Review:

In this absorbing, accessible mystery from the prolific Miles, golf pro and former British Open-winner Alan Saxon (last seen in 1991's Flagstick) agrees to help design a new golf course for a Bermuda hotel, using a new hybrid grass strain (Cynadon dactylon), but his troubles begin even before he steps off the plane from England. A divorced dad, Alan has brought along his college-age daughter, Lynette, and at her insistence, an Oxford friend of hers, Jessica Hadlow. A dominating, spoiled and outspoken sexpot, Jessica quickly derails Alan's plan to enjoy a little holiday time with his daughter. Alan's architect partner, Peter Fullard, says things aren't going well with the golf course's construction, and they're made much worse when Alan discovers the body of a murdered man in the middle of the course. Then Lynette and Jessica get abducted. Alan struggles with Jessica's father, a wealthy businessman, from whom Jessica clearly derives her rude and arrogant manner, as well as with the police, the hotel management, Lynette's mother and his own guilt for not monitoring the two young women more closely. A seductive, long-legged golf enthusiast and Peter's threat to quit the project enormously complicate the picture. Miles has something for everybody in this delicious entertainment: a surprise villain, violent fisticuffs, an excellent golf game, lovely women, some sex, fine detective work and a stunning climax. --Publishers Weekly

"Although Miles has written many historical mysteries set in varying centuries (under the pen names Edward Marston and Conrad Allen), Bermuda Grass proves that he is as at home in the modern day as in previous eras. He weaves the game of golf into the plot seamlessly, making it a fascinating subject even if, like this reviewer, you're a confirmed couch potato. He tosses several balls (metaphoric, not golf) into the air and keeps them going with rapid-fire pace. Much of this rapid fire comes from the varied personalities of the different characters and how they interact. Much of the tension in this fast-paced page-turner occurs because the person whom Alan least wants to see, his ex-wife, turns out to be his staunchest ally."--"Drood Review"

Book Description Poisoned Pen Press, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English. Brand new Book. Alan Saxon is helping to design a golf course at a new hotel in Bermuda. When his daughter, Lynette, agrees to spend a week on the island with him, he envisages an idyllic holiday. He is soon disillusioned. To begin with, Lynette brings a fellow-student from Oxford with her on the trip and Saxon has grave doubts about Jessica Hadlow. The girl is arrogant, outspoken and brimming with sexuality. Because her father is a wealthy international businessman, her attitude to people and to money makes Saxon gasp. Once in Bermuda, his troubles really start. The nervous Peter Fullard, the course architect working with Saxon, tells him that someone is trying to sabotage their work. Saxon at first refuses to believe this but, when he discovers a dead body hanging from a cedar in the middle of the new golf course, he has to revise his opinion. Then his problems multiply as his ex-wife, Rosemary, is only too pleased to tell him. Saxon begins to wish that he'd never come anywhere near Bermuda. Alan Saxon made his first appearance in Bullet Hole (1986). Other titles in the series were Double Eagle, Green Murder and Flagstick. Seller Inventory # AAV9781590580134
