Alan Saxon, pro golfer and amateur sleuth, has hit rock bottom. After a disastrous season on the golf circuit, he is hounded by his bank, harassed by his ex-wife and on the verge of losing his current girlfriend. So, when his friend and fellow pro golfer, Zuke Everett, invites him to trade another dreary English winter for a tournament at the posh new Golden Haze Golf Club in sunny California, he leaps at the chance.
However, Saxon soon finds himself enmeshed in a tenacious web of violence and intrigue as he attempts to find his friend’s killer and free himself from suspicion. Beatings, betrayal and police badgering are par for this, the most treacherous course of Saxon’s life.

Keith Miles, who lives in England, is the author of more than thirty mysteries, one of which, written as Edward Marston, was nominated for a prestigious Edgar Award by the Mystery Writers of America. He has also written more than forty original plays for radio, TV, and the theater; worked as a story editor for a movie company; and run his own professional theater group.From Publishers Weekly:
Miles has come up with an offbeat, reluctant detective for his murder mystery: Alan Saxon knows about police work because his father was a cop in England. Saxon is an English golf pro, down on his luck when he is asked to play in the Tournament of Champions in California by golf buddy Zuke Everett. The tournament is being held to inaugurate a new golf course, Golden Haze, owned by the shark-like tycoon Rutherford Kallgren. Though he hates cops on principle, Saxon becomes determined to discover who murdered his pal Zuke. Suspects abound, and his investigation leads him back to Zuke's first wife, a clash with Zuke's movie-star second spouse, and various rich, powerful and talented people in the L. A. golfing world. Then someone tries to kill Saxon, and the cops begin to wonder if he, not Everett, was the intended victim. This enjoyable romp should entertain mystery and golfing fans alike and keep the reader guessing right to the end.
