"Miles knows his golf and has us cheering the players as they attempt the impossible."
London Evening Standard
Helping to design a golf course in Bermuda, Alan Saxon takes his daughter, Lynette, there for a holiday. Saxon is alarmed to meet her friend and fellow-student, Jessica Hadlow, who is joining them. Arrogant, outspoken and brimming with sexuality, Jennifer is the daughter of a millionaire business tycoon.
Saxon arrives to learn that someone is trying to sabotage the new golf course, and he stumbles on a murder victim who has been hanged from one of the trees. A romance with an American woman staying at the hotel provides a welcome distraction until Lynette and Jessica are both abducted. The event not only brings Jessica's obnoxious father storming to the island, it also prompts Saxon's ex-wife to come as well. His hands are well and truly full as he tries to solve the murder while fighting off attempts on his own life.
"Miles has something for everything in this delicious entertainment; a surprise villain, violent fisticuffs, an excellent golf game, lovely women, some sex, fine detective work and a stunning climax."
"A delightful new mystery… Miles weaves the game of golf into the plot seamlessly."
