Book Description

An unusual sports thriller’ - Oxford Mail

Death Trap is written with flair and knowledge. What Dick Francis has done for racing, Malcolm Hamer must surely do for golf’ - South Wales Evening Post

A highly entertaining sports thriller – smooth as a manicured green’ - Manchester Evening News

The plot is water-tight’ - Sunday Times

A pacy novel’ - The Observer

Chris Ludlow’s life is in turmoil. Having been fired from his City firm, he finds a job carrying the bag of the brilliant young Ben Massey, a member of Europe’s Ryder Cup team.

But scandal and discord follow the team all the way to California, and Chris suspects a ‘dirty tricks’ campaign by the Americans, who seem determined to win back the Ryder Cup at any cost.

The focus is especially strong on Ben Massey, who is accused of murdering his roughneck brother, and also on the past of the European Captain, Ross Bentley.

With the unsteady support of his journalist friend, Toby Greenslade, Chris has to find a way through a minefield of deceit – and also help Ben and his team to win the Ryder Cup.

More About the Author

Malcolm's writing career began when he and his wife, Jill Foster, published The Family Welcome Guide - about family-friendly hotels, pubs and restaurants in the UK. It went into 23 editions during the '80s and '90s.

The first Chris Ludlow golf mystery, 'Sudden Death', was published in 1991 and was followed by four more Chris Ludlow stories, as well as a blockbuster, 'Predator', about a ruthless agent at large in the world of international sport. His other books include a history of the Ryder Cup and a guide to European golf courses.

Malcolm's new novel, 'Patriotic Games', was published in 2013 and was initially inspired by a photograph of the Corinthians team which toured Canada and the USA in 1906. His speculation about how many of that team might have perished in WW1 provided the impetus for the novel.

Malcolm has been an agent for sportsmen since the early '70s. His clients, past and present, include squash player Jonah Barrington, Muhammad Ali, golfer Johnny Miller, football stars Denis Law and Trevor Brooking, top rugby players such as Gareth Edwards and Phil Bennett, and many other sporting heroes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dick Francis of the golf world 13 Sept. 2001
By A Customer
Enjoyable murder mystery romp with the detective caddy - easy reading, page-turning and unlikely to tax the mind too much!

4.0 out of 5 stars Golf & crime 10 Oct. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're a golfer and enjoy crime, this fills the void. Written in the early 90's, before the Ryder Cup got nasty. Not just for Brits.
