex Golf Club, where he is investigating suspicious acts originating in landscape vandalism but escalating to the murders of Keith Fletcher, feminist April Yonge and others. Since only days remain before a tournament (expected to attract huge crowds and TV coverage) takes place, cunning is required to guard the gathering world-class champions and halt the perpetrators. Luckily, Straun's literary agent and true love, Laurie Wilson, is on hand to help crack the case. This appealing partnership turns in an offbeat, ace performance in Cork's capable hands.

From Library Journal:

Despite an invasive British atmosphere, an appealing sports subject, a best-selling author/police inspector, and occasional evidence of a very dry wit, Cork's first mystery falls a bit short. While these trappings provide interest, the lame and intermittent plot does not. Inspector Angus Straun, Maserati driver and lukewarm public employee, interrupts his vacation to help solve damaging disruptions (vandalized greens, exploding golf balls, possible murder) at the Royal West Wessex, country club host of the world-renowned Tamworth Golf Classic. A mixed bag, certainly, but an author worth watching.--
