Lee Ofsted has been hired to teach golf to the executives of a local salvage company on the bucolic Block Island. The setting is lovely, and the $1,000 a day salary will go a long way toward covering her expenses during her third year on the pro tour. But will it be compensation enough for solving a murder? After a bizarre, botched kidnapping of his sexy wife, the owner of the salvage company turns up dead on the beach. Lee soon discovers that nearly every manager at the company has a motive for murder. Plunging into the case, she asks her boyfriend, Graham Sheldon, a former cop, for his expert help. Before long, the two of them are involved in a tale of greed and ambition that stretches back in time almost two hundred years, to a sunken treasure ship that went down in these very waters.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Amateur detectives come in all guises—why not a struggling female golf pro?…There are some genuinely funny scenes here, and O’Malley reads as if she’s in on the joke. She also brings out Ofsted’s intelligence and courage. This is lightweight fare, competently served.” Audiofile
“There are some genuinely funny scenes here, and O’Malley reads as if she’s in on the joke.” Audiofile
“Dependable light entertainment.” Kirkus Reviews
“The book’s real charm is in Lee’s innocent blundering: she’s sure of herself on the golf course, but finding a killer is a whole new bucket of balls.” Booklist
